Aged care

Nowadays Australia is one of the nations with the highest presence of young people thanks to the arrival of international students. In fact, the average age of the population is very low, but in the future this data is going to change. Currently there are 2,800 nursing homes in Australia which receive about 100, 000 people, and it is expected that in the future this number will rise to 250,000. For this reason there will be more an**d more demand for nurses**, medical assistants and specialists to work in nursing homes, hospitals and institutes. For years the Australia Government has wanted to make the position of “Aged Care” among the wanted professions in Australia.

Italians have an advantage over the other foreigners: many facilities are looking for Italian medical employees, and thanks to the strong migration of Italians in the past it is really easy to find them. At the moment, an Aged Care course could be interesting for those who are already nurses and want to specialize or to become medical assistants: the certificate 3 is one of the most appreciated by employers in Australia.
