    can you give me the requirements? do i still need to take exams to prove that im eligible for registration? what is the process? thanks

    If you have the time, you can go through the thread I have given you and it explains most, if not, all of the vital information, steps, requirements for the different options you have for Australia. Each state has its own guidelines and some requires an exam while others do not.

    The length of the programs varies as well and can go from a few days up to several months.

    Just to clarify things, the poster actually started seveal different threads and one of them they were speciically asking about going for the three year Bachelor's in Nursing program. That did not make sense since they already will have a four year BSN and can get licensed in a much faster time. After reading all of their posts, have been under the assumption that he was not aware of the requirements of just going for licensure directly there and that is why was pointing them in that direction. No sense to attend school for several more years when the goal is to be licensed there as an RN, plain and simple.

    They will evaluate your records and then make a determination.
    All are required to take and pass their local license first of all before you can be considered. Then if one has two years or more of experience, then can get the asessment waived.

    There is a six month program that if you get thru that, you are automatically granted the RN license, or there is an assessment that you have to take where you get tested on each of the sections and need to pass them all and then the six month program can be waived.

    Either way, both of these routes are significantly faster than attending a program all over again.

    Much has been written on getting licensed in Australia, please just look for those threads and best of luck to you.
