Hi,I'm a US RN thinking about nursing in Australia. I've been studying the Nurse/Midwife Agreement for Queensland and the Nurse/Midwife "Award" (new term for me) for Victoria. A lot of new terminology for me. Think I finally have a grasp on the levels/grades of nursing. But I have a question about the Victoria Award with regard to allowances (also a new term for me). There is a table in the award that lists shift allowances and allowances for certificates and diplomas. For instance, night shift says $67.70 and post grad diploma/degree says $70.68. What does this mean? Is that per week? Don't get it.
