Hello fellow nurses. I need some help with regards to application for APHRA. Anybody who knows where or how to start the application process? I've already read the application process in their website and I find it really hard to understand. It's quite complicated for me. Do I really need to send all the needed requirements by mail? The website said that the Assessment Fee is $220, Application Fee $160 and Registration Fee $160. Is the application fee costs that much? The registration period for the Nursing profession is 1 June to 31 May. And today is May 26. Do I have enough time to process my application? Thanks in advance for the suggestions and opinions.
It seems that AHPRA is going even more stricter nowadays and I believe because of the influx of nurses too. When I applied for AHPRA they didn't have any registration period yet that I know of because I applied last year October 2012. It would be very helpful that you read the thread on Meeting AHPRA's requirements here on this link: (http://allnurses.com/nurse-registrat...ts-759253.html
For the fee, yes you really have to pay them in order for your application to be processed. And when I applied I really have to send certified copies of my documents or requirements by mail. However the registration period you mentioned is new to me and I'm not sure if that is a new rule already with AHPRA.
