    hi.. did the immig asked your friend to submit another proof from an APPROVED education provider? coz they told me that ACN is not an APPROVED provider. although i just thought that they are not yet aware that ACN is the new name for The College of Nursing.

    say you've gone through the bridging program, how would you describe the odds of actually landing a job prior to the expiration of your visa? ive heard the job market for nurses in australia is relatively terrible at this present time.

    She is about to lodge her visa this week.. ACN's accreditation is til 1 april 2013 in theie website, also with AHPRA. What is your reply to the immi?
    I just said that I am still waiting for the school to provide a letter. but they can't give me a letter unless they get the approval. so I am in a really tight situation. I only have until the 19th to wait for ACN's approval. or else my visa will not be granted.

    I sent them back the Confirmation form with my signature thru email. But at this point, I have to suggest that you wait for the school's approval from AHPRA before you lodge your visa. but be ready with your requirements so that as soon as they get their approval you can readily lodge your visa.

    Guys, just want to share with you if you are currently looking for a school, don't bother try applying at CON. In my case, i sent my application june 2012 and they have responded to me after 6 months! So if you're loe will be expiring soon, try somewhere else.

    hi eilocin,

    I lodged my application for ACN/CON late august and I got the offer 3rd week of December. email them, make inquiries regarding the status of your application.

    I sent an email to con and they told me they sent a message to ANCM? for an extension of their curriculum. I also received an offer letter from IHNA but the problem with it is that my AHPRA loe will already be expired by the time I finished the program which is in June. so I really do not have much od a choice now.. and I already have lodged my visa.. When is your intake?
