    @Due2007, that's good news for you I was able to contact my Uni & they gave me the tracking number finally! The problem is, tracking number showing that NSW has received the letter from my Uni on 4/3/16 and why they are still asking me on 14/3/16 whether if the letter has already been posted? Frustrating Wonder if they have lost it

    My application is officially closed today

    I wonder if anyone experience this. I registered in both country: Malaysia & Singapore. However, I worked in Malaysia in 2010 for only 4 months & obviously it's more than 5 years. I saw the statement in ahpra application form: 'If you have been registered outside of Australia, you must arrange for original Certificates of Good Standing or Certificates of Registration Status to be forwarded directly from the registration authority to your AHPRA state or territory office.' As I worked for only 4 months in Malaysia, there is no testimony can be provided (a testimony needed for COGS application in Malaysia), thus I can't apply for COGS. However, COGS has been requested from SG. My RO sent me an email that as what I have written in the registration history, COGS is a must. He mentioned to reapply once all documents are ready & registration fee will be refunded.

    Because of no COGS, I was rejected. I wonder if COGS from SG is not enough? What should I do? it's totally unfair!

    Hi Lisbeth,

    I have been approved for the bridging program which must be completed before august this year and have asked for an extension. BSN from DK in 2008 enrolled nurse from 1995, Australian citizen, still have to do the english test although I grew up here. Have appealed through QNU with a lawyer, to no avail, seems it would have been easier if I could have moved back to Aus earlier. So now I work as an AIN, cant afford the bridging yet and cant leave my family to go to Melbourne. Sort of a hopeless situation, and even if you are an aussie, no finacial aid since the bridging program is not commonwealth approved, yet a bachelor degree is. Nothing they do makes any sense. Dont know how to send a private message to you!

    Hello to you all,

    I f anyone is interested in my story it is in the first page and on of this thread. I am very disappointed that EU nursed are banned from Australia. Imagine, when I applied in 2013 the regulation was that EU RNs were recognised and were granted registration in Australia. But in the process the rules changed, my application was assessed according to the new rules and the answer was to do a bridging course with no warranted registration at the end. I complained. No change. They made me withdraw my application. Finally I decided to leave Australia, I was very much disappointed. It is obvious that AHPRA is playing games with EU and US nurses. I you want to go to Australia get prepared to study nursing there all over again or change your career. That is the truth about Australia.

    You're right, rules and policies change every year. But I guess that's for them to decide whatever they want to do to upgrade and maybe screen more RN's who enter Australia. The bridging program, if I may, is not studying nursing all over again. It basically educates you on the Australian standards and their healthcare system. This is basically new to every overseas nurse who would want to work in Australia. So yeah, to sum things up, if one wants to work in any country in the world for that matter, we should abide by their rules and fulfill all the needed requirements. If we can't or we don't want to, then that's our decision. This is just my 2 cents. Peace

    I got denied by AHPRA- applied May 1st, 2016- december 22, 2016 got denied, appealed my rejection, and sent them 2,000 pages. What was in those pages? All of my lectures. I would do the same- send all the pdfs, every project you had in school. My case was turned around and as of yesterday I am now an OZ RN ;-) ( Oh and I am American). all in all it took my case 375 days...and I began to collect all of my data April 2016...so thats about 400 days in my case. However, I am " complicated"...I lived in germany for a while ( you have to get a background check), and coming from California, its a very backlogged State, they lost my " certificate of Good Standing", so that delayed everything by about 4 months.

    Hi everyone, the outcome of my assessment was mailed to me this morning stating AHPRA's intention to refuse my application. However, there are certain things I do not understand about their decision. AHPRA requires me to undergo further studies in an NMBA approved pre registration program leading to registration as a registered nurse. Does this by any way mean a bridging program.
    Further more, they gave me an opportunity to make a submission before 15th of October stating that if I do not make a submission that my application is to be considered refused.
    Please am in dire need of clarification.

    Hi chibundo, same here, but with the email I received is a letter endorsing me to a bridging program. hence i could use that to enrol for the BP. they are strict with their deadlines. so you should send them a reply if you would want to consider their recommendation, for me their recommendation is the BP.
    I say they are strict because I missed the deadline for 3 days. and hence was emailed a final refusal... the verdict... a reapplication... so don't miss your deadline. i'm a nurse here in the Philippines.

    And so with that I also need some help here! my agent said reapplication is not necessary now. Since I have the letter of endorsement to take the bridging program, reapplication should be done after finishing the BP... anybody having or had the same experience?

    Pls pls... somebody shed some light to my concern. thanks so much!

    Hello, I am wondering how AHPRA sends the letters of refusal. Do they send a scanned copy via email or do they put it in the post?
