    Hi everyone, can someone give me a rundown on how to process the Bridging Program in Australia? I'm a newly grad and unfortunately doesn't have any working experience yet. Honestly, I don't know where to start so I'm crossing my fingers if anyone of you can help me with this. Thanks in advanceCan someone post a brief step by step (IF that's okay with you) on how to begin the Bridging Program in Australia? All I can read in the previous posts is that most of you have already their visa and I'm having a hard time to cope up (Coz I'm really out of place -___-)PLEASE, help me. I don't know where to start and I really want to grab this program. Btw, I'm a fresh graduate and no working experience yet. Is that even possible that I can be part of the bridging program? Thanks
    You will have difficulties finding a bridging program and an employer to sponsor a job for you.Is there a way of getting experience in your own country first.Australian new grads are finding it hard to get first job and are now moving to wherever they can find work.

    Is being a volunteer will count as an experience? I'll probably start on February.

    thanks chelsea for that input, would you say that after BP one can get a job after four(4) months max on the average? granting that applicant is not too picky....
    I really don't know. Hopefully, it would be like that. Some of those people I've, during the job hunting, are getting depressed because of the long wait. Let's just hope and pray that after doing the BP, we'd be lucky to get hired. The money we will spend is a very huge amount so we have to really find a job.

    Hi Chelseaxyrene,

    Thanks for your info. It has been an encouragement. Could I ask, when did 3 of your friends graduate and where did they study BP?

    The money for BP and cost of living is really such a big amount. I'm planning to go to Australia by student visa. What kind of visa did your friends have?

    Are you done also going to Australia soon?

    My advice to you guys is to really accumulate a lot of experience before coming here because when it's time to get a job, you have to compete with hundreds of other nurses. Get at least 2 years experience if you can because that's the requirement of most employers when it comes to hospitals
