    Hi! I got my Letter of Offer now! it was sent to my agent. I am for January 2013 intake.. yipee!!! [/QUOTEHi I thought you said your eligibility letter will expire oct 27. Because mine will expire January 2013 and my case officer won't extend my eligibility letter if intake will be after the expiry date. So I'm taking the sept or October intake of etea. And I ask my case officer if it's alright if I finish my BP after expiry date. And answer is yes but not commence BP post expiry date. Just double check with your APHRA case officer to be xure before you pay for your tuition fee.
    hi! yeap. that's my big problem now. i was given 7 days to settle the payment for etea.. but then i still need to know if AHPRA will grant an extension to my LOE. i'm kinda worried, because it was stated in the LOE that we need to complete the 3 months BP before the LOE expires.. my agent called AHPRA this morning and sent them an email as well requesting for an extension.. no replies yet.. he sent my letter of offer (hard copy) to AHPRA through courier.. he also called ETEA ang asked about my case.. i dont know what happens after this.. i hope everything will turn out just fine.. will keep my fingers crossed..

    can someone clarify this for me please....


    APHRA will assess the application then makes a comment/suggestion then they will send it to NMBA...the NMBA then will decide if your eligible for registration or eligible for registration with exception (i.e have to take the BRIDGING PROGRAM....am I right on this???

    I was told that NMBA only have meetings once a month is this why it takes so long to process an application--- 2-3 mos.

    because I received an e-mail from APHRA it says---- MY APPLICATION HAS BEEN ASSESS AND THEY WILL SEND IT TO NMBA ON AUGUST 16. THEY WILL HAVE A MEETING THAT DAY AND I WILL BE INFORMED OF THEIR DECISION TEN DAYS AFTER THE MEETING ---

    is there anybody else here have the same experience...when I applied for registration in UK at the NMC I got my decision letter in a couple of months...why does it take so long in Australia...

    I actually had the same experience but I was too persistent with my AHPRA case officer that I was able to have my LOE extended. It was supposed to expire on June 2012 but it was extended until November 2012.

    Where did you lodge your papers? I lodged mine in Qld..

    hello nurses! I just finished my IELTS and I want to pass my docs to AHPRA, meantime,I have some few questions:

    1. those who have no hospital experience, can they apply for ahpra also?
    2. those who have experience but decided to resign does Ahpra require you to be currently working in a hospital while your papers are being processed?

    hope somebody can answer these...thank you!

    For those who applied for their visa already, after how many days will a case officer email you to have your medicals already?
