    If anyone is considering the move, Why not do a google search on hundreds of graduate nurses, educated in Australia with no jobs this year and even a read of the Australian forum where are few did not get work after graduation.I doubt whether its an emergency, other than it AHPRA asking for help with the amount of international nurses swamping AHPRA for registration.I usually employ nurses, but not at the moment, there are no jobs and I do not need to import nurses from Ireland either. My counterpart in a NSW hospital, reports the same, the jobs that were there are filled, in the hospitals and we are not allowed to sponsor unless it is a specialty position that has been unfilled for 6 months after advertising the position.Start reading the find print on the job advertisements all state that you must have work rights - no sponsorship.Nurses however from Ireland, the uk, Canada, south africa, singapore, USA, do not need sponsorship and therefore employers are more willing, if there is room to take them on for short contracts, which nurses from other countries cannot be employed.Thats a possiblity why they get work more readily.
    Geez, what do hundreds of filipino nurses wanting to work in australia have to do then? To bp or not to bp?

    Hi! I would like to ask you. maybe you can help me with this. My letter of eligibility will soon expire on April and I am about to take the course on feb. I tried asking my case officer for an extension but I am not that successful. I am very sad because I knew other were granted an extension. But it is very difficult on my part. Is it ok for me to attend the program,. What if i caompleted the program beyond the expiry date of my letter? Also, I would like to ask you if you did exit from Australia? is 456 visa only valid for 3 months the have to exit? because on your post you started bp last may. so you must stay only up to august then exit and then return again? Because you got your registration only last sept.... thanks for youe help.. I am really sad
    Hi leidanz, unfortunately I can't answer your question.
    Maybe you can ring AHPRA, not your CO, to ask.

    yes, I did exit Australia since I am on 456 and return again after a onth.

    For those confused about whether to declare their US licensure, I indicated that in my AHPRA application and the board didnt have any questions about it. You just have to request for a letter of verification from the US board you're licensed with. I think it's better this way, at least you got nothing to hide/worry about later on Goodluck!
    Thanks!

    Sad to hear this! The same situation applies to Aged Care too? or just for RNs undergoing the bp?
