Australia’s prime Minister Scott Morrison is expected to announce a reboot of Australia’s immigration program that will use temporary visas to fill roles in professions like nursing and aged care.
Once migration resumes, it will be adjusted to meet the needs in areas of burgeoning demand such as nursing and aged care, where not enough local workers can be found.
Interestingly, the most recent skills shortage report from the federal government showed there was no shortage of nurses prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, but obviously, that is not the case now.
The supply of nurses has increased in recent years, with nursing graduate numbers and nurse registrations at historically high levels.
