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 registered nurse there. I need some help on looking for a good school that offers a bridging course.
My aunt told me that a friend of her friend just went to AU to take up a test and in 6 months she's there for a bridging program. and I have this friend who has a friend who became a registered nurse in AU in 6 months time too. This agency is offering me to study for a certificate III aged care with occupational english test for 46 weeks in Einstein College but it costs too much. So now, I am trying to look for a school where in I can apply by myself and hopefully get in. I am hoping I could leave for AU this June 2011. I am a bit lost on what to do.. Can you help me please? Any suggestions?
Please help me. THank you very much.
(Sydney area would be better since my parents are more familiar and in favor of that place.. though other cities/areas will be great too)

You can try to contact The Bridge. I believe they have the lowest cost in the market and all my friends were already sent by them either to the United Kingdom or to Australia.

...and having certificate 3 in aged care does not give you rights to get sponsorship for a visa to work as a personal care assistant....these jobs are not on the list of needed workers! Rn or RM's only! unless you have permanent residency! You cannot work in Australia if your occupation is not on the list!
Here is the link, no aged care workers.., no spons0rship after study, n0 pr.
Alth0ugh if y0u are fr0m c0untry that has recprical agreements y0u can have h0liday w0rking visa in this 0ccupati0n f0r a sh0rt time, but als0 d0es n0t lead t0 sp0ns0rship 0r permanentt residency.
