Joining a nurse agency in Australia is a great decision to make if you want to advance your medical career with opportunities to earn more: did you know that Australia delivers some of the best pay rates in the world for qualified nurses?
In addition, nurses in Australia enjoy a work-life balance that many nurses abroad dream of: particularly through a nursing agency, you can choose to work as many or as little hours as you like.
So where should you start? Here’s how to choose a nursing agency in Australia.
Whether you are a fresh graduate or a seasoned pro, the best way to get exposed to great opportunities (and to make the process easier – more on that below!) is to register with a nursing agency.
Nursing agencies like Australian Nursing Agency (ANA) make it easy for nurses just like you to be matched with the right nursing jobs.
But not all nursing agencies are equal. Below are some of the factors you must consider when it comes to selecting the right nursing agency.
One of the most sought-after benefits of agency work is flexibility. Will your chosen agency accommodate your preferred working hours and/or roster?
A good agency understands that nurses want the freedom to work as much or as little as they like. This is even more pertinent for travelling and overseas nurses, who want to treat their time in Australia as a holiday as much as a work opportunity.
It doesn’t hurt to take a few moments and conduct some simple research on your chosen agency.
We work closely with health and medical facilities throughout Melbourne (and indeed Australia); they come to us, requesting our nurses to fill voids in hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and other facilities.
ANA attends various events and seminars throughout the year, meeting nurses just like you, offering information and insight into the Australian nursing industry.
We’re also partnered with The Down Under Centre, an agency based in the UK helping people migrate to Australia for work or working holidays.
ANA is one of Australia’s most enviable nursing agencies, operating for success from day one (which was back in 2000!)
Of course for some, pay rates are not the be all and end all, but hey – there’s no denying good pay rates are important! We ensure nurses feel valued and thanked at all times during their work by rewarding them with superb pay rates, in fact, some of the best in the country.
We understand that many travelling nurses want the opportunity to discover a great new land while earning exceptional pay rates to supplement their time here.
That’s why we pride ourselves on being a nursing agency that just “gets” our nurses: we know you want to play just as hard as you work, and in such a wonderful country like Australia, opportunities for adventure and travel are bountiful.
A good nursing agency is with you every step of the way, offering real help when it comes to somewhat confusing tasks like visa applications and other registrations. ANA lives by the simple mantra, “Relax – if you want to nurse in Australia, we know how to get you there.”
