We want to hear how those who have completed the bridging program in Australia have been doing after finishing the course. Kindly share how you were able to find employment, how short/long you were able to find a sponsor, and how you are doing so far career-wise. For those who are still unable to land employment, we also want to know what your difficulties are and plans of pursuing your opportunities in Australia.
Here's a recent posted thread on the same question: click here: http://allnurses.com/international-n...ng-795185.html
To make it long and short, for most PH'ers, it will be even tougher, as sponsorship are either very rare or non-existent, hiring preferences are leaning towards hiring those students and nurses from Ireland (it's in the above thread), more hiring amongst the local and AU citizens and even those in the priority status are unable to find their first RN job. Take your chances with your time and $$ as I think like what's happening in the States is happening in AU. There's no nursing demand for PH students or nurses in the USA until the year 2020, maybe.
Here's that BBC article from last year: US Labor Market Tough for Filipino Nurses until 2020
