Hi, I'm currently awaiting the results of my ANMAC skills assessment and then it's on to applying for our 189 visa. Reading this forum and the sister sites of each states the lack of jobs available just now is obviously worrying.
I will be moving with my husband and 2 children, one at school and the other just a baby therefore due to childcare my husband will look after the kids for the first while until he either finds flexible work or until the youngest starts school. For this reason we are basing everything on only myself working and living on one salary which I know many people currently are.
My main concern is getting to Oz and finding no nursing work at all, obviously I need to work or we won't survive in oz on no money!
I was wondering of the nurses who have successfully made the move how long did it take to secure work? Did any on a PR visa manage to secure work before arriving? Those who didn't secure permenant work did you find agency work readily available? Did/do you obtain enough agency to cover full time work?
Did anyone really struggle to get any type of nursing work?
I have been qualified 6 years, only ever worked in medical (acute receiving and respiratory) however I am willng to work in any available nursing positions and will be happy to work for agencies or temp full time contracts until I am able to obtain permenant work.
