Question Applying as a Registered nurse in Australia

Hi All, my sister is a registered nurse in Zim, would like to immigrate to Australia to work there, I'm just wondering if anyone can advise me how to apply for her. Does she need to get a job in Australia first, if so how do go about to apply for this? I mean i was on the immigration website and i think i can do an online application. Also I think she will have to take TOFL exams as well. Please advise

Thanks everyone

Hi gosia,

I am a registered nurse as well..acc to my exp first of all you need to apply for nursing skill assessment with Anmac,a nursing authority .once u get a positive skill assessment to could apply for registration to work as a nurse with other authority named AHPRA.to apply under general skilled migration skill assessment is compulsory,however in order to work as a nurse in australia on any work visa,you just need the registration with AHPRA.also in order to get registration one must have 7 bands in each of the modules in Ielts test or B grade in each in OET test...

I was in australia when i got admission in bridging course to get my registration as a nurse..i am basically from India and completed the bachleors degree in nursing (4 yrs) from my country..even then we need to do this course so that we could given enough knowledge rrgarding the australian helath system...
Regarding job,it was really very disappointing in the beginning as i was a fresh nurse without any experience.but now i am working through a recruitment agency and getting enough work..
For the experienced nurses its not reallly very hard to get even a permanent job...

Hi,
Just wondering if I failed the listening part of the OET but passed the three components, can I just re-sit the listening test instead of the four? Will DIAC accept this results?

Thanks
