    thanks for the info emes05. just recently got my eligibility from ahpra. i'm currently working as a staff nurse in a tertiary hopital. been there for 5 years alreadyand is only assigned in a medical-surgical unit. do u think that i will have a big chance to be employed as a RN in aussie later on? are there any other options aside from the working visa should i not be offered with such by a future employer? thanks for anyone here who will find time to answer my query.

    you may browse through the different threads here tackling the bridging program (steps, concerns, costs) and you would read some helpful comments from those who have finished the course and from the guides in this forum.. i have read that nurses with 3 or more years experience in critical care have more chances of getting sponsorship after acquiring registration. anybody can have a chance in employment - it will be a matter of qualifications, timing, luck and perseverance. and probably lots of spare money too, in some cases.. one option aside from the working visa would be filing for the skill select after registration, but that is another whole application and process.

    If you had come 2 years ago..good chance, employers were giving overseas new graduates jobs. Times have changed.

    No employer is supposed to give someone needing a visa over an applicant that does not. Locals with a few years experience in general are too scared to move as there are no jobs due to cutbacks in all states health departments.

    Also there are record numbers of nurses coming from the UK USA and Canada all wanting to work in Australia as well...and of course our New Zealand nurses many, many wanting to come to Australia after graduation.

    All this, one must use critical thinking skills, there is a chance, but not a good chance. You will be fourth in line. If there is a local, an applicant that has worked in english only medium especially Australian experience already, applicant with a PR visa from the Phils, India, then applicant from, UK, Canada Phils, India wanting sponsorship.

    as what others have said here before, it will be difficult to find a sponsor these days, and the Australian government is tightening the work visa program. But really, it's still possible. It will all depend on your perseverance, patience, and prayers (and a bit of luck).

    Getting a job is one story. Immigration is another. You can probably qualify for a permanent residency without a sponsor (visa subclass 189) if you have all the qualifications.

    I just want to share some stuff regarding the bridging program, registration and employment.. Maybe I can consider myself lucky because I just finished my BP in March and I got a job offer this May. I know a lot of students who did their BP but unable to secure their registrations on time. Aside from that, even if some have their registrations already, still, they are having difficulty looking for a job. Moreover, agencies are no longer offering sponsorship except for applicants who have 3 yrs plus experience in Western countries. I remember my husband telling me that "if you only have 1% chance of getting a job in Australia then you apply to 100 job posting everyday" Sounds funny but it helped. I send my application to almost every vacancy that I think would fit my qualifications. And after few weeks of sleeping late and receiving bunch of reject letters, I finally got the chance to get an interview. No, 2 interviews I meant-- one in VIC and one from NSW. And by the way, PRAYERS PRAYERS PRAYERS.. they're still the best.

    I still can't believe that a lot still wants to pursue nursing in Australia! Guys, if you have lots of experience, go for it since you may apply for PR without sponsorship,,, but if you have no experience at all...think twice... no, a hundred times! They prefer nurses with experience if you're from overseas and for GNP position, they prioritize the locals and PRs!!!!

    You are right. As of now, I am just waiting for my nomination then apply for the 457 visa. I hope everything will go smoothly.
