    You would need to contact the college in the province you want to relocate to.

    Try clpna.com they have links to the other provinces. Look for the area entitled registration requirements or registering foreign nurses.

    Hi
    If Australia and the USA are using similar Nursing structures ie. Level 1 and 2 Nurses ( RN and EN in Australia, RN and LPN/LVN in the USA ) do they recognize each others EN - LPN/LVN qualifications?

    Hi! Actually I am determined to study LPN here in the Philippine but i'm worried and confuse if I have the chance to go to Australia and work as a LPN, would they accept or is it credited to them the LPN from the Philippine. I heard from my friend that even though you are a Registered Nurse from the Philippine, you still need to study in Australia for one year for you to work as a Registered Nurse. So how about the LPN?

    Questions about whether qualifications will transfer from one country to another are better asked in that countries' forum. You will find more accurate answers posting your questions and concerns in the Australian forum.

    That would be a question for your Nursing Council (http://www.nursing.edu.au/FAQ), although it may vary from territory to territory.

    You would have to contact the Board of Nursing (BON) for whichever state you wish to work. Each of the 50 states in the Continental United States has their own set of regulations which apply to their state. Some state licenses are good for many states, some aren't. In other words, the regulations for the state of Nevada may allow you to also work in California, but not in New York, and vice versa.

    You'll do FINE. Deep breaths, follow through, MAKE COPIES OF ALL YOUR PAPERWORK, and trust that God will take you there.

    Good Luck.

    Does anyone know if LPNs/LVNs from the US are able to work as ENs in Australia after this coming July 1st or when ever after Australia changes to national registration for nursing?

    I've worked as an RN in Saudi Arabia for 7 years and lived here for almost 10 years. I have never heard of any LVN's from any country working here. Only RN's. There are Techs (radiology, respiratory, gastroenterology, urology) but no LVN's. Sorry. It's a great place to live and work. I work for Aramco which IMHO is the BEST choice for life in the Middle East. Good luck.
