    Hey everybody (:

    I'm not quite sure if I'm posting this in the right place so apologies in advance! I was just looking for anybody in a similar position as myself. I am a final year nursing student, hoping to qualify in August this year. I'm really keen on working abroad, particularly Australia and would be super, super happy if I could find someone to share information with!

    Thanks guys x

    Someone I know went straight out there on qualifying, but the vast majority of people who go overseas get a couple of years experience under their belts first. Those first few months as a newly qualified nurse are pretty scary, imagine adding moving to a whole new country into the mix there too.

    The rcn congress (being held next month in Liverpool) will have some Australian recruiters there who can advice you on the application process and when you can apply. It is free so if you can attend you would definitely get your questions answered by the people who actually know the process

    Yeah, I've heard that experience is preferred and I can only imagine how scary it will be! It's good to know the options though and that it is do-able straight from registration. Do you happen to know the date of the RCN conference in Liverpool? Also, does anybody know of any other ways of contacting somebody within the RCN who would be able to answer my questions?
    Thanks guys, you've been brilliant already. I wasn't even expecting a reply! (: x

    I can't think of the exact dates off the top of my head, around the 24th i think but it spans a few days, it should be easy enough to find on google
