Hi. I am new here. I don't know exactly where to go. I am a registered nurse here in the Philippines and I am interested in studying in Australia for a bridging course that will help me become a... Read More

    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 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 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 taxes to pay for all the centrelink benefits 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.

    Religion is dead 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.

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




    The goverment is just as corrupt.



    well, that's a vivid picture i must say...thanks.but still, many consider going to the Land Down Under despite this. i'm sure international nurses are also aware of this to some extent as they have experienced the same situations in their home land...some may even be worse...to think, corruption cannot totally be displaced.it only happens in varied intensities.

    Hi everyone!

    I am new here, so please forgive me if I say or ask anything out-of-the-norm.
    I have been a registered nurse since 2009 but have never done any hospital work.
    I have pursued my Master's degree tho. My grandparents (who live in NSW) are telling me to try and enroll in La Trobe University's IRON program. As far as what they have told me, La Trobe does not require any hospital experience I also validated this myself by checking their site (but if I am mistaken here, please do correct me). My problem now is with getting a letter of eligibility from AHPRA. If I am applying for AGOS-40 is it really required that I have a minimum of 3 months experience? Or can that be waived since I am going on a bridging course?

    Thank you so much for your response!

    Studying for your masters is also considered nursing experience, so if the course was equivalent to 3 months full time you will be eligible.

    Hello there! I lodged my application for CON last October but to my dismay, January intake is full. Also, they informed me that since I missed out for Jan intake, it does not automatically mean I will be for the next one which is in April. My AHPRA LOE will expire on June 2013 and I don't know if I can get an extension from them (Perth Office.) Now I really do not know what to do next since I already paid the TF which is 10,000AUD. Will I wait for CON's next intake or withdraw my application? Will I apply for other schools? (No more slots for January/Feb intakes atm...) HELP! :'(

    TIA..

    I had the same problem with CON! What I did is,while I am waiting for their availability of slot,I applied in IHNA,Victoria. You can make them assess your credentials and stuff without paying them. I suggest you do the same. And withdraw from CON when you already got your eligibility from your new school.

    CON have lots of applicants, so you need to be persistent in following up your application with them.

    What is your preference when it comes to school? In terms of location, tuition fees, etc?
