    Just for a student visa/business for bridging course you will need IELTS 7 one sitting academic, Bridging course 7 ielts academic and to be assessed by AHPRA 7 ielts academic. If lucky enough to get a sponsorship or you want to apply for independed migration, 7 ielts academic.
    Look at the threads here for all infomation, yes, as all RN's in Australia are supposed to be strong in researching ourselveson all that we do not know, before we ask others.
    "i have an overall 8 individual Reading 8.5,Listening 8.5,Writing 7.5,Speaking 7.5...thats 8 in all.
    i gave my test in india."

    That's his IELTS score - I should send people failing their IELTS to India

    ^ You do know that the IELTS exam is judged by international standards following strict guidelines.

    The fact that his reading and listening scores are near perfect doesn't mean it's easier where he took it. The questionnaire and the answer key remains the same anywhere the test is taken.

    Hi everyone....Im new here. Ive just receive approval letter from AHPRA sOUTH Australia. I submitted the application sept 5 and acknowledge on sept 15. The approval letter was date oct. 28, 2011. I receive it via snail mail last nov. 11, 2011. Im presently preparing for the bridging course. I was only given 1 year to comply with the bridging course otherwise my slot will be forfeited. Im a second courser and Im very glad I was able to receive the approval that fast. Maybe also because of my overseas experience. I plan to enroll for the bridging course in sydney. Anybody here who had already undergone bridging course in sydney. Please provide me the name of the school. Could you also share some experiences during you study. Your advice will be highly appreciated. Thank you very much.

    Hello
    Let me get this straight

    1.) I'm a non-university graduate, a recent board passer, and I don't have a working experience yet. But I can still file for assessment to AHPRA?

    2.) To pass may assessment to AHPRA, I first need to get a 7 in IELTS?

    3.) When i'm approved/eligible already: I will then be given the chance to choose a BP school that I want?
    When i'm not eligible: The money will be returned and I would have no choice but to file for assessment again to AHPRA?

    Did i get it right? can anyone please correct what i listed down
    thank you!!

    Hi everyone!

    Please don't judge.
    Please don't hate.

    Honesly, I am having a hard time making my curriculum vitae based on the standard CV Format AHPRA posted in their website. I have zero nursing experience. I am a fresh graduate and a recent July 2011 passer.

    I hope anyone would be kind enough to share to me their CV. I'll greatly appreciate your help.

    Sorry if this too much but I am really having a hard time. Hope someone will share their CV.

    *Hoping.

    God bless everyone! especially to us, fresh nurses.

    Hi mikeyrho...im new here, like the rest i wanted also to be guided by this AHPRA registration... How did you about your CV particularly the Statement of Service? Did you ask previous employer to issue you employment certificate with format as AHPRA stated, like stating whether you did full time or part time etc? or did you just passed what they issued to you? apparently that's my problem right now.

    thanks for the help! Good Day
