I'm an irish nurse just arrived in melbourne . i've joined agency and am going to be working in public/private hospitals, general wards. In Ireland. we basically do all the work/care alone for our allocated patient load (6-9 approx) this includes everything from personal care. You may get some assistance from care assistant or student nurse if lucky to have one assigned to you.
In Australia I believe you have different grades of nurses below Div 1. My question is basically what tasks can be delegated. What is the main role of the Div 1 nurse.???
