This is massive news, as it provides a pathway to apply for an Australia visa for Enrolled Nursing graduates, not just from NSW, but from all around Australia.

Some states and territories have criteria which only allows there own graduates (SA) Enrolled Nurses currently working as an Enrolled Nurser in their state (Qld) to apply for sponsorship.

You will want to get in quick, as NSW only has a limited number of state sponsorships per calendar year.  For the year ending 30 June 2015, the number is 4000 sponsorships to cover all occupations.
