    I will exit on my 3rd month, then go back here to fix everything.. Chances? Well, there are lots of job opening for PACU nurses as of the moment. It depends on your nursing experience too. They usually require 2-3 yrs experience here, and i got 4. I guess thats ok. Lets see what will happen. I will update you guys. Sent from my iPad using allnurses.com
    Exit where? Are you going back here in PH? For how long? Isnt there a chance youll get a hospital that will sponsor you before your 456 visa expires?

    Hi Annie_v2g,

    thanks for always updating us! would really like to hear your journey there. Hope and pray you find a job sponsorship. Btw, ETEA has a tie up with an employment agency right?
    I dont think they are connected with an employment agency.

    Yes, in the philippines Because my husband and son are there. My relatives want me to exit in NZ but i refused, One thing more, i already booked a return ticket. I can always come back here and go home every three months since my visa is multiple entry.. And il come back probably when my registration is released. Simply because you cant hunt for a job without it so its useless if you'll just wait here and do nothing.. And about your second question, well, maybe just take these things one at a time.. I cant answer that now since i am still on our placement.. I subscribed to job alerts for pacu nurses and there are lots of job openings in diff hospitals and diff cities. Im just not sure if they do sponsor the 457. You know what, there are lots of posts in here that seems discouraging at times.. U just have to believe with what you can do and pray that everything will turn out the way it should be.. Just pray.. God knows your desires. Godbless!

    Hi! Does anyone here know of a school that's still open for their may, june or july intake? I was for unisa's april intake supposedly but i didnt make it. Got the unconditional offer for aril 2013 intake last jan 30 but was able to pay the tuition by feb7 and voila, slots are now full. Yes its on a first come first served basis. Too bad.Waiting for ihna's letter of offer now butI bet its gonna be the august intake already. But theyll placeMe on the waiting list for earlier intakes. My ahpra will expire by november. Too bad. Also waiting now for a scheduled interview byAlpine health for april or june intake. Really hoping id get this one.Any other schools you can suggest? Thanks!

    Hello sephine,

    We're in the same boat. I have my interview with alpine health tom. when is yours. let me know okay. I do hope we get it. My LOE also expires by November. I also got additional requirements for UNISA then voila..no more slot. I tried applying to Mercy health, the available intake is for august. And deakins, although their still getting approval from cricos. and if all else fails..castlemaine health which would be for june. Really hope to get alpine health with you!;-)

    Have you received receipt of application? i was advised to wait for 2-4 weeks after I sent my documents but I received it after 2 weeks. And usually after another 2 weeks your case manager will contact you and you will know if you have outstanding requirements. From there and depending on your case manager, processing could be as fast as one month or up to 90 days.

    Why don't you try calling their office if they have received your documents. Good luck!

    Is that how it is there? Coz i thought some can get hired buy the hospitals where they are training from so they never have to comeback.. Is that possible? How about your filipino classmates? Is that their plan also? Thanks alot for answering my questions.
