    b4 u get there u must take and pass the ielts here,or u can take it in OZ, it cost Php8640 for testing fee, if u want more info go to ielts.org, u don't need to take cgfns or or even nclex, since u passed the NLE, ur focus now is to gain experience for at least 6 months to 1 year, unlike US u dont need to gain experience, as long as can pass the NCLEX and toefl or ielts (it depends on the state) u can apply for working visa immediately. U.S. focuses on theories rather experience (competency). once u get there in oz u will undergo a migrant bridging program for at least 6 months to 1 year.
