Hello,

Im currently a nursing student in my 3rd year of a 4 year BScN program. After graduation I am really wanting to work in Australia for a couple of years before returning to Canada for grad school.

I am wondering if anyone has any insight related to getting a job in Australia right out of school? Ive researched a bit and seen the options for work holiday visas, but I can't seem to find any information about job requirements, or agencies that may be an asset in this kind of situation.

As you can probably tell I have just begun to research this and am still pretty lost, so anything at all that anyone can help me out with on this topic would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you

you would probably benefit from getting experience before moving elsewhere especially to another country

Australia is NOT short on new graduate nurses. There are many many local grads without jobs. It is also almost impossible to get a hospital job as an RN without doing a grad program. I'd suggest getting some experience, at least 2-3 years, before moving here.

Agreed, you need experience before you come to a different country, very different health care system, different drugs etc. Most nursing agencies will point you in the direction of the dept of immigration website which is actually quite easy to navigate through. You can find out how much you can work on those visas.

As a former manager you need registration and a visa before I will look at you as there will be 5 local applicants for the role.
