Hi Anna, and Nurses always seem to be in demand just like about anywhere on the planet, there being a special section on the Immi site for Doctors and Nurses - Doctors and Nurses - Workers - Visas & Immigration
Welcome to the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council Incorporated (ANMC) | Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council should also be helpful re registration requirements.

Many nurses from what I gather use the employer sponsored approach which will normally get a visa for you quicker, following which after being with an employer to show your value they may be prepared to sponsor you for permanent residency.

Alternately, some will put in an application for an independent skilled visa so that is being processed whilst they have gone to Australia on an employer sponsored temporary residency visa, the 457.
When your independent PR visa is ready for granting you would need to take a trip abroad, New Zealand, Noumea, Fiji, PNG, Bali or Singapore etc. to allow it to be granted.
You can look at the two different approaches by following Visa Option links from top two heading/links on Workers - Visas & Immigration

You can apply for the offshore visa whilst in Australia and even though here on a 457 you'll not be eligible to apply for independent onshore as two years of study here is a basic requirement for that.
Hence the need to go offshore for granting of an offshore visa application, even if it is made while onshore.
And just to confuse you a little more, there has been a temporary suspension on accepting offshore 175/176 and 475 visas until about July01 owing to numbers having been received in anticipation of not being eligible with new occupations of the new Skilled Occupations List to be effective from then.

A google for nursing employment will get you a heap of links re employers and agencies that can assist with finding an employer sponsor.

But have a look in the Visas&Immigration section and there was a recent thread where I outlined some info for another nurse - maybe back a few pages in that section.
