"I love the people in Rural and Remote Nursing, everyone is lovely and they invite you out to local events. When I worked on the Gold Coast, I loved the lifestyle, warmth and of course the beaches. I think you should just do it - don't wait any longer. I wanted to do it for about 4 years and I wish I had done it sooner."

Rachel Bangs, New Zealand - Acute


"I love the flexible working hours, especially in winter - you can pick shifts up because of the increase. On my time off I got to travel to Fraser Island with a back packing group of 20-30 people for a weekend. We did 4 wheel driving with 8 people in each car – the driving was really fun. Overall, It’s just a much better lifestyle, people are laid back and very polite – it must be the weather."

Iona Matheson, UK - ICU


"DO IT - you won’t regret it! Although it may seem like a lot to organise and prepare before moving to Australia, I can assure you it is worth every penny, tear and handbag left at home!"

Rachel Coney, Northern Ireland - Mental Health


"Before the move, it was really helpful having the office in London and speaking to someone in the same time zone. Since being here, I have really enjoyed the experience, it’s different to previous roles and it’s nice to have the flexibility of working when I want to work."

Toby Clark, UK - Mental Health Nurse
