    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.

    NO, how can they? This is not run by the Australian government indeed the Australian government wants to cutback on overseas sponsorship and stricter controls are in place to make sure an Australian applicant has not been found after much time advertising before an employer can sponsor an applicant.

    You the applicant have made the decision to apply and try your luck afterwards as you must have a working visa and this requires getting sponsorship from an employer.
    At this time many new Australian graduates and those with much work experience are not getting work.

    It is election time and it looks like immigration and sponsorship will be decreased considerably if the opposition party are voted in, and that is a big possiblity as at the moment that is very popular with most voters as many people, including professionals, (nurses) are unemployed.

    It was good. Our educators teaches well. they will cover everything that you need to know. You wont find it difficult to adjust since you've done nursing in our country.

    Hi sbeattrix

    How many months did you wait for you loe? I sent my papers last December and haven't received any feedback yet.
    Hi cclolly859,

    Try to inquire ahpra about your case. 2 and a half months is too long not to hear from them. For me, I also waited around 1 month and kept inquiring as to my status through AHPRA's web inquiry. Then after 1 month, I received a notification saying i have outstanding requirements. So once I knew the lacking documents...I set to work in getting those. It took me 2 months to get it, sent it by express and get a reply from them saying they got it. So I filed my application Last year August. Got my LOE 1st week of December. I applied in AHPRA Victoria. All papers were sent by fed ex.

    Pray and inquire and even call them for updates if you have to.

    God bless us.;-)
