    As I said, if you have no experience.....what can you offer the Australian community, that a local cannot...unless you are networking with other colleagues.. in this is known to be happening...you will not be offered a sponsorship,I you have specialised in the much needed areas, such as ED, theatre-these nurses are snapped up, and icu, you have much more chance of gaining a sponsorship.If general med/surg.....not sure.....plenty of locals with these quals and experience.Number one, must have experience...if you have 1-2 years in the specialities you should have many opportunities for work.yes the wheels have fallen off the 'lets go to Australia bandwagon' for nurses to first gain experience, even in aged care.
    Oh . I am s bit discouraged with this but thanks for updating. You are from which place. I plan to go in Perth and i am even willing to risk my position as staff nurse here in Singapore for the dream to work in Australia. I am from NICU--- Regarding Philman, they don't accept once you have LOE already ha?!!

    hello forumers. i'm also actually planning to get assitance from PhilMan (and with their associated financing agency) as I don't have enough funds to support my future studies in Australia. Is there anyone here who's currently tied up with the agency and the financing firm who can enlighten me up with their conditions? From the start up to the very recent post in this thread, I noticed that no one has really explained how things will work once one will avail of the "package" being offered by PhilMan.. I'll leave my email add here: zarmp48@gmail.com

    TIA for those who will take time in answering my query. Godbless.

    My sister underwent the bridging program in aus under philman and loaned money from AG finance last january. Loaned money was more or less 1M pesos and the interest was almost the same amount thus the amount to pay was doubled. Lawyers from aus were actually mocking at them because the interest was so high and were wondering why they took that offer. They are having a hard time finding work since they still have to wait for their transcript and license to be released (around 1 month for the licensing) while their student visa will expire soon (3 months for the bridging program and 1 month extension). Upon asking help from philman they were told that they ARE NO LONGER EXPECTED TO GO BACK IN THE PHILS. They were abandoned. They have to either enroll in a short course (hence more money to shell out) for extension of student visa or apply for tourist visa (both will entail shelling out money again). AG doesnt want to lend money anymore and so they have to get the funds on their own. By june, they should pay the first installment of their loan in AG (100k plus) so they couldnt afford to be jobless by that time.

    Philman's work is done after they sent you to australia, you will no longer be their responsibility once you stepped out of the phils. So if i were you, think twice before you apply with this company.

    How sad for our fellow nurses and Filipinos to be exploited like that for business gains. Were they asked for any collateral, I mean how were they loaned with such huge amounts? It's hard to pass judgment when you know one is so hopeful and desperate at the same time that any help, ludicrous as it may be, becomes a source of relief and optimism. I hope that our fellow nurses may be able to find agencies and consultants who do not cause them great burden and who will be sincere in bringing them to a better welfare.
