    What's AcFE take on their accreditation? According to AHPRA website, ran out in September?
    This is what i found on their website:The 2013 Intakes are subject to the approval of the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC). ACFE is seeking accreditation for the following programmes:-Initial Registration for Overseas Nurses (IRON) Registered Nurse and Enrolled NurseInitial Registration for Overseas Midwives (IROM) Registered MidwifeReturn to Practice (RTP) Registered Nurse, Registered Midwife and Enrolled NurseApplication for accreditation of these programmes is currently being processed.I will try to find out on Monday. I was offered to do a BP starting January 15. I'm currently in Sydney and moving to Melbourne for the course.

    I would not proceed to a school or pay out any fees, without them being accredited ''officially'' on the AHPRA website WHEN the course starts, or it could end up another registration problem as per another course, after you have finished with AHPRA.

    The accredited course list has been updated 2-3 times since september 30th 2012, 4 months ago and still no change in date and still no recognition of this on their website, ongoing does not mean they are accredited at this time. ANMAC state that no enrollments should be taken while a course is not accredited at the time of enrollment. Apparently these private school bridging courses are allowed to do as they feel.

    I find it incredible that all public school courses -unis-health services, have no problems receiving accreditation, within time and yet most of the private ones struggle. Wish the accreditation processes for them were available to the public, who are paying out large fees and always concerned re their accreditation status.

    To ishtin, It depends upon the case officer. I applied in WA got it in 3 months

    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
    Thankyou for your post. Are you still looking for work or found a job? Did you finish your BP in August"?

    At this time of the year, you are competing against all Australian new grads as well for work, plus the few hundred that have come from overseas for the summer.

    Good luck, keep us posted.
