    Does anyone have the immunisation requirements for UniSA?

    Is it this one?

    What documents will serve as evidence if I don't have my immunisation card from when I was younger?

    "Eligibility and the like". Have not changed if you have gleaned this information from previous threads - the only thing to add is it may now be difficult to get your eligibility and find a BP school and furthermore a job with no experience . As economic cutbacks have hit the Australian system, there are no jobs for local graduates.

    This situation has been for the past year or two and continues to get worse for nurses especially from overseas as they need a job for a visa to stay and work.

    There were reports that AHPRA were declining applicants with no experience. But your first action needs to be to pass IELTS 7 in one sitting even before you apply.

    thanks ceridwyn!

    1. Are you encouraging me to work as a nurse here in the philippines first to gain experience?

    2. Once I passed ielts and applied in aphra for eligibility (for BP), are there schools that accepts applicants that has no work experience?

    3. and when im done with BP and they send my qualifications to aphra, how long is the registration process to acquire my license?

    4. and when is the best time to apply for a visa? if i already have the eligibility from aphra to undergo BP?

    (I have such a long way to go but im not giving up!!)

    4. You cannot get a visa, if you have not found a job. The employer sponsors you for you to stay and work.


    You get visa to study when you have been accepted into a bp school.

    One of the bp schools of only two, that does except nurses with no experience and churned them out like no tomorrow's is yet to be recredentialled by ANMAC so there may not many schools left that take students with no experience if this school goes off the list.

    ..there has been problems with nurses with no experience and AHPRA are now looking at this. New Zealand do not except nurses with no experience and Australia will have to follow this.

    There are not many jobs for local new graduates due to cutbacks and employment freezes....you have no experience.....not many full time jobs available to an overseas nurse with no experience.

    So yes, I do recommend you get nursing experience at home first. Many newly registered nurses after BP schools are reporting less than 2 years experience, they are not getting interviews.

    So if you believe this will not happen to you and take a risk (do not take loans from companies out) I would suggest you get your IELTS quick smart and get an application into AHPRA would be your first thoughts as it is up to them what happens from there.
