OET, the English language test for healthcare professionals, has produced a comprehensive guide for overseas-trained nurses and midwives seeking to live and work in Australia. The guide is freely available for you to share with any of your students who may find it useful.
Endorsed by the Migration Institute of Australia, the 22-page publication is titled Live and Work in Australia as an overseas-trained nurse: A guide to registration, immigration and settlement. It covers the following topics in-depth and in plain English for the non-native speaker:
- Key organisations they will come across
- Nursing registration standards and qualification criteria
- Applying for registration
- Applying for migration
- Looking for work
- Getting settled.
The guide also includes links to useful information, from employment and real estate sites to migration agents and the Australian Tax Office.
You can download the guide for free from the OET Website and share it with students or even order printed copies to have available at the end of classes. Printed copies will be sent directly to your nominated address within three weeks of you placing your order.
