    a friend of mine is currently studying at Flinders University in Adelaide, South Australia. I am not sure if its the RN conversion program, but that's the closest I can think of because bridging programs just take weeks. Her program is a year. She started July this year. But it took her a year of processing, from school application to visa processing.

    Thank you Silverdragon102 and iamnomad!

    Yes i had visited the website of Flinder University but they don't offer the conversion program. What they have are with honours and graduate entry for nursing. But I'm not sure if both will guarantee for the registration in the Nurses and Midwives Board of Australia (NMBA) to become a Registered Nurse. Since that's what I'm after for.

    if AHPRA registration is your goal, why not apply for registration, and wait for AHPRA's assessment (which depending on states, maybe 2-9 months), then if eligible, you can do a bridging program for just 12 weeks.

    Okay, have you done much research already?
    www.unisa.edu.au
    www.flinders.edu.au

    Good luck getting a sponsored job there, as sa gov. has stopped all sponsorship of international nurses to public institutions at this time as has many other states public hospitals, and community health areas, due to federalism of our health system.
    Nearly forgot an english test isn part of the requirements for all education institutions.

    i have a classmate who's name is Leo Ralph V...and he was our class mayor.

    but anyway. I assume you already applied for AHPRA - RN registration. Because they will tell if you need a bridging program or not, to register or not. And you'll need their letter to be able to apply to a bridging program.

    re: Royal Adelaide Hospital. I just had a chat with my friend, who's studying in Flinders, and she said the hospital is not really hiring right now. She said it's mostly the nursing homes in regional areas that hire as of this time.
