welcome to the forum and yes Australia is a great country in which to live and I can understand people wanting to emigrate here, and the issue of studying something you want to Vs studying something to allow immigration has been handled in another thread I see you have posted on.

That aspect aside, you need to appreciate the Australian Governments' policy on immigration and aside from family/personal partnerships and humanitarium (refugee) programs, the goal of permanent residency and also temorary residency immigration is to attract people with skills that are needed and will add to the make-up of Australiab society as a whole, thus:
The purpose of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) is to 'enrich Australia through the well managed entry and settlement of people'.
and for much more detail there is http://www.immi.gov.au/about/departm...an-2008-11.pdf

Reading some of that plan will give you an indication that higher skill levels will more likely be found on SOL, this possibly opening a path to PR, but there are a number of factors involved - the 175 eligibility sticky link at top of the section providing detail.
And one of the reasons that higher skills are to the fore is that many people training in such skills in Australia go overseas themselves and can be lost to the Australian workforce for varying periods.

I could say if you feel like an occupation caring for people in one way or another that nursing may be a suitable career, but it is one of many and any skilled migration in the first instance relies on an applicant's occupation (if on SOL) qualifications being acceptable to Australian standards as determined by the governments' nominate occupation authority - contact details listed on SOL after all occupations.

The other path for immigration of people with skills is the employer sponsored temporary visa 457 - and under continued employment it can lead to a successful permanent residency application - have a look here - Temporary Business (Long Stay) - Standard Business Sponsorship (Subclass 457) . and then for the listing of occupations, here: http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/skill...ccupations.pdf

So it is something that when starting from scratch, you need to put considerable thought into, and plan commitent towards a chosen approach.

The career path you do choose, you may find in fact gives you a future you will be happy with in your home country.

I read an article about Chinese child care workers were being underpaid in Australia. I couldn't find the exact article, but this one came up:
Push to allow more foreign childcare workers

A NEW push has begun to force the Federal Government to open the gates to foreign childcare workers to combat severe staff shortages. A major Queensland alliance of childcare operators is calling for a change so overseas childcare workers can enter Australia on temporary 457 visas.
Of course this is just a news story at the moment, but it is an area of work in Australia that is very understaffed.

I know in many countries nannies and "ayi's" are very common, but it is not something common in Australia.

I am not sure if it will lead to PR, it is something you will need to look into further, but I am sure there are career paths as child care is getting to be big business in Australia, as in many families both parents work.

Please post your visa application details in the visa timeline threads - Skilled visa applications Spouse/Defacto applications
