There are so many. As a nurse, look forward to excellent pay, shorter shifts, lower patient ratios and all the lifestyle benefits of living in the beautiful land of Oz. Warm weather, endless beaches, stunning bushland...... and great coffee!!
Medicare is Australia's public health insurance scheme, similar to the NHS in the UK. However not all medical treatments in Australia are free, and only citizens of the UK and countries with a Reciprocal Health Care Agreement (RHCA) are entitled to Medicare through the Commonwealth.
A unique Aussie term, you'll likely hear 'super' mentioned a lot by colleagues, your employer and new friends. Super is short for superannuation, part of your salary that's put aside and saved whilst you work. Basically a pension. In Australia it's compulsory for employers to make super contributions on behalf of their qualifying employees.
How much will I get paid?
Salaries in Australia are dependent upon a number of factors including the state that you work in, how experienced you are and if you are in a permanent position or casual (agency). However compared to the UK or Ireland our nurses always tell us just how good the pay is in Australia!!

What visa should I get?
There may be a number of visas you can apply for. The most common visas our nurses enter Australia on are Temporary Residence Visas. These include the Working Holiday Visa (WHV) or Temporary Skills Shortage (TSS) visa.

What is AHPRA?
