      Nurse out there

      Hopefully this is in the right place.
      Any nurses out there. What are wages like for nurses in Adelaide? (I have 4 years experience back here in the UK)
      I've applied for my 190 visa and hoping to be in Adelaide in September.
      So now I'm trying to work out what job prospects will be like and what wages would be like so I can work out where I can afford to live.
      Thank you

      Hi
      What is your specialty? There are jobs of course but not as many as there are in other states.
      I work for a non government organisation and really enjoy it. The people are great. I have found the Doctors to be far less superior (or up themselves) than UK Doctors and treat nurses with respect whereas many Drs believe themselves to be Gods in my UK experience!
      Wages are better here and overall I have less responsibility for more money and you get paid approx 9% super (pension) on top of your wages which is great. My organisation also offer salary sacrificing which is a great way to save on tax.
      I would look on www.seek.com.au or indeed.com.au for jobs.

      Good luck with your journey

      Thanks for the reply. I have work in general surgery and urology. So nothing too specialised. I very much like the comment about doctors :) and more money! I'm assuming wages are incremental like they are in the UK from what I've read so guessing I'll start back at the bottom. But unlike UK job adverts Australian job adverts done seem to give wages.
      Less jobs is okay. I only need 1 after all.

      If you get proof of your incremental point then you should be able to negotiate year four pay. If you put salary parameters on the seek website it will only show the jobs paying between those. I'm not sure what you would get as I am an RN2 at the top of my band (top band 6 equiv), however you should be able to get the payscales from either ANMF or SA health websites.
