    Hi there! Thank you for the information that you have been sharing in this thread..Surely I've learned a lot about the bridging program and AHPRA.

    I have a question, I hope someone can help me... I am planning to take up BAchelor of Nursing in the University of Sydney, and I will be with my husband, how much do we need for the evidence of funds or the showmoney? or can we use assets like lands, cars and others for the Assurance of Support?

    Please help!

    Hi cioman,

    I think it's very nice of you spreading the information about working in Australia but I think too much of it would be easy feeding to them. I think sometimes people here try to just get the information here and do not research on it. Even about the bridging schools are still being asked when one can e-mail them right away or call them. It's so easy to do that if one has initiative. I find it very lazy to ask some easy questions when more than 80% of research are being provided by you. Two years ago these info were not available here and there are many of whom still managed to become a nurse back then.

    hi loveniedelchris!

    you can access info about the evidence of funds and living costs in this site
    http://www.immi.gov.au/students/_pdf...ving-costs.pdf

    About the Assurance of Support, I don't have idea if you can make use of assets but i have heard from my uncle that you can use real properties. Maybe other members here could help if they have the idea. I hope this is useful to you.

    God bless you on your application!

    Sydney university does not conduct a Bachelor of NUrsing as such, but Bachelor of Nursing post registration which is more on professional issues and research than teaching nursing as it encourages candidates to go on to Bachelor of NUrsing (Honours). Fees I imagine at this uni would be top dollar, courses that lead to registration in nursing are Masters as second course, but they do not conduct the straight BNurs anymore.

    This from their course guide:

    The faculty offers a Bachelor of Nursing (post-registration) course designed specifically for registered nurses whose qualification is either a certificate or diploma. The course recognises the prior learning and experience of registered nurses and therefore it does not lead to registration as a nurse.

    Thank you gemini_star for your observation.. I agree with you and your concern.. Actually, whenever i write something i always keep in mind that so-called "feeding" thing.. I hate that too.. However, i do make judgment call when there are times i do "feed" because in my opinion such information would entail "analysis" (something like that) that others may fail to get due to the "major size" of the subject.. If you notice, i would always tell them to read read read AHPRAs website or DIAC website... also i dont discuss further the details of each school, i just name them but dont give details, as you said it is up to them to email the schools..

    The reason i set up the information in page 01 because it would be tiring to re-type answers of common questions.. With page 01, i could easily say "please read page o1.. or page 02.." see, hehehehe.. im going to be lazy doing that.. hehehehhe....

    thanks and good luck...

    This is so alarming. Does it mean that post registration course doesn't make you eligible to become an AuRN? Because I just got accepted by Flinders to enroll in this course through IDP, I actually paid the initial deposit. And based from what I've read in their offer letter, completion of the said course will proceed to Nursing registration, they even mentioned about clinical placements. This is also the advise of the IDP councilor. Please somebody clarify this. Help!

    WHAT? Sydney University was mentioned, nothing to do with Flinders, if Flinders say their BN post grad course will lead to registration then it does.....Sydney university in their course guide their BN post grad does not lead to registration as their initial nursing qualification is a Masters in Nursing.
    A Diploma is lower than a degree and certificate lower again. If you do not have a degree then you cannot register as an RN and I imagine have to do about 2 years of uni.

    Flinders university is about 2.5 hours away by plane from Sydney:confused, nothing to do with Sydney uni?: I do not think Flinders even run a Master of nursing as an initial nursing qualification.

    @glioblastoma You keep saying that you want to marry an Aussie... but then again, gay marriages isn't really allowed here you know. hehe...
    i really thought @gliobastoma is a female...anyway, same sex marriage in australia is not yet allowed however, people like @gliob..has an alternative option.if so happened that @gliob met an aussie guy they can always apply for a registered partnership just like a "de facto" relationship and that aussie guy can sponsor @gliob..to come to australia and be with him so @gliobastoma, you have got an option girl! hehe

    by the way nurses, i just saw filipino nurses today at The Alfred Hospital where im currently working, they had their orientation and all of them came from the UK working as UK nurses of course, theyve decided to transfer to australia as the cost of living in the UK is really high...i was just thinking how cool it would it be if it was you...i hope this will serve as an inspiration to you, dont stop applying, there are a lot of vacancies out there its just a matter of perseverance
