Australia continues to experience a serious shortage of nurses across many specialties, which is good news for international nurses seeking opportunities here.

Nursing was named the fastest-growing job in Queensland last month and was also one of the top jobs listed on the Australian National Skill shortage list.

Searches for nurse jobs saw a 627.4% growth on Indeed – one of the largest trends they identified and a promising sign for employers and recruiters to see jobseeker interest growing so rapidly in this understaffed field.

Nursing in Australia

Along with a high quality of life, Australia has stunning areas to explore around the country, beautiful weather and a multicultural society that attracts a diverse array of nationalities and cultures.

HealthX is perfectly positioned to assist international nurses with their move over to Australia through our Long Term Secondment Program, by not only assisting with the job hunt but also the whole visa process.

We can be the employer as well as the sponsor for nurses wanting to work in Australia, and generally see a turnaround time with visa processing of 10 to 14 days thanks to priority processing with our experienced migration agents.

Our Secondment Program ensures international nurses have a two-year contract, with many of our nurses choosing to stay on with the provider following the two years.

We also offer assistance on the following:

  • Meet and greet service at the airport through our Soft Landing Program
  • Assistance with finding accommodation and schools
  • Assistance in setting up bank accounts, Tax File Numbers, insurance etc.
  • Assistance with your professional registration
