Why is Australia the preferred destination for Nursing students?

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

High demands for qualified nurses and related healthcare services, as reflected in Skilled Occupations List, is one of the driving factors for its popularity. Relevant educational background, work experiences maybe counted towards application of Permanent Residency.

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 practise methods in their field; and make them aware of their conduct and legal responsibilities in the practise 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.
