Nursing in Australia

While sending out 'Calls for Nurses Stories," via the Internet I 'met' the nicest woman - Charmaine Hernadez. Charmaine is originally from the Philippines, now an Australian citizen helping nurses from the Philippines, and other countries, to get their licenses to work in health care.

Charmaine shared with me that many nurses immigrate to the USA to find work, then find challenges obtaining a nursing license or a 'green card' to allow them to work. Not so in Australia. I would like to help Charmaine 'spread the word,' so I'm posting an excerpt from her note to me in hopes that YOU too will help 'spread the word."

From Charmaine - "We want to spread the word out there that you don't have to go to another country and work illegally. Unlike the US education system that governs Intl Students, Australia offers International Students not only their study rights, but LEGAL working rights for them and their dependents to enter the country.Applying for permanent residency and citizenship processing is quicker or less time compared to the US."
