I need an advise, I am an RN here in nj working for a nursing home. I really love my job but my boyfriend of six years got denied twice to come here so we can get married. He now has a job offer in melbourne,

australia and I am thinking about relocating there so we can finally settle down. Can you please advise me about how long the license processing is and on my chances of getting a visa to work there. I am worried I may not be able to continue working. Can you recommend hospitals or nursing homes where i can work? I have three years of long term care experience. I am also considering working in the hospital to enrich my nursing experience. Is there a big difference in the pay rate between nursing home and the hospital? I am eager to hear from you all. Thanks

Moved to the International forum.

In this and the Australin forum there are a few threads on the process. Starting point would be APHRA and meeting nursing board requirements. You may be able to work if married to someone who already has permission to work in Australia. Have you checked out the Australian government website on what visas are available for you?
