Hi all
Me and my girlfriend want to take the plunge and move down under from the uk. We initial want to try the country out for 6 months. She is currently in her last year of becoming a nurse. Where do we start and what are the best ways of going about things?
All help appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Baz and Liz

This has to be your first point of call:

Working in Australia as a Nurse - Doctors and Nurses - Workers - Visas&Immigration

Australia & NZ are similar in their requirements to enable a new migrant to work in their countries.
New zealand's nurses and midwives board require you to provide evidence of practice for the past 3 years prior to application.You may be able to find more here: Nurses - ANMC - Australian Nursing & Midwifery Council

In Australia, there is no specific rule that you should have a related experience before you apply for registration. although, those who have experience are asked to provide evidence. to confirm this, you can check with the respective state registration authority where you intend to register. each state has its own rules and regulations and it may vary from state to state.

Also, Australia has a national regulating authority for registration of nurses and midwives - It would be a good idea for you to contact these people prior to making a decision to move.

In Australia you have two choices: enroll in a pre-registered course or register directly (may or may not be required to undergo an assessment program).

You may want to contact the regulating bodies or universities or any other person or agent that may help you with your decision.Generally you will find these very accommodating and should be able to answer all of your questions if they can.

Applications can be done on your own. An agent or agency is not really necessary, however, if you have the cash and if you feel you need help from a professional then you may opt to consult migration agents regarding your case and they can be found anywhere in Australia and around the world. Choose your agent well though. There are free assessments and there are also paid assessments. Ask what these will be before undertaking an assessment as they can vary wildly. They will explain if you stand a chance of your application being approved and will provide you alternative options if your case is not suitable or not strong enough for your desired visa application. They can also give you an idea about the average processing time for the specific visa you require.

I hope this has been of some help.

Good luck
