Though I am a CALI passer so I just explained about needing the SSN, and attached the letter (informing me of passing the NCLEX) for support. No question asked.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
- 0Dec 4, '12 by adel0807Quote from glitzdelightThank you glitzdelight for sharing this wonderful news. This is inspiring. God bless.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.
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

- 0Dec 4, '12 by aubreyRQuote from glitzdelightHi glitzdelight! In my case, I do have my BON ID/license as I have an SSN. Do you think it would still be better for me to declare my NCLEX license? I'm really apprehensive about the length of time it might take for the Cali BON to mail the verification to Oz. Where did you enrol for your bp btw?I declared it. Though I am a CALI passer so I just explained about needing the SSN, and attached the letter (informing me of passing the NCLEX) for support. No question asked.
