    @ councilor28, i read the restrictions for student visa; it states there that if the student is to undergo less than 12 months of study, the dependent will not be allowed to do part-time work.

    i don't have the 'expertise' to give fool-proof pieces of advice, but from my experience with applying for eligibility from ahpra and from what i gathered in your post, my take is that since you are still planning for the october intake, why not do it the proper way and apply for eligibility first and then choose your school afterwards. you know, the time that you have spent since you laid your/your gf's plans of undertaking the IRON program, it would have been more than sufficient time for her to complete her requirements for AHPRA and to receive her eligibility.. that way she wouldn't have any conditions to think of after she finishes the program.. also, you would have to make sure that you may have your visa approval as well, there have been changes in some visa categories and you may want to browse over your chances of getting your visa as a common-law partner, as well as your restrictions (whether allowed to do part-time work or not) when you do receive one. good luck!
    yea we actually considered the iron program and it was perfect because there was a june intake.. right around the time I finish my term in office, however the iron has been filled up already since dec 2012 if im not mistaken.. iron is not only cheaper but also shorter, my reservation tho w the iron is the weather in Melbourne..

    and for the ahpra registration, the thing is as per unisa as ur school.. the proper way is to apply for registration when u get there as they don't require ahpra registration to go into the program, basicaly if you got the experience of at least 2 years and u have the money for the tf.. u can go. thats why we are torn between processing the ahpra registration and make use of the time we have til oct, or do as to what our idp agent has advised that we should go w the proper flow of the program to process her registration the moment she gets to oz.. any suggestions guys from ur experience? especially those unisa grads? tia!

    thanx emes, good thing tho is that arntp runs for 18 mos! hehe! technically il be allowed to work,.., I might be wrong w this assumptions but in the end it will depend upon the visa that will be issued to us..

    again, I might be wrong w these assumptions but hopefully il be able to share what will happen to us.
    I liked unisa, coz of a couple of things

    pros: you don't need to register w ahpra to enroll so theoretically if u have the money and u qualify u can go.

    it runs for 18 weeks so technically the dependent would be allowed to work which I think may be the big difference wether you sink or swim there.

    its in Adelaide which according to my friends there has almost the same weather here and much stable than the other territories plus the cost of living is lower as well wc is a huge plus!

    cons: it is much more expensive at almost 16k plus
    runs longer at 18 months


    feel free to let me know if there is something wrong with my infos or my assumptions, I wont be able to know not until we get there.. but what I know for fact is that altho they are in Sydney wc in turn has a highr cost of living, but I have a couple of friends that are doing well w their student visas not even nurses nor has any plans of getting sponsorship, but is able to make a good living,, all I want is for the gf to get a sponsorship, hopefully get a pr and ensure my little one's future.

    "its in Adelaide which according to my friends there has almost the same weather here and much stable than the other territories plus the cost of living is lower as well wc is a huge plus!"

    Stable weather!! Same as the Phills. Oh please have a look on a map, Melbourne looks at Adelaide to know what the next days weather will be. Choosing a BP school to the weather, when this is your future quite estounding.
    The arntp program is six months not 18 months. to have Phils weather Darwin, Cairns, Kunanurra, Broome are the best choices. Which have unstable weather, cyclones, tropical heavy rain etc.

    Adelaide also has a less population to the the other cities and has universities offering conversionn courses to overseas nurses and also has 3 universities graduating local nurse graduates therefore low chances same as unstable Sydney and Melbourne to find work.
    However yes, Adelaide less cost of living, but not by much, if you check out the rents etc

    "Stable weather!! Same as the Phills. Oh please have a look on a map, Melbourne looks at Adelaide to know what the next days weather will be"
    like i said, i could be wrong with the assumptions since im not there, and i just asked a couple of locals and they could be wrong too since your probably the weather man or something.

    " Choosing a BP school to the weather, when this is your future quite estounding."

    before you go around judging me, just so u know mr. guide, i have a bad allergic rhinitis and asthma, that is why i am particular with the weather. how can i be productive if i cannot even function well.

    "the arntp program is six months not 18 months" it runs 18 weeks plus a week or so, like i mentioned we already have an offer.. or probably they send out special 6 month versions just for "guides" like you.


    like most of the people who came here, we came here for help.. i was actually looking forward for your answers since you are the most active and i think everytime you answer, you actually help peope.. but i never came here to be judged and condescended... probably same as the people in this forum.

    just so you supposedly know more than the rest doesnt give you a license to talk down to people and give them attitude.. i have my own small company and had run a town with a population of more than a 100,000... but i had never talked down to a subordinate or constituent just because i am who i am.

    even if we brushed each other with the wrong foot, i hope you still continue answering questions and queries, because for every bit of answer you give may change somebody's life.... less the attitude of course.

    cheers!

    Hello guys. I'm collecting all the necessary papers to get assessed by APHRA probably next month. For sure one of you here knows about the immunizations required. I just want to know what kinds of vaccinations they require if there's any. I have already had opv, measles, bcg, dpt. Just the regular vaccinations from our city health I'd be glad if someone could share to me anything with regards to this matter.

    ahpra doesnt require the vaccinations you had but the school is and it depends on the school's checklist what they need you to submit.

    Hi mr.councilor, i had the same experience of getting that kind of "attitude" as well, some allnurses.com members who eventually became my friends, had the same feeling. I agree with you, no one has the right to talk down to people especially in this forum because we all came here to help and give pertinent information to all those aspiring nurses who intend to work in oz. I got some insulting comments from the same member just because of not getting an insurance while in Australia. But here I am, alive and healthy, with div1 registration and thank God I did not encounter any accident while in oz because i don't have any health insurance LOL. I'm glad prayers did worked. )

    Yes, it depends on the school but to save your time, you can actually have the basics like the mantoux test since it is required for every school i think. Get a dose of flu vaccine, hepa A 2 doses 6 mos apart, MMR 2 doses 1 month apart, hepa B 3 doses if your anti hbs count tells you to do so or get a booster for that and dTap adult dose 1 shot. By the way, have your mantoux test first before getting the vaccines coz sometimes it yields false positive reactions.

    I think we are pulled down because of our nationality. You see, even in forums discrimination exists.
