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

    Anywhere would do except for the TF part.. i cannot afford ETEA's TF.. I am also thinking about my Ahpra LOe's expiry. I am hoping to get into a program before June 2013. ... Do you know someone who keeps on asking COn abt his/her app then it was granted?

    You try to apply at IHNA, AAON, LTU, etc.. There are lots of schools out there.. When is the expiry of your eligibility? You need to find a school with an earlier intake because LOE should be valid until the end of your course. And until you apply for registration..Or if not, you may ask for an extension of your eligibility from AHPRA, from the state where you lodged our application. I had the same situation with you because i tried applying at CON before. They have lots of applicants because their tuition is the cheapest.. I keep on asking about the stAtus of my application but they cant offer any slot, they alwAys tell me to wait, wait til next week, wAit til next month, wait for a slot, and so on..i just got tired and gave up con..

    I reckon that it doesnt matter if what nurse job you do as long as you practiced as a nurse. I know some people who worked as an Call center agent nurse but she was still approved by APHRA and the school. I suggest you go to IHNA one of the cheapest in victoria. BUt make sure you always call them or email them, and pay ASAP if they asked you too. Take it easy buddy!

    Has anyone noticed all threee ACFE, expired 30.9.12, IHNA expires 30.11.12 and ETEA - 30.11.12, for the their bridging programs when all the other courses are already been given 1-3 years creditation.

    I jut wish the ANMAC would just announce what is happening and the reasons why it is by a month by month creditation.

    It is not fair that these schools are taking applicants and money for next year and no word from the creditation agencies, except a changes in a list on the bridging schools with AHPRA, no announcements no explanations!!!!

    WHAT IS HAPPENING! can anyone enlighten us!

    I'm for January IHNA. School keep saying that it will come through or it has, what is the truth?

    Sorry, with all this worry I meant to say I was ETEA bound in January.....anyone else for ETEA for 2013.

    According to ANMAC schools are not to advertise, enrol or take money if they do not have accrediation.

    Yep, same link and still all three program's are either out of date or soon to be out of date and no announcement or advice on any of their websites....
    Click on the link saying 'details' so you get the full picture - opens up more information and gives the finishing date for accreditation with each of the schools.

    Think we have been had.

    Hi, I cannot do private messages as yet....Telling the school about AHPRA showing their accreditation is running out, is not the answer, we need to know what is happening....what is the problem....is it easily sorted in the next month or so.. Otherwise let us know and we will look elsewhere for a school.
    Still nothing on their website to explain and help us relax.

    Still no answer from emails.

    It is pretty clear in AHPRAs list....they were allowed to run 2 courses with lots of feedback to AHPRA for October and November cohorts, then their accreditation was to cease.
    Do you think it is another administrative mistake?
