    I know of 3 nurses who are desperate for work and are borrowing from family and friends back in the Phillipines just paying the loans back and wanting to return to Australia cannot afford airfare cannot afford to live on return to Australia to look for work. They have applied for immigration visa as there is no work for generalist nurses for sponsored visa.

    Hi guys! This is my first post on this thread. I googled and found this when I was researching more credentials on Philman and AG Finance.
    I attended an orientation held in Cebu last week. I'd say there was much information being held back. I came to the orientation to know about their loan assistance. The AHPRA and IRON school I am well aware of how to do it.
    When asked about financial assistance, they couldn't answer any. (How could they not know, they have been in this business for quite some time!) They said they do not do the finance thingie, it's the AG. Luckily enough, the brochures handed out had AG Finance's contact #s. So my father and I tried to contact them. I understood how it was not proper to disclose financial matters on text. So, a few days later AG sent me email of the requirements assuming I was done with AHPRA. Again, questions regarding interests, how much to pay, when to pay back, etc were all being held back. It's crazy. How can one decide to sign up with them if he does not know the risks entailing to availing such huge amount of loan!
    Looking at the comments on this thread, I think it is not probably worth it with this agency...
    Or would anyone want to disprove?

    Is renal nurse in demand in Australia? I'm planning to enroll for a hemodialysis training and work for one year here before applying to AHPRA.

    Not if you have only 1 year experience, new sponsorship new rules, locals have to be employed especially new graduates if the job entails a nurse with little experience. Even in specialist areas.

    You would be luckier to apply for independent visa and then you an shop around more and job does not have to be full time work.

    Hi. I am a newbie here doing some research and reading blogs for additional knowledge. Hoping you guys, my collegues would help me on my future career.
    i would like to ask if your nurse experience in saudi arabia would be credited or considered when u apply to australia. i mean, does the nursing council would honour your experience as a nurse in saudi? i heard that its least chance to get there when uve worked in saudi. how true is that.
    thanks! Godbless you all

    Does any body know if Philman will be asking any collaterals? like land titles or any property as collateral?

    I am an RN with 2 years experience in Emergency Department? what are my chances in getting a job after the Bridging? and after the bridging, is it easy to convert the student visa into a working visa? thanks guys

    I would just like to ask if it is possible for you to apply for a full time position while you are ongoing with your bridging program? is there a great chance of you being hired by an employer for a full time position before your visa expires? thank you. ^_^

    To Ceridwyn or Silverdragon: Please give me an honest advise. I have 10 years hospital experience and I'm contemplating on pursuing my australian dream through Philman because I have no financial means on doing it on my owou n. I am aware of the interest rate but still, I may be willing to go for it because in return, I might be able to acquire permanent residency which I believe will greatly benefit my kids. How is the job market for nurses in australia today? Do you think it would be too risky for me to push through? Please help me decide.

    I am in Canada so know nothing about the job market but reading some of the posts it isn't good especially if sponsorship is required but a lot I imagine will depend on where in Australia you are looking. Having experience in my opinion should help
