What is the initial step for an inexperienced nurse from the Philippines to apply as a nurse in australia?

(from Yahoo answers)

I am a 23 year old Registered Nurse with no clinical experience and I am very much interested to migrate to Australia. But since I have no experience after my nursing registration in the Philippines I don't know what my next step would be. I emailed every agency and State boards but I'm not quite sure which step to take. I know it will be a lot more difficult for me because I lack in clinical experience. Any information would be highly regarded...thank you.

If you do not have any experience, you need to take a nursing course to get the registration in Australia. Then, you need to undertake 'Graduate Nurse Program' for your first year.

You will get some ideas if you visit the site below.


Readers responded  To gain a visa you need the experience. That is the first step not getting a job. Getting permission to come an live/work.

Readers responded  My recommendation is to gain some clinical experience before you go. You will have a much better chance finding employment that way, especially coming from another country.

I know that you need to be Registered to work in Australia as a Nurse, and each state is different. Some nurses migrate to Australia and get their experience as an Assistant In Nursing (AIN) until their registration comes through, and to gain some clinical experience. Again, it is better if you get some clinical experience before you migrate to Australia.

Once you have some experience, you may find these websites useful to help you to find a job in Australia. Sponsorship Australia advertises jobs specifically for overseas nationals, and tends to have a steady flow of medical positions.
