TEENA THOMASAfter seeing an advertisement in the paper about working in Australia, Delhi based nurse TEENA THOMASĀ went to a seminar hosted by Careers International in February 2008.”They showed a video of all these nurses and their positive feedback of their experiences was quite convincing,” Teena recalls from her new home in Toowoomba, Queensland, home of the spectacular Great Barrier Reef. “The fact that these nurses had come from Rajkumari Amrit Kaur (RAK) College of Nursing meant that they were reputable testimonials.”Already equipped with two years nursing experience and the necessary prerequisites, Teena filled out the paperwork and soon found herself on a plane to Australia.

“When you’re going to another country you wonder how you are going to cope but Allan and Maria really take care of you,” she says. “There are so many agencies in India that just desert you once you arrive in Australia but Nursing Careers Australia is like a family.”

One of the first things Teena noticed while working in the Australian medical system is how much nurses are respected. “Unlike in India, nursing is a highly reputable job – here you earn respect and good money,” says Teena, who now works as a Level 2 RN at Bupa aged care facility.

Teena is so happy with her decision to move to Australia that she is planning to get married here next year. “My fiance is currently in the UK but is hoping to come here so we can settle down,” she says, clearly besotted. “I really love this place.”
