pinayluv2travel: thanks for the all the info you've posted here, really helpful. btw you said that you sought an agency's help from there? i just wanna know if you are familiar with shivsans limited/ nurses2asutralia because there is someone who has been in contact with me and i am actually about to pay 1,500AUD for the registration and for my application to move forward. their services include visa processing and assistance in everything such as looking for accommodation and other things. i know a lot would say that an agency is not needed but i prefer to have someone look after my files and give me feedback and process my documents for me. would you know is this agency legit? i just fear na baka mamaya scam to eh. but the person calling me is really from AU. uso din ba diyan ang mga fake agencies?
any input on this will be greatly appreciated. thanks so much! god bless you more.

I came here via student visa sponsored by a nursing agency here. I took the pre-registration course for overseas nurses for 3 months. Then I got my registration and my nursing agency shifted my visa to temporary working for 2 years. Then I applied for Permanent residency before I finish my contract with them. Now I am working in a State hospital. I am not sure if there is still a nursing agency here in australia that is willing to sponsor overseas nurses. Pero I won't recommend this. Kasi as agency nurse, you will work in any hospital that they will ask you to work. Mahirap. You better study on your own then hanap ka ng mag iisponsor na hospital. Hospitals here do sponsor overseas nurses.
Yes, i have a hospital experience before coming here kasi requirement sya. At least 2 years experience. Noon ito hindi ko lang alam ngayon. Paiba iba kasi rules and regulations. What i heard nga ngayon eh di na nirerequire ang IELTS ng AHPRA as long na may proof na our method of teaching is english eh okay na yun. IELTS can be really difficult dahil sa required score na kailangan. Just check AHPRA and email them.
Syanga ***, be careful sa mga agency dyan sa atin na nagsasabi na they recruit nurses for australia. Australia never recruit nurses from phils. to work kaagad. You really need to study. May na meet ako dito na nag aaral ng Enrolled nurse kahit nurse na dyan sa atin. Kasi daw ni recruit daw sila ng agency dyan sa atin pero pagdating dito eh *** raw sumalubong sa kanila. Na illegal recruiter sila. Buti na lang at may kamag anak sya dito. Nag aaral sya ng Enrolled nurse dito nung ma meet ko kasi nag clinical sa ward ko. Dito kasi dalawang klase ang nurse. Division 1 or Registered Nurse na tulad nating mga pinoy nurse na nagbibigay ng IV medication at injection. Ang Division 2/Enrolled nurse- cannot give medications. Pero may Enrolled nurse na ENDORSED na ibig sabihin nag aral sila to give medication sa pasyente except IV medication or injections.
Going back sa nakilala kong pinay sa ward. I asked her bakit di Pre-registration course ang kinuha nya since board passer na sya sa atin. Obviously di nya alam ang pasikot sikot sa australian nursing. Kasi naka student visa sya pero Division 2 ang pinag aaralan nya. Hospitals here will never sponsor Division 2 overseas students. Only Division 1. Kaya tip yan sa inyo. Pag board passer na sa atin, come here to study Pre-registration course for Overseas nurses. Few months lang yun. Eh itong Division 2 alam ko 1 year sya nag aral. SAyang nga. kasi di rin sya maiisponsor ng hospital. Unless ituloy nya ng Division 1. I felt bad for her. Nanghinayang din dahil gumastos na sya pero she never thought na dapat hindi Division 2 ang kinuha nya.

Anyone here looking at working as a nurse in Australia? Or already in Australia?
I'm an international student myself taking up business fashion in Sydney and I work as an education consultant on the side.
I just want to assist anyone who wants to pursue their career in here as a nurse since it is in demand.
I would also like to gather more info from nurses who are already here.
Hope to hear from all of you!

Alam ko most of the Filipino Nurses are wanting to go to the US. But New Zealand is so easy to get to. And the wait is shorter. Its so easy I did the process on my own. All you need is 450 hours of nursing practice and and an IELTS of 7.
And the IELTS, they are taking combined grades. Meaning if you have - lets say a 6.5 in Reading and 7 on the other modules. All you have to do is take the IELTS again and if you make the 7 in Reading and 6 on the other modules, the Nursing Council of NZ will take the combined grade of both your IELTS exam.
Kaya take advantage of it.
