Are you planning to apply for nursing jobs in Melbourne during your working holiday?
You’d be glad to know that you have options – plenty of them, in fact. With all the large and small healthcare facilities all over Australia, you don’t need to limit your options to nursing in Melbourne alone. Before you consider yourself lucky, however, you should check your eligibility. After all, not everyone can be approved for a Working Holiday Visa. Where you completed your training as a nurse would be taken into consideration as well for those hoping to nurse in Australia. It will dictate if you will be accepted onto the nursing board register in Australia.
If you completed your nursing training outside Australia, if your initial training as a nurse or undergraduate degree was undertaken in Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, Republic of South Africa, Singapore, the Netherlands (HBO programs), the United Kingdom, and the United States of America, then there is a good chance that you will be qualified for a direct entry onto the Australian board register
To qualify for any of the nursing jobs Melbourne offers, or anywhere else in Australia, you should prove that your proficiency in the use of the English language, whether writing, speaking, listening, and reading, meets the Australian standards. After all, you are expected to communicate competently, properly and safely with colleagues, other health professionals, and, most importantly patients and their families. This is why you need to take an English test as one of your eligibility requirements. But there are exceptions, and you might just get lucky.Find out more about IELTS According to the revised Nursing and Midwifery Board registration standard on English language skills, as of 29 November 2011:
Under the Trans Tasman Mutual Recognition Act, 1997 (Commonwealth), enrolled and registered nurses and midwives who hold a current authority to practice in New Zealand may apply for the Australian nursing boards’ recognition. This means direct entry onto the board register for nursing. The same act also exempts registered nurses and midwives from taking an English test and submitting proof of their proficiency. The language test is excluded from the Modified (Form A) assessments. Refer to the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council on www.anmc.org.au for more information.
