Philman and studying nursing in Australia

  1. Hi, i am interested to study nursing in Latrobe via Philman. Since my ielts was not terrific. I am really trying my luck to go to Australia to work there as a nurse. If i get to study there ,can i still work part- time as a nurse? Do let me know guys if anyone of you are also planning to study in Latrobe and work with Philman.

    Hi Akkiko, welcome to Allnurses.

    First off, what is Philman? Secondly, you cannot work as a nurse (registered Division 1 or Division 2) unless you have obtained a registration from AHPRA. Holding yourself out as a nurse when you do not have registration is against Australian law and you maybe fined for doing so see link here. My entry to Australia was through a student stream as well. Since you will be studying in Victoria, I would like to advice you that any work would normally require a certificate, even as caregivers (Personal Care Workers, Nursing Assistants, etc) would need a Certificate III or IV before you can be given work. This is a mandatory requirement for the facilities to have qualified staff in order to retain their license to operate.

    If there's anything else, feel free to ask here.

    All the best!

    Hello, jmolina, as I was browsing through the intetent and reading blogs it seems Phil management was a consultancy firm to help send filipinos to aussie for studies.However,i find it very skeptical as i cnt find their proper website and no proper contact nos. I decided to apply studies direct from the Australian University either from Latrobe or Daekin University. May i know what specialized course u took.What is bridging program or under the one-year course? If i get straight 7 in IELTS,is it possible for me to straight away take AHPRA,and not need to take studies?thank you for helping me out in these as i really don't know where to begin.
