    HI! I'm a bit confused about ARNTP. I have 3 years gap in my work experience but I got an offer from UniSA for the ARNTP. I wonder if my 3 year work gap will be accepted by AHPRA for registration. I'm afraid money, time and effort will only be wasted for ARNTP with no assurance that I am eligible for registration even I finish the program. Can somebody tell me what should I do. Will I go for ARNTP? Do you have any idea how ARNTP will lead me to registration to AHPRA? YOur reply will be highly appreciated. Thank you very much.

    You will have to show AHPRA that you have had continued your professional development these past 3 years, but your other concern should be, what BP schools will accept such a long time out of nursing and how will employers see you?Unless you have had much experience in needed specialties such as theatre, ICU, and/or have post graduate degrees in these, employers especially hospitals will not look favourably on such a long break.
    Yes i agree

    I actually have my recent work experience in a polyclinic in Middle East but unfortunately I was not able to finish my contract. I worked for 1 year and 8 months,and it ended on December 2011. I don't know how will I prove AHPRA that I worked there,
    without certificate of employment since i did not finish the contract. Another thing is, will they accept work experience in a polyclinic?

    So, do you think I should not pursue with ARNTP? Thank you.

    As far as I know, ARNTP works the other way around compared to having a Bridging program. In BP, you will be assessed with AHPRA first. If you have an offer from UniSA then I assume that your experience passed the university's standard. Just try to clarify with your school that you won't be having problems with AHPRA upon registration after finishing your 5-6 month course.

    Good luck!

    Hello everyone, I just passed the NLE last July 2012, and I'm planning to have my IELTS exam on November.. I obviously don't have any hospital experience yet but I wanted to pursue further education in Australia.. Are they still accepting students without any experience? How long will I need to study there? Would it be 2 years? Hoping for a reply thank you..

    I submitted my application to etea last week of june, i guess, i forgot the exact date. Had my interview last july 10, letter of offer was dated july 11 and yet i received it july 16.. Since it was sent to my agent first and only forwarded to me. I paid the tuition afterwards.
    i see.. lucky you! thanks for the reply! do you have your visa already? i believe you will join the january 2013 intake. hope we could be classmates. anyway, may I know the name of your agency, if you dont mind?

    I've sent them several emails asking for update but they are not replying. I will call them tom.
    You paid the tuition fee but you still dont have the letter of offer yet? Give them a ring.
    maybe Ill just wait for them to release offer letters since i dont have a choice. they cant give it to me not until ANMAC will approve they're accreditation. Hope it will be real soon cos Im tired of waiting already. anyway, did you call them? how was your application to ETEA?

    It must be 3 years bachelor of nursing. However, to most universities, they have credit prior learning system which you can apply for to get a year or two less depending on the credit points you will get.. And then to most, tuition fees for international students vary from 25K to 29K AUD annually..
