    Just want to ask, I read the Nursing Board of Tasmania regarding their requirements for Registration as a Nurse. It says there Overseas nurse applicants who are applying for migration should FIRST CONTACT the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Council for an application form for assessment of their Nursing Qualification prior to Making application with this Board.

    So that means, we first have to apply at the ANMC before applying to any state board in Australia.

    In ANMC, I read that we have to have atleast 1 year work experience. So does this mean that a fresh graduate like me is not qualified to pass an application to the ANMC ?
    You only need to contact ANMC if you would apply for General Skilled Immigration (136). ANMC is the government body that will assessed you in order to qualify for the points needed to pass the immigration.

    You can contact the various State Nursing Body if you are planning to work under 457 Working Visa - Temporary Long Stay. This is in order for you to have a license and proceed working immediately.

    Could I still get a Working Visa from any state board of Nursing even though I won't apply at ANMC ? If for example I have no plans on immigrating to Australia.

    I really just want to work there because I could not leave my parents here.

    Yes you dont have to apply to ANMC if you are not going to submit your General Skilled Migration application.

    International Section

    The International Section of the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Council (ANMC) is an assessing authority for the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC). The ANMC conducts an assessment of Registered Nurses and Midwives who intend to migrate to Australia under the General Skilled Migration category. The ANMC has been authorised by DIAC to undertake these assessments. Through this process the ANMC determines whether nurses and midwives are suitable for migration or whether they may need to undertake further education in order to be eligible for migration in the stated skill category.

    Thread moved to the International Forum per the new structure that we have in place here. Any questions having to do with immigration or licensure as a foreign nurse to a new country, need to be placed under the International Forum.

    We are trying to keep the sub-forums for topics related to actual work practices in those countries for the nurses that are already living and working there.

    Please refer to the red banner at the top of each of the sub-forums for further clarification.

    And thanks for your understanding on this. Licensing and immigration rules are always changing and what someone did in the past may not hold true any longer.

    Hi

    I would just like to clear this up. Does Australia needs 1 year experience for you to be able to apply for thier bridging course? Or you can still apply for the bridging course even though you have no experience

    (being here in the Philippines no job for a year, trying to look for a hiring hospital but they insist they're on freeze hiring... how could you get any experience here with flocks of nurses and no vacancies on hosps. sheesh!)

    you need to have ATLEAST 1 year WORK experience before you could submit your application for eligibility to enroll in their bridging program which cost $12,000 AUD

    Thank you for your reply. I read in some forums that evenr though you don't have any experience here, as long as you pass their Aus Assessment, you are eligible to apply for their bridging course and from what i heard in only cost around 7000AUS$. 12000AUS$ too much! haha! I'm starting to think again.

    You don't have to have an experience to apply for registration with Queensland Nursing council. Please Google QNC1 and you start from there. goodluck.
