    I'm planning to take the 1 year conversion program in Deakin. After that Deakin told me i am eligible for RN. Is this true? Also, what are the chances for no experienced new grads from Bachelor of Nursing?

    Y would you go for the conversion program if you are a degree holder?

    If u are a diploma holder then conversion is necessary and upon completion, certainly you'll be an RN.

    Are experiences from home countries such as Philippines,India,Singapore, etc.. still counted as the "work experience" most hopitals need? Or do they mean work experience in Australia?

    The job market is getting tougher. I can confirm that. I finished the bridging program but haven't been lucky to find an employer during the duration of my visa. I am still applying and hoping that an employer will take notice of me, but I only get calls and letters of rejection. The main reason for which is that I am NOT currently in Australia. I also know of a friend who had the bridging program in 2009, but haven't found an employer up to now. We both have substantial work experience. Employers seem to prefer applicants who are IN Australia, than those offshore. Some of my friends have less than a year's experience, but still managed to get a job in Australia.

    True. According to new stats July batch 2012 who finished BP at **** only had 3 filipinos got job in their batch and I think none in my batch as of the moment but don't worry they are still searching. I am just telling the truth but if there is progress or improvement in our job search I will try to repost.

    It's so frustrating when employers call me up and when they realize I'm not in Australia, they shift their tone to a more negative one. I plan to go back to do jobhunting and walk-in application. It seems like my options are:
    1. Student Visa - quite expensive
    2. Tourist Visa - risky
    3. Short stay Business Visa - requires evidence that I have to attend to an interview.

    This is catchy. How is your search for employment? Are you in australia? In terms of professional experience, what is your nursing background in the philippines?

    Australia sees low nurse demand By MALOU M. MOZO
    July 7, 2011, 4:14pm
    CEBU CITY, Philippines — Filipino nurses eyeing job opportunities in Australia will have to wait for at least two years as the Australian government announced it will hold off applications for foreign nurses beginning this year until 2013.
    Austrialian Ambassador to the Philippines Rod Smith explained that this was due to a consolidation movement of Australia’s public healthcare sector.
    “From now until 2013 there will be no significant demand for nurses outside of Australia,” he made this announcement during his recent visit to Cebu.
    At present, Smith estimated some 250,000 Filipinos working and residing in Australia, majority of them working as nurses or other medical professions.
    He failed to clarify, though, whether the employment status of Filipino nurses in Australia will be affected by the ongoing consolidation in their public health sector.
