    Pay enquiry

    Hi all Just wanting to know what the average take home pay a month after tax for a year 9 RN after tax please in BC please? And do all nurses get paid monthly??
  2. Aussie/NZ RN here trying figure out which would be the easiest province in Canada to apply for my NNAS. I have heard that BC makes it really hard at times and some have said ON was easier. Is it easy to swap provinces once initial registration comes through?
  3. Hi all I am an ER nurse in australia currently working in a remote part of australia. I am thinking of places that are great for families with young kids in terms of housing, education and affordability. I am not a city person but would not want to be in a completely remote place either. I would love to have access to the beaches and mountains and not be landlocked. I am in the process of getting my certification started with NNAS but trying to decide between BC or Alberta. My husband currently works as a truck driver in the mines and it would have to cater to him as well. I am open to any advice. I have googled the hell out of these 2 places but would love to hear first hand experiences from other international nurses who have moved to either of these places. 😎 Also, how much time are we given to do our NCLEX once we have been approved by NNAS? Thanks guys

    NZ trained RN

    Hi all just wondering if there were any NZ trained nurses who had to do extra theory hours in maternity/paeds for registration in Canada? I trained in CPIT and it seems we did quite a few theory hours in the above but unsure how much was needed. Thanks heaps

    Hi could anyone give me a list of what each level that is used in Australia mean? For example: what is a grade 1 nurse division 1 nurse equivalent to as I am a nurse in NZ and we only have level 1-5. Level 1 being new grads rns.
  14. Hi all! I am 2 months away from becoming a RN in new zealand. I have applied for a new grad program with Flinders medical centre and am waititng to hear back from them. Is there anyone out there who could give me more information about nursing in south australia? and are there any nurses out there who are working at flinders? or any of the hospitals in SA. I am interested in getting into the specialty stream either in ICU or ED. Would really appreciate any information anyone has for me with regards to wages, housing onsite FMC, probability of working overtime etc. Thank you for your time.
