    hi bigbrowneyes!

    I am very interested to study at UB/AAoN hoping to get short listed next year.. my latest date of enrollment is by June 2013 coz my LOE expires on Oct. 2013 and my time is running.
    PLEASE help me coz as of now im preparing the requirements to get enrolled. What are the documents you attached in the your application form? are they certified by the notary public or any Atty. available?
    moreover, could you please state the procedures you did..

    Thanks much bigbrowneyes!
    actually i was under an agent so i only submitted the ff: COE, CV, TOR, ielts result, board cert, board rating, diploma and anything related to my studies. i think they scanned it and sent it to the school. i had a telephone interview then letter of offer will be sent if you passed.

    for the visa processing, i had those certified by a notary public and added an affidavit from my parent/s or anybody supporting my studies in oz (have 2-3 copies of this) with bank cert and bank statements, ITR and other docs that can show their financial suitability. they were all certified. just an advice, never submit original documents to embassy except your passport because if somethings happens with your application, God forbids though, they are not going to return everything intact.

    god bless on your application!

    Hi good day!
    Good thing that I found this site for nurses who
    wishes to live and be a R.N in AU someday.
    Well, I'm happy for those who already have their LOE from Ahpra (please help us).
    I'm planning as well to go in AU next year (hopefully).

    So by January I'll start my review for IELTS (to get a totaL BAND SCORE OF 7).

    Somehow, I'm worried at times since I only have a 1 year work experienced as a Staff R.N in a secondary hospital under medical-surgical ward.

    I'm afraid if I'm done with my b.p and I'll have a hard time looking for a job since I only have a year experience.

    Any comment or suggestion with regards my concern??? TIA.!

    P.S: can somebody tell me more about the bridging program (the course outline of B.P). TIA.

    I've been reading this thread for quite sometime...
    My friends and I are planning to take the bridging program of AUS...

    I am currently working in UAE as clinic nurse for 4 years now... will they qualify my experience?

    My next question is... I've noticed that enrollment is quite expensive, my savings will not be able to cover all the cost plus the fact that I have to arrange myself for accommodation and etc.... Are student under bridging program are not allowed to work?

    Thanks guys!

    Your experience is enough to take the Bridging Program. Do you already have your ielts? Students are allowed to work depending on the type of visa they have. But as you've said, enrollment and application is expensive so you'll be needing sufficient funds before you take the bp.

    hi ianlanvin.

    may i ask how many days you've waited from the day you sent your application for enrolment in AAoN up to the time that they responded on your application? coz i haven't receive any response yet from U.B and IHNA. I sent my application last Oct. 13..

    Hi jap! well i have submitted my application last September 10. then ive waited for like almost a month and i havent received anything so i asked my agency to call their office to follow it up. Sadly i have to resend my application again because they havent received any application coming from me. so i sent my application again last week of september and i received an email from them october 3rd. after 2 weeks my friend told me that they were sending out interview schedules, so was like so psyched about it but i thought that they might send it last week of october cause there are so many applicants. To my surprise, i received an email from them october 13th regarding my interview schedule. and the rest is history. My advise is you need to ring them up in order for them to follow up your application. Because there are so many applicants applying for AAON its so crazy. i even considered applying to other schools for back up but my heart is with AAON. well to sum it up a good follow up and patience will do the trick! i hope you'll be able to receive the interview schedule in due time. Goodluck Jap!!!
