Nursing Careers AustraliaNursing Australia Careers, we recruit, place and support Indian nurses in nursing positions throughout Australia.

Our Success Stories


Nursing Careers Australia has helped nurses from all over India work and live in Australia. Feeling more like a family than a recruitment agency, we help our nurses with everything from travel permits and temporary accommodation to securing a job and finding a new home for their family.

This is what some of our recent graduates had to say…

Husbands & families

“Star Performer” Pompy Bose marries in New Delhi

RN Pompy Bose, who came to Australia nearly 18-months ago, has married her sweetheart Ankur Paul in a lavish ceremony back home in New Delhi. “It was a beautiful cascade of rituals,” she said. “It really was a lot of fun.”

Pompy, who was sponsored by Nursing Careers Australia in 2010, recalled when she first relocated to Australia.

“Initially I really missed my family and friends back home but I have come to really love this country,” Pompy said. “And even though I’m on my own till my husband arrives later this month, I feel so safe and secure. Even when my shift finishes at midnight, I feel safe walking back to my home.

“I just couldn’t imagine living by myself in India.”

Pompy said one of the greatest rewards of working as a Registered Nurse in Australia was the “pleasure and happiness” she feels when her work is acknowledged.

“I always believed I was a hardworking nurse but it wasn’t appreciated back in India,” she explained. “Here, you have more scope for promotion. For example, I was given the opportunity to work as a Care Manager within a year of working with Rosemore Aged Care. That would not have happened in India.”

Daughter follows in mother’s nursing footsteps

Inspired by her mother Anita Jordan Sunil who first graduated from The NSW College of Nursing in 2005, and now works in Mental Health at Monash Medical Centre Melbourne, Anita joined four other nurses and travelled to Australia with guidance from Allan and Maria.

Thanks to Nursing Careers Australia, they now all work in Melbourne and have been with the same hospital for five years. Ashima works as an assistant nurse at Sydney’s prestigious Royal North Shore Hospital while also studying the University of Ballarat’s preregistration course for overseas nurses.

Pictured left to right is Ashima’s husband Hersh Vhir, Ashima Janet, brother Sarbhak Joy, mother Anita Sunil, NCA’s Maria Pitman, and Ashima’s father Jordan Sunil.

Where Are They Now? RN Teena Thomas

NAME: TEENA THOMAS
FROM: ERNALUMAN, KERALA INDIA
POSITION: RN, AGED CARE
LIVES: TOOWOOMBA, QUEENSLAND

Teena was recently asked to be a Care Manager, a position that holds more responsibility and administration duties. “My job involves organising family conferences, creating Care Plans, and conducting audits,” Teena explains. “I will also be helping train a new nurse who is arriving soon from the Philippines.”

“Working in aged care is certainly challenging but there is so much job satisfaction and you really feel as though you are doing something important,” Teena says. “Nurses are the ones who are responsible for everything and they make most of the day-to-day decisions. Also, as an RN in aged care, you are required to do a fair bit of management that involves giving duties to the assistant nurses, and working in close contact with the families of the residents.

Teena Thomas, who lives in southern Queensland with her husband Sam, says she has fallen in love with Australia and “never wants to leave”. “I have so many friends here – Indian and Australian – and we often organise social functions through work on weekends,” Teena says. “Sam was recently granted an Australian Visa thanks to Allan and Maria’s help so he will be arriving here soon and I cannot wait!”
