    Hi dikonaalam,

    Thanks for answering my question. :)

    So you were under work visa in the US?

    I am here in Melbourne (PR - Subclass 189 dependent) and have started applying to AHPRA. Most likely they will ask me to take a bridging course, as my experience were all in Medicine.

    I also have a petition in the US, but like you, I could not wait any longer. :)

    EverAfter,

    yes I was under H1B.

    Mr. @dikonaalam, would like to ask po, about the new module assessment of AHPRA for nurse applicants, effective feb 2014. What do you think about it? Which is better the old one or new assessment? Would you advice filipino RN to seek help from IHNA? its kind of expensive. Or just follow AHPRAs program? I was trying to back read your old post about consulting agencies offering study/work program scheme that charged too much! And yet they cannot provide working visa through that program. And you said that, we can do it ourselves by not spending too much compared to consulting agencies' fees.
    May i ask, if you are a division 1 nurse? Most filipino RN chose division 1 right? Thank you po :D
  • dikonaalamdikonaalam the prince of nursing PExer
    Division 1 is equivalent to Registered Nurse, so that should be your goal. Yes I am a registered nurse. I'd be very honest, I don't know much about the new assessment and I don't know anything about the bridging program since I did not have to attend one.

    INHA is a bridging program provider.

    AHPRA recently changed the criteria for assessment, but according to their website you only need at least 3 months work experience out of the last 5 years. Also, you need to provide a CV stating your work experience and also explaining gaps between employment. So while you are out of practice, yo should outline what were you doing. Then,I believe you need to also provide evidence of continuing professional development (CPD) hours, like CPR, ACLS, lecture training, etc.

    I'd be very honest, it is very difficult to find a nursing sponsorship these days especially for those without a recent nursing experience. If you pass your IELTS and have finished the bridging program, that only means you will be registered as a nurse. It doesn't entitle you to any work rights. That means, depending on the visa you use for the bridging program, you have to exit Australia.

    Now for you to stay legally in Australia, you either have to have a work visa (which as I've said, very difficult to get now), or be on a student visa. Whilst on student visa, you have to study full time again and you can only work for 20 hours per week, which really isn't enough for you to survive. This route is very very expensive and has a very high degree of uncertainty towards gaining residency.

    When you said "any job", does that mean any job other than nursing? I doubt it. Unless you also have education/training to do that job, like welding, accounting, etc. The Australian government recently tightened the process for work visa nomination and sponsorship so it is unlikely that you will be granted a work visa outside your profession.

    You can try applying to nursing homes as an RN. There are nursing homes that sponsor RN's.

    If you have been out of nursing practice for more than 5 years, then you have to do an approved program by the nursing board. This is different from the bridging program. You may be asked to undergo a longer program, such as the 1-2 years conversion program or repeat the whole nursing program here in Australia. This route is very expensive.

    Alternatively, if your Philippine licence is still active, you may want to try and see if you can get a nursing job there. The nursing board only requires 3 months out of 5 years of recent experience. The problem is, without substantial nursing experience, it is unlikely that you will find a sponsor/job.

    So while it is possible for you to still pursue your Australian dream, you may have to think and rethink before you actually undergo the lengthy and often expensive process. Calculate the risks involved.
