Work restrictions waived for international nursing students
Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, announced drastic measures to overcome healthcare staff shortage in hospitals.
Work restrictions would be lifted on some 20,000 international nursing students currently studying in Australia. They are going to be available to support the health effort right across the country, as directed by Australian health officials. Australia is not importing nurses into the country. This technically means that they will have unlimited work rights instead of 40 hour fortnightly work limitation.
