With the help of Nursing Careers Australia, Indian nurses building their careers and changing their lives in one of the world’s most affluent countries.

“A few days after the nurses arrive, they start the four-week theory component of the competency assessment program,” Allan explains. “This is where they learn about Australia’s healthcare system, how our drugs and equipment differ from what they’re used to India, and the different legal requirements that are designed to protect both patients and medical staff.

“Students are given research-based assignments that focus on various medical conditions,” Allan explains. “This forms the theory component of the course.”

“The theory stage also addresses the nursing culture and philosophy that exists in Australia,” Allan continues. “Australian nurses are highly respected and are given a level of responsibility not seen in India’s health system. And to ensure they have access to the latest information and expertise, Indian nurses are taught by Australian tutors and specialists from all over the world.

A week after the nurses graduate, NCA founders Allan and Maria Pitman travel from Sydney to Melbourne to talk through any individual concerns or questions the nurses may have.

“Some of the nurses want to know more about the cultural differences between India and Australia while others are more interested in simply exploring the city of Melbourne,” Allan explains. “This is a great opportunity for us to get to know the nurses so we take them out for dinner and celebrate what is the beginning of their new career in Australia.
