  1. Rudd's attempt to lure nurses back

    Totally agree Grace! I might actually talk to my local member who is in the Rudd cabinet about ways to fix the nursing shortfall. One initiative is to break the universities of the january to december mindset. We need bigger intakes mid-year so we c...
  2. Q on NZ and Australian license

    Write ALL your experiences down. Personally judging by relatives who are accountants - she is probably just as likely to pick up a job as an accountant as a nurse (and will possibly make more money!!) The more experience you have the more likely it i...
  3. Doyaspeakadaenglish?

    I know there are some people born and bred here who are very hard to understand - Gympie is developing it's own accent for example. What surprised me was that this was the EEO office's view of the comment because I had always been raised to understa...
  4. Doyaspeakadaenglish?

    I am surprised since I was informed that even asking someone to repeat what they said because you could not understand thier accent was in fact bigotry.
  5. Welcome to the Forum - General Aussie Chat

    Well at least we have some rain in the dams lately so the drought it not so bad. (but a long way from being broken yet) Happy and prosperous new year to you too!:)
  6. Stupidest reason to go to ER

    Don't freak but over here we actually ask people to bring the snake in with them - aids in identification (a lot of ours look similar - just don't ask me to do the actualy ID because for that you have to count the anal scales and THAT is too close fo...

  8. requirements of a foreign nurese?

    Hmmmm - seems Queensland health is running a refresher/re-entry program and they USED to be a way to register if you were trained overseas AIN position description and salary
  9. Aussie Citizenship Test

    It is a total load of crock and with any luck it will be scrapped soon.
  10. Not asking for medical advice, but...

    You need to talk to someone. The condition is highly variable and NOT YOUR FAULT!! It's the ol' hormones dear;) BUT PLEASE - see your GP?
  11. new to neuro icu--will I ever be comfortable?

    Hang in there mate! It will all come together soon - remember deep breaths and say after me "Think calm blue ocean, think calm blue ocean":p
  12. Sepsis....I called it!

    Good for you!! Personally I think ALL doctors should spend some time in ICU - just to see what Septic shock is all about.
  13. Personal Care Assistant Issues (long!)

    Wound care - especially packing wounds would not be in any CNA/personal carers job description I would think. This sounds WAAAAAY" outside your scope of practice - as for rolling a 250 KG man by yourself - that too is not on. One way around this m...
  14. Nsg care of hypotensive pt

    If he was on Beta Blockers he may not have been. Beta Blockes sometimes "mask" the symptoms of shock by preventing tachycardia.
  15. Attack on nurses shows how deep the health care crisis really is

    You will never find ANY single payer system anywhere that people are 100% happy with. Often the countries that have single payer systems look on public complaints, especially in the media, as a method of feedback into the system to make it better. ...
