Had I known what I know now when I was first considering studying nursing in Australia, I would have thrown the idea out the window without a doubt. Had I known back then that my former trade has been on the Migration Skilled Occupation List for years, I would have immigrated to Australia using my former trade AS A PERMANENT RESIDENT. Then, I would have enrolled in nursing school as a permanent resident and had equal opportunities regarding post-registration employment. AND PAID MUCH LESS TUITION!
The SWE Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to women admitted to accredited baccalaureate or graduate programs in preparation for careers in engineering, engineering technology and computer science. There are several SWE-approved programs at four universities. Applicants complete one application and are considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible. Returning students have scholarships available on the website also. Also available at the website is a section for local SWE-related scholarships that may be applied to.
Through the generosity of corporate and individual donors, the APS has been able to offer the APS Scholarship for Minority Undergraduate Physics Majors (formerly known as the Corporate-Sponsored Scholarship for Minority Undergraduate Students Who Major in Physics). This program, which began in 1980, has graduated students who have received their PhD’s in physics and are now working as physics faculty members in universities, as well as research scientists at corporations and national labs. Some past scholars have also become high school physics teachers.
My name is Tracey.I am 56 years old.I am a LPN who work part time. I have 5 kids, 3 of which I live with. I am registered in a program where I can achieve my RN while studying at home. Its going to take a lot of work and hard study. Due to everyday life struggles I am barely able to monthly pay my tuition, but I am currently unable to pay for my prereqs and my nursing exams..I will be looking for a near home 1-2 extra shifts a week but the problem is most of the nursing homes want you to work weekends..I currently am not able to commit to that kind of schedule because at my main job I work every weekend so it is difficult. I am requesting some assistance so that I can reach and achieve my goals…thank you.

Is there a new update to this story? It’s been years. I’m still wondering what the big picture is like with the new grad situation. I too didn’t get a new grad (I finished my BSN with an Australian uni; oh how I wish every graduate would have an opportunity for new grad; one year of acute experience is all we need after all, they don’t even have to employ us after one year of new grad … just need that ONE YEAR).
I was officially an RN December 2012. After three years of trying to apply in hospitals and after countless rejections (they want someone with experience) I am ready to give up. Career change soon, I just need to finish a VET course and hopefully it will lead to fulltime employment. Chasing nursing dreams – given it three years … at least I tried. It’s time to give up on it.
After all the hard work and sacrifice I made to study abroad, imagine my utter disappointment when I found out five months before graduation that NSW Health was prioritising (ie. only accepting) local nursing students for their new grad programs. I was a part-time student and when I started my studies, NSW Health did not have such clause in effect.
I love my current job as an AIN, but the reason I did EN in the first place was to help people and make a difference… this disappointing fact is that I am currently not making any headway in progressing further in my EN and am desperate to know if I can multi-apply for graduate EN programs throughout Australia?
Hi, I am currently an EN working in a hospital in Perth WA as an AIN for the last 4 years (2 years as an unemployed graduate with no grad program to prove I have experience working within a health system). I finished my EN studies end of 2014 and since then only successfully got through to the interview stage 3 times out 7 with no feedback to tell me what I have done wrong…
I’m currently an EN working within aged care and in my final year of RN studies. I’ve been searching online for job opportunities for grads. Multiple results have come up even stating that there are over 100 vacancies available for graduate nurses, but when looking into the details of these ads most of them stated at least 2 or 3 years post graduate experience were required. This is ridiculous and disappointing! Adding to the disappointment, I have done 3 applications for postgrad programs and were all unsuccessful!
ACM-W, with funding from Wipro Technologies, provides support for women undergraduate and graduate students in Computer Science and related programs who wish to attend research conferences. Exposure to the CS research world can be an important factor in encouraging a student to continue on to the next level (Undergraduate to Graduate, Masters to PhD, PhD to an industry or academic position). The student does not have to present a paper at the conference she attends.
Applicants must be undertaking a business and/or business-related program at an accredited university/college/institute. They must be enrolled in at least the second year of an undergraduate program through the final year of a master’s program at the time the application is submitted (applicants must still be attending school to receive this award). They must have achieved an outstanding academic record during their academic studies, including business-related subjects. They must have demonstrated initiative, ambition and commitment to pursuing a career in business. They must be living or studying in a Zonta region/district. Application requirements are included with the online application.
