Tasmania, Australia’s island state, needs more qualified professional nursing staff to work in our health care system.

Nurses in Australia work in a profession that is respected and valued by the community. Our nurses are well-rewarded with salaries in the top 20% of all workers in Australia. Nurses in Tasmania also benefit from the island’s outstanding lifestyle – Tasmania is a safe and welcoming place to live and work, with plenty of opportunities to achieve a satisfying and enjoyable work-life balance.

The Tasmanian climate is pleasant and temperate, with four distinct seasons. It’s never too hot or too cold. The cities are people-sized, big enough to offer a wide range of cultural, social and entertainment opportunities, but not so large that travel distances are unmanageable. The environment is pristine and unpolluted and the island is famous for its fresh produce, seafood and cool-climate wines.

All in all, it’s a great place to live and work.

The Tasmanian health care network offers many opportunities for qualified professional nurses to find satisfying and rewarding employment. International RNs currently working in mainland capitals may be able to move to Tasmania and qualify for permanent Australian residence under the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme.

The RSMS is an Australian Government program that aims to assist regional areas of the country, including Tasmania, attract skilled workers by offering a permanent Australian residence visa to employees sponsored by an approved regional employer.

“It’s important to make the process as smooth as possible for both the candidates and local employers,” Mr Sampson says. “Divergence offers a seamless, end-to-end migration service that is simple, timely and cost-effective for all involved.”
