Opportunities. Lifestyle. TRAVEL? 

Experience a world of new things while staying on track in your career with a working holiday. You can be a nurse by day and stargaze in the outback by night. Or how about taking a road trip by day and nursing by night? As an agency nurse, you get to decide.

Meet new people. Try new things. And live your best nursing life down under. 

We have branches across the country so you can really make the most of your time here. Work in different cities at leading facilities with support from Australia’s most trusted nursing agency. 

And guess what? There's a visa designed just for you - called the Working Holiday Visa (WHV) - that could be your ticket to the experience of a lifetime. 

Let's look at this visa in a bit more detail.

Working Holiday Visa (subclass 417)

If you've completed your nursing qualification and have at least a year's experience under your belt the Working Holiday Visa (subclass 417) could be your best option.  

Key conditions for this visa include:

  • It allows you to travel and work in Australia for up to 12 months.
  • You must be aged 18 to 35 (UK & Irish citizens) and have a return ticket or sufficient funds for a return ticket.
  • You must apply online from outside Australia.
  • You can also study while you are in Australia for a set period.
  • You can't enter the country accompanied by dependent children.
