    Hey Tookie -- did you know they'd built a brand new PA -- opened (I think) Xmas 2001 -- & they are in the process of knocking the old one down -- nearly finished thank goodness, cos good old Ipswich Rd is kind of dusty while they're doing it.....

    G'day from Adelaide on a glorious day! Happy (belated) Australia day. I am a new member, what great timing, hey?

    I am an R.N working in Aged Care, and share many of the concerns raised by Tookie and others, particularly in regard to the Accreditation process, the excessive documentation requirements and multiple roles Managers are required to fulfill in this sector, from washing bums to washing floors and everything in between.

    Sairz, Rural and Remote need people like you! Never did it long term but spent a month on prac in Mt Isa in Qld. (That's where I met my Pommy boyfriend, and he's why I'm not in the original Wales instead of the New South one.)
    My best friend back home works in Roma Hospital which is pretty small - he loved it for a while, but has gone off it completely due to a few social problems (church related). The nursing, the hospital and the town he loved, but he just didn't fit in. Hopefully, he (and you!) will find somewhere that's perfect for him.

    er, and you...I think you know what I meant
