I'm a student nurse currently in my final year and am looking to move out to Adelaide in Jan 2015. I've been looking at the job prospects for newly qualified nurses in Aus and it seems pretty poor unless you get a post grad TPPP position so my plan is to apply for as many of these as I can find in SA and hopefully I'll get a place in Adelaide.
I'm also planning a two week recky visit in August (also a nice opportunity to visit friends that I haven't seen in 3 years!) and I'm hoping to get to visit some of the hospitals and get a feel for what to expect. Ideally I'd like to arrange to meet up with ward mangers/other staff from the areas I'm interested in working in, namely neurology, accident and emergency or critical care.
Any body here have any experience in these areas or have any ideas as to how best to make contact with people that might help?
Thanks for any help,
