Hello and welcome,

I appreciate your concern,

Tuberculosis is a contagious infection,you are currently under treatment,which means you still have got the infection,so in my opinion, it's going to be troublesome for you to be hired as a nurse in Australia.Most of the developed countries have strict policies even for immigration of people with Tuberculosis.


I hope this is helpful,

Wishing you the best of health.
