A migration agent advised them they would not be granted an Australian working visa. They didn’t have much money in the bank. If they couldn’t work they wouldn’t last long.

Growing work opportunities for nurses in regional and remote parts of Australia

overseasnurses

 

Across many locations in Australia, especially in regional and remote areas, hospitals and other healthcare providers are recruiting well-qualified, experienced overseas nurses to fill vacancies they cannot fill with the local workforce.

Not only is Australia’s total population ageing, leading to a greater need for nursing services, but the nursing profession itself is also ageing. Many of the 300,000 nurses currently working in Australian hospitals are in their fifties, and moving towards retirement over the next decade. Without major changes to policy settings to boost retention and productivity, by 2025 the shortage of nurses across the nation will total 109,000, according to Health Workforce Australia.


This suggests that, in the medium to longer term, there will be opportunities in Australia for both locally and internationally trained nurses. The 457 scheme is designed to address only short-to medium-term skill shortages. The Department of Immigration and Border Protection reports that 10.9 per cent of the 457 visas granted in 2012–13 were in the Health Care and Social Assistance sector.
