    Hi Shandy012405, as I read your message you have hesitance and pessimistic mind when you said that AHPRA Vic will decline your request as you expected it to be. Did you write them your appeal or talked to your case officer? I have a strong feeling that if you'll write them and tell AHPRA that you've been accepted to BP which will end after your eligibility expires, AHPRA will grant it. I know many who've been in your situation and were indeed successful in trying. Maybe this is God's way of developing your perseverance and endurance, considering that a lot of challenges awaits us even after completing the BP. Just try it again, draft a good letter and pray. God bless on your endeavor...
    Hello Adel! Thank you for your inspiring message. I already sent an email to my case officer so many times but still she stick to what she said on her first response. I have also read from the previous post about many who were given an extension but no one has been granted from AHPRA VICTORIA. I have been so positive to pursue my dreams but it is inevitable to become weak sometimes. Good that we have all.nurses where we can find people who truely understand us in our quest to have a good nursing career..thank you, i wont give up not until i dont really have the time anymore.. Thank you once again

    Good day guys!

    I'm about to complete my requirements and perhaps submit it next week.

    Guys, i'm doing this without the help of any agency and i'm still confused with some of the process.

    Are these steps correct? cause this is what i plan to do. please enlighten me

    1. complete my requirements and submit it to ahpra
    2. wait for their approval?
    3. look for a school
    4. then apply for a visa

    another question is, what ahpra branch should i send my requirements and the best, also cheapest, school that i can enroll for BP once my application is approved?

    btw guys, it is only my supervisor who provided me the reference letter since my chief nursing officer and HR manager will not provide it since i was only with the hospital for a year and few months, will i encounter any problem with this?

    pls help me guys. thanks!

    yes, you are right in your process.
    your recomendation from your supervisor would be fine as long as she knows it because they might call your supervisor for assurance.

    After a week, somebody from IHNA will call you and inform you of some details about the available intake date. Then after that conversation, wait for few days or a week for your offer letter, accommodation, immunization checklist, course outline, and 456 visa checklist and form. Hope this helps.

    For NCLEX passers, is it better not to declare it in your CV (for AHPRA) to avoid being asked for a verification of licensure? Confused

    Hi fellow nurses! I'm looking for potential friends and classmates for the January IRON batch of AAON. It would be my first time to go out of the country by myself so I'm getting quite nervous, fidgety and excited all at the same time (and it's not even January yet!) I don't have any relatives from the land down under, so I figured it would be much easier if I already knew somebody prior to the start of the BP. I don't have a lot of posts yet so I can't give out PMs, but I hope to make friends with AAON peeps (AAON senpais, please give us your advise!)

    Hi everyone. I'm not quiet sure if you know or remember me.

    Anyway, I'll be starting my job as an Aged Care RN next week.

    I know you got a lot of questions.
    "Why aged care?", "Are there no Hospital jobs?" There are still employment awaiting for us in the hospitals but I am on a 456 visa and my current entry is about to expire, due to time and money constraints, I don't have the right to choose. To be honest, after I've lodge my visa, I got 4 invitations for an interview in public hospitals here in Aus but unfortunately I can't entertain them already.

    The real picture here is that there are a lot of vacancies here, as in hundreds, but not all are willing to sponsor for a working visa (which we all need except if you're a PR/citizen) consequently making it hard for us to gain jobs in our interested field. Even aged care facilities are not so keen in sponsoring anymore, that is why I still consider myself lucky. However, if you can wait, maybe you'll get what you like.

    They say it is a burden in Aged Care and our RN skills will be compromised.
    I don't know if that is true but what's important is that we give our sincere care to patients.

    Timeline:
    August 2011 - Applied for eligibility
    December - Received my Letter of Eligibility from AHPRA
    May 2012 - Started Bridging Program
    July - Done with BP
    Sep - Got my registration Number
    November - Offered a job
    December 12 2012 - Start job

    I am very anxious, actually. I don't have any idea about being an Aged Care RN but I know God knows I can do it because He will not put me here on the first place if I cant surpass this.

    Good luck everyone
