Today there are more choices available to nurses than ever before particularly in terms of where and when to work. There is and will continue to be for some time to come a worldwide shortage of Nurses. This has come about through a number of factors these include, improvements in medical technology, procedures and medication that have all contributed to the growth of the healthcare sector and more importantly life expectancy of the general population. In tern this has created an increased demand for aged care services too, further increasing the shortage of Nurses. This has meant that there is no shortage of work for qualified Nurses and nursing jobs in many areas are plentiful.
As in all parts of the world nursing jobs in Australia are always in demand. The Australian government has made it relatively easy to get a work visa for nurses as long as their training and work experience meets specific criteria. After the USA and UK, Australia is one of the best countries to look for a nursing career. When you search online for nursing jobs in Australia, you will find a large number of recruitment agencies providing facilities and options regarding job opportunities. Before thinking or applying for nursing jobs in Australia, it is mandatory for nurses to register with the national registration body AHPRA.
Australia is a relatively welcoming country for nurses who wish to migrate however they need to have their qualification assessed before applying. There are many countries whose healthcare systems are similar to that of Australia and fewer checks are required. In some circumstances your documents may are needed to be sent to the Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs for migration for assessment by the Australian Nursing Council Incorporated. Currently nursing jobs in Australia are in high demand and visa applications for this category receive priority processing. Nurses need to be in good health and are required to pass a health examination.
