Australia has had to recruit overseas trained nurses to meet ever-increasing workforce demands, in mental health. The aim of this study was to explore the lived experiences of overseas trained nurses from Kerala and working in mental health in Australia. The participants were overseas trained nurses from Kerala, India, working in mental health in Australia. The experiences of the overseas trained nurses highlight the specific unique challenges and hurdles that migrant nurses tackle with during the transition period and in their ongoing lives in Australia. Findings of this study indicate the need for ongoing educational and clinical support for overseas nurses.
