  1. I am a US nurse, just submited my papers to AHPRA about 3 weeks ago. I know they said 3 months, but i was just wondering if anybody had any personal experiences about how long it actually took them? any tips etc? thanx!

    AHPRA Delivers Student Register

    05 Apr 2011


    A national Student Register is now in place, meeting a core requirement of the National Law.
    The CEO of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), Mr Martin Fletcher, said the Student Register would be maintained by AHPRA to reflect the profile of students as advised by Australia’s education providers.

    Yes u have to wait for 3 months, u have the experience there in US, why u never apply for PR directly?
    or why not apply for 24 weeks bridging program in Univ.of South Australia,that one will not require AHPRA approval
    all u need 2 yrs.work experience...

    I suppose because a US nurse does not need to Do a bridging course
    Honestly everyone tells different stories including grads here. Would lay a bet that it will be at least 6weeks though. We have just begun renewals though, whether this makes a difference or not.

    A couple days ago i recieved an email saying they have recieved my paperwork. My credit card hasn't been charged yet. I am just hoping it takes 3 months and not 4 months.

    Hi Rachi, don't keep your hopes up. Start counting the three months when they charged your credit card. It usually take 3 months.

    they just charged my credit card 4 days ago. do they send you any more info like a tracking number or something? or worst case scenario when do they telll you if you need to submit more information or need clarification on your submitted documents etc.

    Hi everyone! I'm set to apply for registration to APHRA. I'm a nurse here in the Philippines and I'm interested to work in Victoria. I understand that registration to APHRA is the first step right? How long does it usually take before u get their decision letter? What does it usually say to a registered nurse applicant with more than 3 years experience in the Philippines?

    I would really appreciate any input. I'm just starting with the whole process of trying to work abroad and need all the advise I can get. Thanks a lot.

    Suggest you read the large thread that discusses this subject in the International forum where we ask that these type of questions are posted. The Australian/New Zealand forum like the Canadian, Philippine and UK are just for local nursing issues
