IRON - Initial Registration for Overseas Nurses.

As you are in Australia (I am ascertaining this from your username - Sydney?) then please use this link which can help you write your selection criteria: Fact sheet 5: Addressing selection criteria - APSC

Selection criterias are simply proof that you understand, have practiced and have evidence (anecdotal) of that practice. Don't embellish or exaggerate. Be honest and highlight your strengths while showing confidently that you are well and truly capable of the position advertised.

If you have been rejected by past employers, there may be a common demoninator behind these rejections. Perhaps enrol in an English speaking and writing program at your nearest TAFE; you may speak very good English however, as your original post conveys, it is clear you lack some grammatical understanding. This may have impinged on successful applications?

Good luck to you!
