1. i need to get information about the education system
overview from australian government here and/or here

2. anything interesting in nursing that may be different from the us?
suggest you answer this after doing some reading from the above links

3. how nurses are treated in australia
like everything else, depends on the nurse, the treator, the circumstances in general. could you be more specific?

4. possible pay scale for fnp
depends on years experience as well as qualifications, hours of work, employer (eg govt or charity not-for-profit or private for-profit), state etc. interesting article covering lots of the issues here.... otherwise, suggest you google "nursing pay rates in australia"

5. how easy is it to find a job?
very - desperate shortage of nurses australia-wide - especially in rural areas.

6. typical benefits for nurses
do you mean apart from the satisfaction of a worthwhile job done well? tax concessions on salary is the obvious one.

good luck with your assignment
