    AHPRA doesn't have a specific format, but they have specific entries there that need to be included in the one you make. I remember seeing that from their site, although I suggest you check again.

    Wow, this new thread is 10 pages long already. Cioman, thanks for all the info

    hi! we almost have the same # of volunteer exp and ielts grade too! ahihi. did you really volunteer 5x/week for 1 year? so that would be 1920 hours (8hours x 5days x 4 weeks x 12months = 1920 hours) if my computation is correct. that's amazing!

    in your statement of service, what "role" is indicated? when i e-mailed AHPRA, 3 people replied. the first one is on leave, the second one said that "role" means if you are RN or EN, but the third one said that "role" means the job description itself. so which is which? (can i also see your SoS? ahihi, it's ok if you don't want to)

    you are so diligent! i only have 9 months volunteer exp but it's still continues so i think it'll reach 1 year come BP. but i'm too busy with facebook to attend everyday ahihi. maybe i'll ask them to "doctor" it since i'm not being paid. ahihi!

    btw, can i ask where did you volunteer? it's uncommon for hospitals to allow more than 3 months of volunteer work. but i think PGH has minimum of 6 months. and in ospital ng muntinlupa (hospital of muntinlupa), where i volunteer, it's unlimited. ahihi!

    whenever i think of going on volunteer duty, i feel lazy (because i'm not paid) just thinking of the pinoy henyo (guessing game) i have to do with patients who can't speak because their intubated, the suctioning, OF and "pukpok" or smashing (?) of tablets, be at risk of verbal abuse by doctors, and urethras that won't allow entry of catheters. ahihi!

    btw, i'm also looking for a sample CV, if you want, let's exchange our CV (minus the personal details for privacy purposes) so we can compare what's missing or what's not to put.

    hi everyone! i just want to clarify something. in the statement of service, the number of hours should be included if part-time only, otherwise there's no need?

    on the agos form , it states "be signed and dated by your employer (i.e. in the past 5 years) with a statement “this curriculum vitae is true and correct as at (insert date)” this really applicable? i mean i have several employers, do i go to every one of them? i am lucky then that i didn't work in other countries...

    hi jakey,

    in part 1 of this thread, there was a time when several forumers discuss this concern that you raise now.. after all inputs have been posted including the actual experience of one forumer who visited the ahpra office and personally ask this issue, the consensus among forumers was that indeed ahpra committed an error of posting such instruction and that as ive mentioned many times in this thread, employer will only sign your statement of service, not your cv.. but if you can do it, then why not..

    this is one of the matters that is really confusing due to present transition period.. so please also note that it is also possible that as of this point in time, they may have change their mind such that indeed they will require employers to really sign the cv.. but i bet they do not really require it, my bet..

    also in the previous pages, i have short comment on this matter...

    if there are other forumers who disagree with my answer above, no probs, i will not debate with you.. above is just an information i shared, take it or leave it, or research on it.. peace..

    good luck to your application..

    Hello nurses,
    << many thanks to cioman who is not only generous with his time and knowledge but is also a motivator to aspiring to-be OZ nurses... That should be how we Filipinos work together.. >>

    i agree with cioman94, all i did with the CV part was, made a CV and i signed it at the end part that it's true and correct. With the CV, i attached Statement of Service which was made and signed by my previous employer..
