    Nursing Wages

    No probs. There is alot of agency work especially for adult nurses in the city and south of the river. The pay with the agency is at least double UK nursing hourly rate pay. Your wife is welcome to inbox me for further info if it will help.

    She should go to the top 1:8 with that experience. I'm a nurse with 11 years critical care experience and am on that band with an agency.

    Fab news. We emigrate to Perth in 3 weeks and our dog leaves in 2 weeks. How easy was it to secure a long term house rental with a dog?

    trouble with APHRA and ? new legislation

    Not sure, we arrive in Perth at the end of November and my assigned officer from APHRA told me that the criminal check takes 1-3 weeks, then it because I've already had my letter of eligibility to register as a nurse, it goes to a manager for finalisation which can take 2-8 weeks. Trouble is without a job you can't secure a long term house rental

    It can take 2-8 weeks after presenting in person to APHRA for your registration to be finalised.
