Government Guaranteed Path to Permanent Residence
The greatest opportunities for experienced Registered Nurses are in the Regional areas, rather than the cities. Accordingly, the Australian Government has provided significant incentives for experienced Registered Nurses to achieve Permanent Residence in a relatively short period of time.
These incentives include many of the benefits enjoyed by Australian Citizens and Permanent Residents, but awarded before the final grant of Permanent Residence, provided the applicant fulfils the conditions of the visa.
Employer Sponsorship provided
We are able to facilitate sponsorship by employers who have been approved by the Australian Government to sponsor Registered Nurses on a Provisional Permanent Residence visa.
The primary requirements of this visa include 3 years full time previous experience as a Registered Nurse, in any country, nurse registration in Australia with AHPRA, the nurse registration authority in Australia.
If you do not have registration in Australia, we can, under certain circumstances, facilitate AHPRA registration.
Attractive Salary, Terms and Conditions
Registered Nurses in Australia are among some of the highest paid professionals in Australia, and indeed the world. Salaries for experienced Registered Nurses are well above, on average, those paid in the UK, Ireland, and Asia.
The Cost of Living in Australia is relatively low in the regional areas, when compared to cities in Australia, and indeed when compared to the UK and Ireland.
The majority of Registered Nurses in Australia who we have recruited have been able to purchase a home, and enjoy a very good lifestyle.
What Careers are Available in Australia?
Australia requires nurses in the specialty areas of nursing where the shortages are most acute, rather than general Medical/ Surgical departments.
These areas include Aged Care homes and Acute Care Hospitals;
- Operating Theatre
- Neuro Surgery
Aged care nursing in Australia
While most Asian nurses are not familiar with aged care nursing homes, next to hospitals, Aged Care is the largest employer of nurses in most western countries including Australia.
- There are almost 3,000 aged care homes in Australia caring for 155,000 residents.
- There are over 35,000 registered nurses caring for these residents.
- Almost 70% of these residents require a high level of care.
Opportunities for Overseas Nurses in Hospitals
There are 1291 hospitals in Australia, with 81,818 beds, 7.3 million patients and 24.3 million patient days
- The average stay in a hospital is therefore 3.3 days.
- Public hospitals account for 67% of the available beds, and private 33%.
- Private hospitals have a greater proportion of surgical patients than Public Hospitals, where medical patients predominate.
