    Thanks, is it easier in Queensland? Apparently my husband's office is in Melbourne, my kids will be studying in Melbourne, that is why I would like to apply in Melbourne if possible as well..
    Even if transferring you will probably find you will still need to meet their requirements

    To my understanding , there is a cheaper way of migrating to Australia with your skills as a graduate nurse from the Philippines . I think if you're under 30 , there is a type of visa called ' hmm.. can't even remember , will check it out and let you know asap. This is cheaper though, it only costs $175.00 AUSD for the visa charge besides the extras for ESL , return airfares etc. But look , it's goodpay in Aussie so you'll make more than you'll be spending anyway . Goodluck girl .... and hey , congratulations you graduated !!!! Yeah .. nursing .. the best choice !!

    NBV will accept applicants without experience...the best example for that is myself

    NBV already give me a go signal to do the bridging program few months ago...

    so feel free to submit your applications nurses...

    hey, bridging program usually ends after three months but it depends upon your performance, if the preceptor sees you as not yet competent, they would recommend you to extend the course a bit longer...however, if they sees you as competent and ready to be licensed during the course of the program or even prior to the completion of the program, they will advise the NBV that youre ready to be licensed without completing it.

    the program is being offered by different educational institutions and hospital/ nursing home facilities recommended by the NBV...it usually cost AU$ 10, 000...you will have the options in doing the program, its either in an accredited school or in one of the accredited hospitals/nsg.homes.

    hope these infos...answered your questions.

    Hello everyone!

    I have been reading threads with regards to the bridging program for quite sometime now, even before the results came out. And now that I am a newly registered nurse (Nov. 08 passer) I am now of GREAT, GREAT interest of doing the bridging program in Victoria. Wow, that would be great news if NBV accepts applicants even with zero experience. My question now is on the institutions/hospitals/colleges/universities, coz I just read in one thread that Victorian College is requiring work experience before you get accepted into their program. Do you guys have an idea on what institution doesn’t require one?

    As to the requirements that should be in hand, especially the certificate of initial registration (board certificate right?, coz I think that it’s the last to be released, like months, others say a year), what should I do about that? Do I need to make a letter or something regarding the situation?

    Thank you so much. Hope to hear from you soon.
