    I am risking the resource on such a risky situation. but my situation is a 1 time thing..so if i don't risk now..can't risk in the future. I believe, this might be what God is directing me too..but suffice it to say...doubts is still in the air.

    Yes, I applied at castlemaine health. hmmm...i even sent my application twice...just to be sure...how come yours was bounced? did you send it at this email?

    *******@castlemainehealth.org.au

    I emailed them early feb not taking note of the application dates...and from there...i also asked about travel insurance requirements...she said...she cant assist in that area.

    So I really really waited patiently for march 1.

    Castlemaine health looks better...but the only concern i have for that is their approval status is only until sept 2013.....won't it be cutting too short? my cousin had problem with the registration because she had her intake at ETEA..it took her 2 months to get her registration. so my parents are telling me to double check the schools status 1st...

    what is your thoughts on this?
    Hi sbeattrix,

    I have sent you a PM a while ago. Yes, I sent my application to that email address. I first sent my documents a week before March 1 and Ms. ********immediately replied that my emailed documents were deleted because it wasn't yet March 1. I emailed again my docs last Friday but it bounced back. She received too many applications and mine could not just get into her inbox. I checked the approval status of Castlemaine and it's only until Sept 18. If I'm not mistaken, the end date of the course is Sept 1. So I think it's not really a problem. But to be sure, you can ask advice from AHPRA regarding that matter.

    Hi Sephine,

    I just emailed the principal today. No reply yet coz it's Sunday. Hopefully by tomorrow, I'll get an update. I will get the decision from Mercy Health tomorrow. I hope it's a positive one. I just feel hopeless now. You said your agency will be the one to settle everything. Is your agency Philman?
    Hi! Yup you are right about my agency. You're even lucky you've got many school options. Hope you'll get the feedbacks by tomorrow im hoping i could find cheaper accomodation options. Now makes sense why they asked if i can drive

    Hi guys! I'm just new here. Is there anyone who will be going to IHNA's March 8th intake in Perth? Were you able to completely finish the online course? Cause I sure haven't. Yikes! Anyway, I would like to ask how did you pay for your tuition fee. Did you guys pay for it in full already or are you going to pay when you arrive in Perth? Thanks for the reply.

    castlemaine health is currently taking applications until march 15, 2013 5 pm.

    Thanks for your input. Will check it out but apparently I'm under an agency and i'm suggested to apply to 2 bp schools at the moment, Alpine and AAON.

    I've checked with Alpine but the available slot is for August intake.

    Which agency did you apply with? sgs? I am doing this by myself...I have asked Lonsdale/Alpine health how i can pay by credit card. and have asked for more details for the accommodation. but i might not avail the accommodations coz alot are saying its too expensive. also...i am trying to apply to castlemaine health. tuition and accommodation is 13,000 all in all. and they offer early exit depending on performance...but their accreditation with ahpra is to expire by sept 2013...so i'm not that sure if it is a wise call. may i know your email add sephine?
    Hi! Lucky you can still try castlemaine health..im waiting now for my agency's feedback as what to do next. Im just glad a school accepted me and before my LOE expires at that wished someone could share to us how the bp in alpine health went as the data in the website wasnt that extensive. Please do share once you have an idea of the place's accomodation set up etc. Thank you!

    Hi sephine, I think we are under the same agency which bp schools you applied so far?

    I've also inquired them about Castlemaine Health.

    Hello sephine. i tried castlemaine..but they have emailed me back saying that they will get back to me towards end of march. That is too close for the deadline of lonsdale.....if all is too unsecure, i would just might go with lonsdale but i have no idea how to resolve the accommodation issue. Lani_g knows someone who went to alpine health and i'm asking for her help about it. other than that..i'm totally clueless...

    Maybe philman has sent applicants there before? maybe you'd be able to get a contact? definitely if you would pursue finding an accommodation and want to share a room or house, I'm in!

    I emailed lonsdale inquiring about the accommodation, they still havent replied. i guess their too busy right now. will email them again.

    I too am just feeling blessed a school has accepted me and months before my loe expires. I just hope getting the 1st one who accepted me would be the wisest decision.

    Sephine, it seems that i can't send you private messages. Is it okay for me to add you in facebook or know your email add?

    Thanks so much!
