Hello Everybody........Hope everyone is well :o
My name is Nicola and I am 26 years old from Surrey (originally from Hertfordshire), and I am currently in my 2nd year of studying to become a Nurse.
When I was 18 (June 2003, 8 years ago): I was arrested and convicted of Theft and subslequently have a criminal record. When I was 24 I decided to sort my life out and train to be a Nurse, which I am thoroughly enjoying, with the hope of emigrating Down Under as this has been an ambition since childhood. I hope to qualify as a Nurse in July 2012 (27 years of age).
My question is that: even though I will be a qualified Nurse (fingerscrossed) will my criminal record discount that out and I will I be granted entrance to Australia? Also, what do people know about Graduate Nursing Programmes? I understand that the Royal Adelaide offers this and just wondered what people's opinion on them would be.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to receiving any advice given. :D
