Permanent Full Time Registered Nurse

Personal Summary

I am a registered nurse coming from the Philippines and have a total of 6 years and 2 months clinical experience acting as a senior charge nurse in the Emergency Care, Neurocritical Care, Surgical Intensive Care, and Acute Stroke Unit, which includes my experience as a nurse volunteer. The clinical exposure that I obtained helped me to possess a clinical eye, confidence and competence to work as a nurse in order to provide safe and high quality care to my patients.

I am currently undergoing the Initial Registration for Overseas Nurses (IRON) programme at the Mount Beauty Hospital Acute ward which will conclude on May 18, 2017. Afterwards, I will also be processing my AHPRA registration.

My current visa subclass is 600, which indicates multiple entries. In order for me to work in Australia, I would require a full time job and possibly a sponsorship for a working visa. I would be forever grateful and in debt, if you consider me for a job vacancy. If you require any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am more than willing to undergo a national police check prior to employment if required.
