For WA - Level 1 is standard floor RN, you automatically move up a pay-point each year of employment/working as a RN (So 1.1 - first year, 1.2- second year, 1.3 - third year etc)
Level 2 is a senior/clinical nurse - you don't automatically go up to a level 2 position - they are positions that you apply for when you demonstrate skills & knowledge of that level - there is often a greater involvement in things such as quality development, safety projects etc. 
You will most likely be employed as a level 1.3 if you have three years full-time experience.
