    Hi ms. lani_g,

    Just wanted to ask if your AHPRA LOE also stated in the last paragraph this:

    "If we have not been notified that you have completed a course by <date>, your application will be deemed to have been withdrawn pursuant to section 80(5) of the National Law. Please be aware extensions beyond this date will not be granted."

    I read in previous threads (p. 21 of Meeting AHPRA requirements as an Intl Nurse in the Phils) that the LOE previously stated "if we have not been notified that you have commenced a course by 08/03/2013, your application will expire and become void and your incomplete application will be destroyed. extensions beyond this date will not be granted."

    Just wanted to clarify if your LOE is like mine or like the previous thread? Thanks so much.

    Hi mapie87. I was wondering if you knew personally somebody who was able to get in IHNA without the 2 year experience? I also have the same dilemma. I want to apply there but I only have one year and 8 months experience. Perhaps, they were able to accommodate applicants without the 2 year experience a few years back? Do you know of anybody who was able to skip that requirement recently? Thanks.
    i was offered a slot for april and i only have 1 yr hosp experience.. ^^

    Hi ELy_ana,

    My LOE is the same as yours. The first one that you wrote. But if you will request for an extension, it will be considered provided that you give them an explanation of your status. I already had an offer letter from a school when I requested for an extension because the end course date is 12 days beyond my original expiry date of the AHPRA letter. But if you don't have an offer letter from a school yet, I think they will not give you any extensions for that matter.

    That's really great mapie87! Do you have other work experiences besides the 1 year hosp experience (and did they ask for it?) Or are you a fresh grad/first courser and this was your first job? You see, I'm a second courser and my other work experience was not even related to nursing. Thanks.

    Thanks so much for that info ms. lani_g. It's very helpful. I'm a little relieved in knowing that. God bless.

    I am currently having my bridging program now at IHNA in Melbourne. It's a bit tough for me since everything is new and the health care system is completely different. For those who will be going to IHNA, all professors are fantastic and very intelligent. Make sure you study and practice before you leave.
    Thanks for the information. I'm also for IHNA intake..

    Hi molly_molly,


    Yes, I paid the $100 through credit card. Good thing I passed their interview. My money did not get wasted.

    Thank you for your kind reply lani_g85


    Will try my luck as welll. Been trying to find BP schools as I just got my LOE a week ago.
    Tried sending my application to AAON and Castlemaine but no reply so far.
    I reserved an August slot for Alpine Health though, they will still schedule me for interview.
    It's kind of tough to get into bp schools nowadays..


    May I know the intake dates of Mercy Health?

    Big thanks!
