Why is Australia the preferred destination for Nursing students?

Australia has always taken pride in providing high quality education. Australian Nursing Programs have been meticulously developed to impart theoretical knowledge and hone practical skills required in delivering excellent healthcare services.

The Philippines is the largest exporter of nurses worldwide. The caring and compassionate nature of Filipino nurses coupled with their language skills make them highly sought after globally. However, in most instances their career opportunities are limited by the qualifications gained locally. An Australian nursing qualification with its international recognition can open up countless doors for these individuals.

Another appealing reason for practicing nurses to consider Australia is the Bridging Program for Nurses or popularly known as IRON (Initial Registration for Overseas Nurses). Overseas nurses coming from different backgrounds and practice are prepared thoroughly to be integrated into the Australian workforce. It strengthens their existing knowledge and skills; orient them to best practice methods in their field; and make them aware of their conduct and legal responsibilities in the practice of their profession in Australia.

Also as the third most preferred destination for international students, the country continues to attract international students and tourists alike because of the culture, the sceneries, the laid back atmosphere and the unique flora and fauna and the thousand and one reasons why Australia is the place to be.

It is good to note that most international students can work for up to forty (40) hours every two weeks during semester and unrestricted hours during any scheduled course break and public holidays.
