    You messaged me regarding what I found for Australia. I am unable to send emails right now so this is the only way I can respond to you. I didnt want you to think that I was ignoring your message. I did contact a TON of ppl out there regarding post graduation. They basically told me the same thing. Basically it be very wise to wait atleast a year before doing it. It is not like here in the US where you can get hired on before graduation. You need to enter a post graudation position which is almost like another school. They train you and u take classes, which ppl precep. It is competitive to get into and they actually turn alot of nurses away because of it. Also, the license thing is a little complicated. You need to transfer your before you even start that process. SO, I decided that a 1/1.5 years experience would be the best thing to do before heading out there. This way you can get in with an agency who will place you at a hospital and you can move around the country and work. The agencies require a year experince to join. I also was not able to go out there to visit. Things in my life changed recently so it was not possible. I hope this helps you out. If you have an questions about anything, please feel free to ask!

    Good luck with your school!!!!
