Me too!! Just want to say hi to all the nurses out there didn't realise there were so many of us. Does this mean we can start to change some of the practice out here.
Any Theater Scrubbers here
Were coming across on the 14-11-08 and missus wants to know are there any Scrubs on here already working in Adelaide that she could meet up with and chat about what its like scrubbing over there.
Basically are scrub nurses f###up, twisted with as serious warp sence of humour as they are here ???:jimlad:. she's Orthopidics, traumer + some Neuro.
She will be working at the Calvary.

That's great that there are so many of us on here. I spoke with a chap from Clinical One this morning and he is passing my CV (or resume in Oz speak) to some private providers to see if I can get a telephone interview so will keep you posted.
In answer to your question Matt, I think most of us nurses have a similar warped sense of humour (my background is A&E) some of us worse than others though x
Missus used clincal one as well and got a job at the Calvary Wakefield.
Missus sez her telephone interview was quite funny as was just like a normal work chat.
Hey Coincidence, or what?
I too have gone thro' clinical one; got my registration application today, so another $190 spent.
Will be working in CALVARY NORTH ADELAIDE in Recovery............no longer suffering as a scrub or anaesthetic nurse; the Lord be praised. Happy daze
Hoping to make the jump about the same time as cornish and mrs cornish; how spooky is that?
Be good yawll
hi hun just be careful if you use an agency. I came through clinical one and im not liking my job much but i have a $5000 bond in my contract if i break it in the first 12 months, even though im on pr visa. I really wish i had waited til i got here to look for a job. Public is meant to be better than private, but i know i wanted a job before i got here so having done it id say approach the hospitals directly, just my advice.

Were staying at freedom meridan on Melbourn street for a couple of weeks untill we get the rental sorted.
So if anyone want to meet up for a drink, give us a shout.
Why is it blood and guts nurses have such a sadistic, warped sence of humour ?
After 12 years the missus still sometimes supprises me, but i aint complaining :).

OMG, a&e, theatre,recovery, hdu, respiratory,awfulpaedics, paediatrics, and a couple of midwives.........we could open our own hospital at this rate!!
I agree, using an agent isn't for everyone, but they can offer support and guidance, and do some of the leg work. I declined the offer of relocation packages, i like to have some control. Mind, what they offered wouldn't have shipped us out there anyway!!
Public or private; issues are the same..........doesnt warrant the worry just now.
Have a great day yawl, im cleaning up for the buyers!!!!
we are aiming for around the same date, but from Manchester. Haven't decided on which airline yet; need seats with plenty of leg room!! and of course, the baggage allowance for 6 of us is fast becoming an issue!
Would love to meet up for a bevvy, mate; it'd be great to be with other newbies!
Yes, theatre nurses are particularly odd; all that rummaging in other peoples innards, bound to have an affect on ones perspective! Also, being a bit loopy, takes your mind off the smell.....................and then theres the odour of the innards!!
