    Nursing CV

    I was wondering if any of the kind nurse types on here could take a look at my OH's CV and give us some pointers on how to improve it for Oz? Possibly @ali ? I've read through a few old threads but any fresh advice on job hunting would also be great. She's got lots of years ICU experience, the last two of which as a Junior Sister (Clinical Nurse?). Thanks
  2. :wacko:Hi everyone can you please offer me any advice on moving to Perth? I am currently a Student Nurse and have just entered year 2 of a 3 year Nursing Degree so will qualify in 2017. We are hoping to move to Perth when i qualify and wondered if anyone has any advice or info for us that would assist and help us. I feel very priveledged and lucky to be training to be a Nurse as it is something that i have always wanted to do but i have to say that unfortunately if i thought that there was any way i could get my family to oz sooner i would give it all up tomorrow, as we just need to start our new lives. Me and my Husband are both 39 and we have 3 children who are currently 16, 13 and 8 and so we feel that this is something that we need to do sooner rather than later. My sister and her family moved there 5 months ago and we miss them desperately. They have said that we can stay with them until we get on our feet which will be a massive help to us. My Husband is currently training to be a Plumber and will qualify in 2016. However although he has been doing his training as an apprenticeship which means he has been actually doing the job while training, he wont have enough on the job experience to be able to apply for our visa in his name when he qualifies. This means that the only way of us getting there will be for me to apply in 2 years time when i qualify. I am under the impression that a qualified Nurse only needs 3 months on the job experience before applying for a visa? Does anyone know anything about this? My Husband was once in a position to apply as he had approx 9 years experience as a fibrous plasterer but unfortunately the time was right for us to emigrate at that time. It is now approx 6-7 yrs since he last worked as a fibrous plasterer so i don't think he would be able to apply on his visa for that trade anymore due to the time lapse since he last did that job? I am starting to feel a little desperate and just want to get my family there. Please advise me if you can. Thank you so much for taking time to read my post. ANY ADVICE/IDEAS MUCH APPRECIATED.
  3. Hi, I am new to Perth Poms. Moving to Perth in August with my husband and children. I'm a uk qualified learning disabilities nurse (diploma) with a top up degree in mental health. My aphra application is in at the moment- I hope it gets through. But my question is this- how flexible are employers regarding working hours, etc? I'll not have a support network and I'm a bit anxious about finding work that will allow me to meet all my other commitments (kids). Anybody got any advice or experiences? If I don't get my aphra reg through, I'd happily work for a charitable organisation. Just want to know/ have a bit of reassurance that we won't arrive to find that employers aren't as family friendly as they are portrayed- fingers crossed they are. Many thanks.
  4. [h=2]Wondering if anyone can help with this, I qualified in 2004 with BSc (Adult Nursing) to the best of my recollection I don't recall anything as in depth as required in Criterion 8 below: What you need to know about Criterion 8[/h]The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia requires documentary evidence of substantial study and assessment in pharmacology, including the following: pharmacokinetics pharmacodynamics medication administration (including calculations), and quality use of medicines. If, as I suspect, that any transcript from my Alma mater is not going to provide satisfactory supporting evidence. Is there any kind of Uni course or training that can be undertaken, and where. NMBA don't seem very forth coming with how to meet Criterion 8. Many thanks, Paul

  7. Hello I am a 26 year old woman from Surrey, currently in my 2nd of 3years of Nurse Traning: hoping to qualify in July 2012. I would like to make the move to Perth as soon as possible after that. My question is: When is the best time to start searching for jobs in Perth and do hospitals Down Under employ newly qualified British Nurses? One last question, do the hospitals have Nursing Accomodation like British ones do? Thank you for reading. Kind Regards Nic x
