Confused between UK & Australia.

  1. Respected members

    I'm a RN with 5 years of work experience in India and cleared OET with B in all sections. Even after 7 trials I couldn't get 7 in IELTS fully. Now with OET I'm at crossroads between UK and Australia.
    Since I haven't been outside India my knowledge regarding international nursing is minimal. I request you to help in making decisions.
    It is heard that CBT is required for UK and OSCE for Australia. I wish to live the next 25 years outside India.

    Which would be better in this market situation like Brexit and financial crisis, UK or Australia?
    Would it be better to work in UK for 2 years, gain experience and exposure, then migrate to Australia?
    Would I be able to take my spouse along?
    Could you give me step by step procedure for these countries or links where I can read it?
    Hope you all would help me to materialise my dreams.
    Thank you

    NMC would be the place to look for the UK in regards Nurse registration and UK borders for immigration. AHPRA would be the place to look for Australia in regards Nurse registration and the government of Australia website would be the place to look for immigration. Usually spouses can go with you

    How to get it from them. Some said I have to create an account for this. But need ID first.

    I believe once you submit application with NMC they will give you a number

    So the application should be by courier? Not online? I think 2 tests are CBT and UKVI. After reaching there OSCE.
    But wondering if I can do the process without any agency or middlemen.

    Many do the application themselves. Just check out the NMC website and registration for those that trained outside the EU
