    Yes, foreign nurses needs to have their skills assessed first by ANMC as suitable for migration, to do that ANMC require nurses to be registered first in Australia, thus they have to complete first a competency assessment program such as the BP. I checked this myself since my family is also currently applying for the GSM but since I am not qualified to earn high points (because I still haven't undergone the BP/Conversion) then it is my spouse now who is the Principal Applicant since he is an Accountant.

    On my side, I'm just preparing myself to be registered in Australia should my spouse's application be favorable. I also submitted my docs to NMB-NSW last week of April, 2 days ago I called them to verify if they received all my docs and yes they did... they asked me to wait up to 6 months for the result. I'm also quite worried that I'd land up with the same prelim assessment like isobelle and chocokat, but whatever it is as long as my spouse's GSM gets approved then I'd take whatever pathway there is to be a registered nurse someday in Oz.

    Indeed it does not mean that our education is not at par with australian education, infact my husband's assessment as an accountant with CPA Australia has been successful that's why we are able to apply for the GSM. My husband studied his Accountancy in the same University where I studied my Nursing. Also, the one who started this thread was a fresh graduate from the Philippines and her application was successful. Anyway, lets all have high hopes... successful or not everything has its own time... things happen for a reason

    I fully agree with you..like they say "it's a case-to-case basis."

    QLD and NSW have already stopped their bp for sometime now. Qld is purposely assessing the nurses now as EN. I've realized now that NSW is already doing this as well. Maybe it's better if everyone just wait for the natl reg instead.

    With the current situation of aus at the moment, yup it's hard now to find a nrsg job in the city especially at the hospitals. They're so choosy now too bec of budget crisis and budget cuts. Some are not even hiring. But don't worry too much on this bec it's only temporary. Nursing demand is a cycle after all

    Hi, i have just read your post and the whole stories now... Well, i am from Indonesia actually and i kindly ask your advice regard to my case. I have applied for registration to NBV, and i have completed the whole documents needed. Though, there's a problem with my official declaration from my last hospital here in Indonesia. Here, as per the policy that we need to work for at least 2 years then only the company would issue us a working experience letter, so i couldn't support my working statement. Fortunately just 1 month before i resigned, i asked my hospital to give me official declaration of my working statement for my Alumni Association Membership in college. I sent that letter to support my working statement to NBV, the problem is, on that letter, it is stated that my occupation is Nursing Duties instead of Full time Staff Nurse. Since i couldn't ask my company to make another official statement, now i made an affidavit related to my case. I sent them my affidavit three weeks a go and i haven't followed up again after since. Do you think that they find my affidavit enough to support this?!.
    Do you have any idea on whether we can apply for more than one board of nursing? I mean, it has been almost 5 months since i first sent my initial application to NBV but I still haven't received the recommendation letter yet and this condition is making me down somehow. I plan to apply for another board of nursing if it's possible and see on whether i can get faster recommendation letter.
    Thank you very much, i kindly ask your help.
    God bless

    there is no restriction as to the number of Nurses Boards that you can apply. I suggest you study each board's requirements and follow them to the letter. I think you can still beat the July 1 date, when all boards would become one, and no one knows what the requirements will be for overseas trained nurses. From what i have learned, NMBWA is quick, especially if you have complete requirements. You have to arrange with IELTS to send them the scores directly though. hope this helps

    @JavRN, thank u very much for ur reply... Do u know the initial process for overseas nurses to apply for registration there? I mean, is it a cumpolsory to apply to the Nursing council first before I apply to the individual state board such as NBV?? because last time I applied directly to NBV. and is it a compulsory to send my IELTS score directly from IDP to NBV?. Thanks a bunch for filling up my knowledges about the whole process, it is a very stressful time for me anyway since I have no one here to ask.... Thank's again
