Not from this country. Our own nursing students have few government scholarships and if there was a scheme it would have hundreds of applicants that it would cost the Australian taxpayers millions.
The government has already extended placements for nurses at Australian universities so that we may have enough Australian educated RN's in the future, immigration of nurses is supposed to be a fill in.
All nurses here still have to pay for university even subsided places still cost our parents or the student 12-20,000 AU, so it is not cheap for an Australian to become a nurse either.
There are schemes apparently in your country, that give loans according to your families assets. But you need a job here to pay it back.
If you do not have any/very little experience it is becoming increasingly difficult to get a job especially for an employer to sponsor a visa for an international new grad, when our own are having trouble getting a job for a nurse with no experience.
AS for what is the best way to go,....I would say the shortest and quickest as you will still be seen as an IEN no matter what way, 1 year university or a shorter and cheaper bridging course. You need to be here soon, jobs are not plentiful in Victoria anymore and I have heard from grads/little experience that NSW is filling up quickly.
And Queensland has a employment freeze on nurses that are not experienced, as half of their new grads from last year did not get jobs or were offered part-time.....which of course will not get any International nurse a sponsored visa as the job needs to be full time.
oh, thanks for sharing those information, anyway i need to have experience here first, i just made some research so that i have a guide on the things that i need to do like how many years of experience will i be needing, amount of money to be save to support my BP in the future etc, but i'm kinda sad to know that the status there is filling up quickly, i hope that there will still be "slots" when i do have the experience needed (about a year or two) i know that many things will happen and change but i still hope for the best,
btw what does IEN and NSW means??
They mean: Internationally Educated Nurse and the other New South Wales, a state of Australia- capital - Sydney.
....and my bandwagon....you need to pass the english test as well.
You need it to apply to complete your application for assessment.
Thank you! I'll just hope for the best.. :)
