    it really depends on the hospital....as ramsay health care is a network of hospitals. if one of its member hospital will not accept you they will look for another hospital for you...and your admission to a certain member of their hospital network will really depend on the outcome of your interview too.

    hi ryan, do you mean, they will accept you for enrollment even if you don't have post registration work experience but pass the interview?

    hi, when i rang them, they just told me to complete the application form and then they will forward your application to the different hopitals includedd in their network...and once a certain hospital have accepted your application they will arrange for an interview. and i guess, if youre not in australia they will just interview you over the phone. Ramsay health care will look for a suitable hospital for you.

    After any type of bridging program or competency course in Australia, you may or may not be registered. If you pass the bridging program, you will be registered, however, should you fail, you will not be registered in the end. Sadly, there's no assurance for this one or any other pathway anyway.

    You can only apply for a working visa after you have been registered with NBV and assessed by ANMC. You will also have to have an employer for the 457 Visa (temporary long stay visa) or even the Skilled Sponsored (migrant/permanent) visa. The latter one needs you to have experience tho.

    Hope that answers your question.
    hi aelith
    what would i do first? pass my application to nbv or be assessed by ANMC? can i pass my application to nbv w/o a visa? do i really need to beassessed by ANMC?

    hi everyone :-) A question here, before submitting any application to any approved hospital for the bridging program, is it preceded first by an application to the nursing board of Victoria for the assessment and approval? Thank you

    Hey ciao...

    Here are the steps:

    • apply with the nurses board of victoria first
    • wait for the results of their assessment ie. a letter telling you to take a bridge program first
    • enroll in the accredited schools for the Bridge Program (Ballarat, deakin, etea,---most common ones)
    • get a visa ---either short stay, tourist or student visa --you need to have the certificate of enrollment
    • after completing the course, get back to the NBV that you have completed it --you'll get registered then
    • you can then start looking for employer
    that should be it....

    NBV doesn't require post graduate experience...only some schools offering the bridge program...ETEA, ballarat, deakin and la trobe do not require experience. as far as i know, only Ramsay health who offers the lowest course fee is requiring hospital experience of 1 year.... all the rest of the schools are charging 10,000-10500 AUD course fee...
