The Federal Government has appointed an expert panel to review current regulations on Australian employers accessing skilled labour from offshore, including nurses and midwives.
The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation will be making a submission to the panel, focusing in particular on the high numbers of new nursing and midwifery graduates who have been finding it difficult to get work.
The ANMF wants to hear from recent graduates about their experiences.
- Take a survey about your experience of finding work to contribute to the ANMF submission.
- Tell your story.
Some employers are calling the current regulations “red tape”and asking for deregulation in order to bring in large numbers of overseas workers – ignoring grad nurses and midwives.
The ANMF believes that the current large number of grad nurses and midwives who are struggling to get work must be employed first, before nurses and midwives from overseas.
