    yes i agree, it's difficult to understand australian native speakers. how i wish the examiner for speaking is not aussy.

    good luck richardrn, wherever you decide you want to go, either Australia or Canada, you'll never go wrong. They aren't the two "most livable" countries on Earth for nothing. Different lifestyle, different climate, a lot of opportunities.

    And oh, just for future reference, Canada has provinces, not states. And it's Aussie, not aussy. I just don't want you to get in trouble for referring to them in a wrong way.

    Cheers, mate.

    im a little bit envious to both of you. dikonaalam and circumpunct. you both are successful abroad. my problem in australia is that it requires 7 in all bands in IELTS which is difficult. im taking the exam on nov. 9, im trying my best to achieve as high as possible. but if ever i get lower than that, i can take the path that leads to canada. quebec recently opened its door to skilled workers with emphasis on nurses and it's also a great opportunity. circumpunct, what can you say about quebec? is it a good place to live? im asking bec. it's separated from the rest of the states.

    Hello Sir, I must say dikonaalam is right don’t let IELTS dictate where you go if you really prefer Australia. If your unlucky enough to have a band score of 7 then take another exam until you succeed, those people who never say no and always fight are those people you dream of becoming to be. Am not knowledgeable about Quebec’s program compared with Manitoba. Quebec is a good place to be same with Australia the thing is, I heard you need to have a background of French language (anyway Tesda is offering an online certification for that). By the way why did you choose Quebec, any relatives there?

    hehe. thanks for correcting me dikonaalam. i'm still practicing speaking and writing. anyway, i love both countries. i agree with both of you not to take ielts unless i am decided on which country to live. but the real problem is whether i can attain the required score in australia. i am aware its hard. if both country can offer good future, then i can go either of the two. 18k salary here in the philippines cannot sustain our basic needs. i have to go overseas for me to earn more.

    circumpunct, other provinces in canada closed its door to nurses, while quebec, on the other hand, welcomed them by increasing its point. no need to have french language skill in filing application. however, as soon as i am decided to pursue quebec, i will have a formal education on french language to be competitive in finding job there.

    are you sure about Quebec not requiring a French exam to apply? The last time I checked they require it.

    I was being sarcastic when I said I had to learn Australian English. And no, it's not that they speak faster, it's more of their accent. And if you're not used to Australian slang (which I should say there's a lot), then it's really difficult to understand. And they have names for everything. And they shorten the words (example, Afternoon is Arvo, Barbecue is barbie).

    But in terms of permanent residency application, given that a nurse meets all the qualification, Australia is easier. I got mine within 2 months. And yes, I get free health care, I have access to the pension system, and my Master's degree is subsidised. ;)

    Hi dikonaalam, if i may ask, which state in Oz are you in? How are you finding Master of Nursing so far? May clinical practice din ba? Thanks

    I live in NSW. I have not started my master's. I'm for the Autumn 2014 intake. Clinical practice within the master's? Depends on what specialisation you're getting into. There's a Master in Clinical Nursing, Master in Nurse (general, admin, etc).

    if you have an AHPRA registration, you DON'T need to submit an IELTS test result. But for immigration, such as SC189, then you only need to submit a GT version.

    Hello po. Super informative po ang forum na ito. I'm just wondering if may demand ba sa AU for Dialysis Nurse? Currently, 1 yr na po kasi ako as dialysis nurse and 3 yrs naman sa 25 bed Polymedical clinic.

    hi! your post is so comprehensive, thank you. er, do you have any idea if it is possible (rather almost the same process) for me to start applying for reg in APHRA while i am here in KSA? i've been working here for almost 3yrs and would wan to cross country soon. i DLed the form for "inter'l qualified nurses..." and found a quite extensive requirements.

    any nurses here who is working or have worked here in the kingdom and have tried applying for aphra? any advice will be very great :)

    thank you!

    thank you!

    It's possible to apply from anywhere in the world. I was in the US when I applied. But then again, I had all the necessary requirements, like TOR, Diploma, IELTS, etc. Plus I am not registered in the Philippines so I didn't have to worry about PRC card or licence verification. Plus, my school has an online service for TOR, Diploma, etc, so they just mailed the documents to me.

    The possibility, thus, depends on your circumstances, your ability to collect the documents from PRC and your college in the Philippines (through relatives, etc). Also, be mindful of your contract there in KSA because AHPRA imposes a time frame for you to do the bridging program. Example, they gave you until June 2014 to complete the process and your contract there won't end until December 2014, then you'd be in trouble. So I suggest you apply at least 6 months on average before your contract expires.

    Good luck.

    I suggest you take your IELTS first and get 7.0 on all subtest.

    AHPRA is the Australian counterpart of PRC. It handles the registration and regulation of nurses and other health professionals. Once you have your IELTS, go to AHPRA website and download the application form for overseas nurses. You then have to mail this to any AHPRA office along with the required documents (TOR, Diploma, ID's, etc)

    Thanks mr. Dikonaalam! :) I believe I have to take the academic ielts right? Thank you :-)
