Nursing Board of Victoria

  1. 0 This is for Overseas Trained Nurses asking about the Migrant Bridging Program available in Victoria, Australia.

    University of Ballarat
    Pre-registration Program for Overseas Qualified Nurses (PPOQN)

    Course Outline

    The Re-entry Program for Division 1 Registered Nurses (RPRN) and Pre-registration Program for Overseas Qualified Nurses (PPOQN) is an 11-week non-award program that leads to registration as a Division 1 professional nurse with the Nurses Board of Victoria (NBV), Australia. The program contains both theoretical and clinical components and is delivered at accredited health care venues in central and western Victoria that are ‘Partnered’ with the University of Ballarat. Both components of the program require satisfactory completion of assignments and/or clinical competencies.


    Written confirmation from the NBV as to the eligibility of participants to undertake this program must be obtained before applying for the program. Note that satisfactory completion of this program does not entitle the participant to employment at clinical venues utilised in delivery of the program.

    hi, Victorian

    i think u can go to any firm of the notary public in ur country, it doesnt cost much actually. like where i live in HONG KONG ( it costs around 80 hkd per page). i dont know whether its expensive or not but i think i have no choice, Im going to bring my documents to certify also in those notary public firm.........since the ANMC needs certified copies by those authorities........
    i think it should be fine!
    by the way, GOOD LUCK !!!

    You need to check specifically with the Board as to what they will accept.
    For the US, and if one is out of the US; anything of importance is always notorized by the US Embassy. Many times, notaries in other areas are not always legal.

    Best to make sure of their qualifications before having the documents notarized by just anyone. And that they are truly legal and a registered notary in that country.

    You cannot submit anything as they will not do anything with your file, the local license is a requirement for them.

    Please wait until you get your license, you have no choice but to wait. Do you even know for a fact that you passed the exam? If the license is a requirement, as it is for most other countries, they will not look at anything without it, and will only send you a letter to submit it.
