eBook One – Nursing in Australia: A Guide to Working and Living as a Nurse Down Under
This eBook gives a step-by-step guide taking you through the processes you need to go through to get your registration, your visa and a job, and has tips on relocating down under and settling in Australia. It’s user friendly and is laid out in three parts (see below). An invaluable guide for overseas nurses, midwives and international nursing students wanting to understand the easy way to work, study and live in Australia.
Part One includes the preparation you need to do, how much it will cost, where to live, visas, who are the employers, finding the right job and interviewing and CV writing tips (from an HR expert). This part also includes a list of all the Australian universities, private and public hospitals, health care recruitment companies and nursing agencies and is packed with lots of useful numbers, links and contact details. Never before has all of this information been available in one place.
Part Two is a comprehensive section on nursing in Australia, containing valuable information about the Australian health service and what to expect from it. This part looks at the different types of nursing roles, what you’ll be expected to do, and the skills you’ll be expected to have, as well as Australian nursing organisations and ‘the system’, its terminology and jargon, grading and pay structures and loads of technical information from drug calculation checklists to National Inpatient Medication Chart. You name it, it’s in here. Again, this part includes a wealth of useful numbers, links and contact details that normally take hours to get access to.
Part Three contains pages and pages of general information on living in Australia and gives you the information you most need when you arrive, including useful ‘to do’ checklists, getting your accommodation and banking sorted out, and how to go about getting everything from a dentist to a driving licence.
Why not combine work and travel and enjoy the time you spend at work as much as the time you spend out of it? Why not fund your travels and be paid better than most of the tourists around you? Your nursing skills mean that you don’t have to pick fruit to fund your adventure, and you’ll get paid a lot more.
So take a working holiday or accept a different role in another country, get a different experience and probably give your career a boost at the same time, because working abroad is a great way of showing your adaptability, flexibility and ability to cope with change, to future employers. In short, your career will be fast-tracked by the experience. Working in another country is also the best way to immerse yourself in the local lifestyle and culture – something you can’t ever fully achieve as a tourist.
eBook Two – Nursing in the Australian Health Service
This eBook (Part Two of the first eBook, plus more) has comprehensive sections on nursing in Australia, written from a nurse’s perspective, containing valuable information about the Australian health service and what to expect. The outline of Part Two (above) explains why this standalone eBook is an invaluable guide for nurses and midwives, new graduates nurses and transitional nurses, international nursing students (including Australian nursing students) looking to familiarise themselves with the Australian health care system.
