  1. Does anyone know if uk nurses can work in australia with a 3 year diploma, or do we have to have a degree?

    Suggest that you check out the Aussie forum, this has been discussed many times there in the past.

    absolutely not a problem, google 'nsw nurse registration board', or 'anmc' for links to all aussie boards. What are your career plans? or are you just interested in the travel options, I would'nt believe the things you hear about over here, nursing wise, i've found it like going back in time to the 80's! feel free to pm me if you wish.

    i am a uk nurse (diploma level) working in NSW, as a paediatric trained nurse i am restricted to nursing children only-this suits me fine. However it does cause a few problems when my ward is closed as they are limited to where they can send me... For the most part though its not a problem....
