    At the current situation now having your assessment with nsw is not advisable.

    The unification of registering bodies. It's causing great influx of applicants, bp courses are limited, some schools/hospitals are no longer offering bp, bp slots are already full, long waiting list for bp slots next year. Hopefully, things will stabilize by July. Just wait and see.

    Okay, thanks for the tip. Since in NSW only the College of Nursing is offering the BP course i'll inquire from them first the chances of entering the BP program in 2011, because I'm seriously applying for eligibility infact this week i'll be sending already my documents.

    Bp program in all states are limited right now especially here in wa. Maybe we'll see changes by July. Also, assessment in nsw will now take up to 6 mos. Even in nbv. Gud luck mate

    Hi chocokat, is this the reason probably why they say your BSN doesn't match theirs? May I ask what's the problem with 2nd courses? I am also a 2nd courser but it was a 3-year curriculum and my Diploma states I graduated Bachelor of Science in Nursing. The 1 year was waived because the minor subjects have been evaluated as already undertook during the 1st course also with the same university.

    How many years did you finish your BSN as a second courser? I'm a bit worried now..

    I'm not sure why. Well they haven't handed out their formal assessment yet but as I've said, I'm not expecting anymore. I don't know if the reason is really because I'm a second courser or what. But I think that of all the states/territories in AU, NSW's nursing council is the strictest. A counselor at IDP told me so. Once I inquired about courses that I can take and just happened to mention that I applied at NSW-NMB for registration and that I was given a not-so-satisfactory preliminary assessment. The counselor confirmed that of all the states, NSW is the most stringent.

    I took up my BSN for 8 semesters, equivalent to 3 years (including summers). I have no failing grades nor did I repeat any subject. I even asked our Dean to make a letter stating that fact. My diploma says Bachelor of Science in Nursing also. My TOR from my first university was also attached to my BSN TOR. But I do not have any working experience post-registration. Maybe that's why. But don't worry, as everybody says it's a case to case basis. I hope you'll be assessed as an RN.

    Just pray while awaiting for the results ...I sincerely hope they consider you as an RN.do you have a work experience or a volunteer experience?
    Hi Julia, thanks for the encouragement, though I've prepared myself already ...

    Nope, no post registration experience. That is why I seldom visit out thread; coz I've been busy nowadays . Been (unsuccessfully) trying to find work and practice our oh, very dear profession

    Good luck and God bless on all our applications!

    Yes there's a HUGE difference. Can you expound more on the negative comment your friend is saying?

    He says that there has always been problems with the applicants' documents in nbv..like some are not being received or are missing...I was a little doubtful about that though.he's the same friend who was discouraged in applying for oz.
