hi to all
Hi my names Dawn im a mental health nurse working in dementia hopefully relocating with bupa who i work for in uk, on 457 visa, how was the registration proccess with south au nursing board?
would love to hear your expieriances in oz
hi is there any nurses out there???
im a nurse i came over from the UK with my boyfriend in december also on a 457. Im working in oncology at a private hospital in Adelaide which im really enjoying. Weve settled in very quickly and love it here. The nursing culture is very different here and at first it can be frustrating. I found the whole registration process a bit ball ache but once youve got all necessary documentation together its pretty much plain sailing from there. Good luck with the move hope it all goes well for you and if you need any help or advice just ask.
Hya, we are both menatl health nurses here in Adelaide. You will find the experience very different and a little upsetting but we are happy to meet up with you so you can vent!!! good luck
Hi thanks for the reply, iv heard it's abit differant over there!, i qualified 27yrs ago so maybe it'l be a trip down memory lane!! lol
