A nursing career overseas can certainly be a ticket to a world of wonderful opportunities, and an exciting and rewarding life. So if this is what sounds right for you, where can you get started?
MWT Education Consultancy offers you career counselling to help you understand where you would like to reach. We help you define your goals, and chart out a path to reach you there! Get an in-depth understanding of study courses available to further your learning, potential career options, visa requirements and so on. You may also wish to explore the possibility of upgrading your current qualification to a bachelors or masters degree in nursing.
Protocol and practices vary from country to country, and to be able to practice abroad you may have to enrol in adaptation programs or bridging programs that can help to smoothen your work transition. For instance, overseas qualified nurses need to complete the IRON course for nurses (IRON stands for Initial Registration for Overseas Nurses) to demonstrate their skills and competence to practice in Australia. If you are in need of coaching to excel in international standardized tests like the IELTS and OET, the team at MWT Education Consultancy will help you get started.
