Hi everyone,

I'm currently a nurse working in a Sydney hospital and I'm considering moving to Melbourne.

Is the role of a nurse in Melbourne different to a nurse in Sydney? Is it a widely different scope of practice? Is the way vital signs are recorded, medication admin rules, documentation.etc. different in Melbourne? Am I able to get a job in Melbourne from my experience as a nurse in Sydney alone? 

Is there anything else I may need to consider?

Anyone with knowledge or experience with moving interstate able to pass on some info?
