    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.
    Hi ms. annie, would like to ask. For NSW they are requiring only these: dTpa one shot, Hepatitis B, MMR 2 shots, Varicella 2shots, TB - TST. Which state requires Hepa A? or it is indeed necessary?

    I will finalize my immunizations before I go to australia this June and am curious what else would I need? Also Mantoux is same as TST? or better get mantoux? Where did you get yours?

    Regarding insurance, what kind of insurance did you have? or did not? Did you have health insurance? Travel insurance? Lonsdale isn't requiring any. They said its up to us if we will avail one. For police clearance, they also said that they will help us get one once we're there.

    Thanks so much!!

    How's the job hunting going?

    And also, what airline did you use to go to Australia?

    I was required to get hepa A vac during my BP in ETEA.. i am just not sure in other school..

    Mantoux is same as tst.. Got mine in the hospital where i worked before..

    Health insurance. I thought id be needing it during my visa application but i was granted with visa even without it. School told us to get one for the clinical placement but i think its up to student if they want to avail. In my case, i did not.. And fortunately, i finished everything without it.

    Police check. School gave us the website and we did everything by ourselves.

    Job hunting. Received a call from a recruiter so I just have to follow up when i come back in oz.

    Airline. AirAsia in Clark Pampanga.

    OK guys enough. We are not saying not to dream but please be aware that things are changing and things are getting tighter due to the way things are happening in the world. Many countries are beginning to put numbers on immigration and I have seen this here in Canada where I have emigrated to. This is regardless on where you are from. We are also seeing changes with some of the nursing boards/councils if from certain countries due to experiences that have been had so don't blame this all on the receiving country but on your fellow countrymen who may have done or said things that have now impacted you and your journey

    Hello i just became a member of this site. I was wondering where I could read comprehensively about the Australian Registered Nurse Training Program (ARNTP). Does this course really require 2 years hospital experience? And after you graduate, can you work right away or can your visa be extended just until you find work as an RN? Any reply would be greatly appreciated. =D

    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. )
    good for you, positives had been in short supply lately.. you may not be there yet but at least your getting there! got a question tho, after u finished bp, how long did it take u to register?

    and so basically ur back home right now while job hunting? why did you have to come back home? did ur visa expired? thanx!

    yea, it requires you 2 years of experience to qualify, and of course straight 7s with ur ielts exam. i suggest you call idp manila to get a sked for a counseling, theyd be able to help a lot.

    I finished the BP last Mar 15 then AHPRA received my documents last Mar 22. I received the registration on Apr 2.. 12 days to be exact but if I were to remove the weekends and holidays because its Holy Week then,i think they processed mine for only 5 days. so i already have my registration before i went home in the Phil.

    I am on multiple entry 456 visa which is valid for a year, so i have to exit every 3 months. I am still here in Manila right now but i will be back in Melbourne on Apr 25 to concentrate on job hunting.

    HI davinder,

    I am also for June intake Lonsdale/Alpine. I availed their accommodation because sephine also availed it and according to a source who went to alpine, it is quite hard to get accommodations there.

    Did you get your visa yet? May I know your email so I can email you directly?

    Thanks!
