Are you still going to pursue BP with them? I just got a letter of offer from them, not sure if I'm going to enroll with them.
- 0Feb 7, '13 by achiever34Hi, I would like to ask for some advice. My nursing experience (paid+ voluntary) is still valid for AHPRA application (because it's within 5 years), but I am no longer practicing as a hospital-based nurse since '11 due to unfortunate event (cutting employees whose contract will end). I've been doing medical-related work since. I understand that BP schools require 2 years experience and 12 months recent practice. If I go back to hospital most probably it will be as a volunteer nurse. I've also read that there are some schools that do not require recency of practice, but it is not in the state where I plan to lodge my application (because that's where I have a support of place to stay). Also, I understand that even if you completed the BP and registered eventually, experience is a must in job applications but even if I start applying in hospitals now, I won't earn the 2 years paid experience that schools require. My dream is to become a nurse in Australia like you guys, I really have a heart to take care of people, patients always say that to me. The most clear thing to do is to go back to hospital, but I won't get paid (even if you like your job but your family won't be eating that's a serious issue) and cannot be used as an experience for BP schools and even for job applications. I feel that opportunities had passed already, that I should have applied when I was a nurse back then and now I am too old to start volunteering again and wait to be hired and then apply to AHPRA. If I gained the 2 years experience, 2 years from now, there's a possibility that policies will change again from nursing council to BP schools to visa to job opportunities just like in NZ. Please give me advice, should I pursue sending my documents to AHPRA? Good luck to all, thanks in advance.

I think I will pursue my application, it's never too late. Pray for me!
