    Hi Ian. What is a BRIDGING VISA? Thank you in advance.
    Well a bridging visa is something you can request in the embassy if you want your visa to get extended. I think you can apply that by saying your waiting for your registration number to be released or waiting for your visa to be converted into a 457. That's what my friend told me about a bridging visa. Haven't been on that stage though still waiting for my 456 to get released. Hehehe

    You can only apply for bridging visa if, you already have a sponsor that has applied as sponsor for the 457. Otherwise you have to change it to a tourist visa. Or leave the country and come back on the 456 if, it has multiple entry.

    Which university offers the shortest bridging program or those that allow early exit? I only intend to go on leave from my job as I have the course and this needs an intensive planning.
    Once Completed with the BP, do you have to personally claim your certificate if you need to exit first?
    Anyone here who finished the BP and how long did it take you to land on a job? Thanks

    Yes please,, advise where all these jobs for nurses are, so that the new grads or ones from last year can get work and also returning nurses that want work can also gain employment in this country.

    Look at the advertising, must have work rights!!...... must have at least 2 years experience........must have post grad in this area........then look at the specialty, they are asking for experience. They are, most of the time, for part time as well....which you cannot get sponsorship visa.

    Please do not make statements there is a high demand for nurses when there is not. Nurses with a specialty- ED, theatre, icu sometimes renal, and 2-3 years recent experience are always being advertised, but then sometimes they want work visa as well.

    This is what is often written - from an ad, that said they were desperate for aged care RN's in northern Sydney al beit for casual,
    ""To be eligible to apply for this position you must have an appropriate Australian or New Zealand work visa.""

    Any idea of the university offering the shortest BP or allowing early exit?

    actually, i have no idea about that. it's the agency that takes care of everything. sorry i can't help you with that as of the moment. but if i get the offer next week, as the agency has promised, then i'll take a look at it.

    hi everyone! may I just ask how would you assess the chances of a Filipino nurse with 1 year exp in OR/Theatre with regards to job placement after bridging? how are employment opportunities for nurses with 1 year exp in the specialties? thanks.

    About the same as mine and I have no theatre experience, and better than those with no experience or 3 month volunteer in general wards. IMHO

    hi ceridwyn. thanks for the reply.

    what do you mean by "same as mine" ? r you saying you also had 1 year exp when you had your bridging? is 1 year exp in the Theatre enough to risk a fortune in a bridging course nowadays?

    I have no idea from what are your lived experiences that you need to move countries.

    What does Australia offer you? Is it worth the risk?

    i think it is definitely worth the risk if job placement has high certainty...and this is what i'm trying to find out although one might say "you'll never know til you get there" ...well, moving from a third world to a first world country sums up all the benefits i guess.not to mention excellent career advancement opportunities.

    and....this is where I get confused, with so many people 100000's acquiring degrees especially nursing degrees of any quality to be used in other countries, in the Phillipines, how do the people afford it, when our students here are thousand and thousands of dollars in debt and could never consider moving countries are considered living in a first rate country!.....how is the Phillipines a 'third world'country, when there are large amount of poor people here as well, starving and without homes wondering where the next meal is coming from.

    Australia does pay anyone not working through centrelink benefits, they even pay women to have babies. Our health system, however crumbling..was free....
    However,
    We have large charity organisations just to feed and cloth the poor socio-ecomic part of our community,. Us that are born here often feel overlooked citizens as our needs and culture, mores are second rate to those that immigrate, but our Indigenous people are treated even more poorly and have very poor health and career outcomes.

    We have a massive drug problems and mental health problems all poorly funded for health and education and care.

    We have a large pedafile community that keeps the Interpol and federal police very busy.

    We have people working very hard and given nothing by the government as they want us, that can to work as long as possible to pay more taxes to pay for all the government spending to inside the country and help they give to outside countries so they don't have to pay us that become of pension age any money, coz they want to spend the taxes elsewhere.

    We have state police forces that are not enough, young people and women can not work home safe at night, without being attacked, raped and killed, mostly this happens in the cities.

    Our original beliefs, christianity, does very poorly here, as it was a Christian founded country, but due to political correctness, we can no longer teach it in public schools or local council areas, Christmas is be be called nd of year celebrations"" - thanks immigration and the pollies, that score points, yelling, multiculturism.

    So how come this is a 'first world country'? Do not believe everything you hear, this is not paradise.




    The goverment is just as corrupt.
