Desperate!!Scottish nurse needing advice

World International


Hello there!!

I am desperately trying to get some information/advice about the possibility of finding work in the community in New Zealand and/or Australia. Basically I would like to do the working visa thing for 1 year. I have had enough of my current job situation i.e. month to month contracts (yeah, the NHS wonders why they can't retain nurses) I have also come to a point in my life (32 years old, single and disastrous relationship situation!) whereby if I don't take this opportunity of travelling, I am going to stagnate and regret it for the rest of my life.

I suspect you folkies have a similar nursing structure to our system here in the UK. I am a District Nursing Sister delivering nursing care to those at home and who are unable to visit their doctor. This is includes a whole host of things such as care of the terminally ill, chronic disease management, wound management, health education and so forth.

I'd really appreciate any kind ofadvice and guidance on looking for this kind of work i.e are there any opportunities for me in this line of work, who should I contact, etc

Many many kind regards.
