Hi. I would just like to know if it really is a requirement for filipino registered nurses to undergo a bridging course? You see, my boyfriend is a nurse in the Philippines. He's been working as a registered nurse there for over 2 years now. I just recently moved to Vicotria, Australia. He is thinking of moving here too. Recently, he applied for registration at the Nursing Board of Victoria(NBV). And we also found an agency who can help sponsor him going here..so we're just waiting for the NBV registration. Ive been going over the website of NBV, and I dont see anything about a bridging course. I also asked my friend in Canberra(who knows a filipino nurse who migrated from the Phils last december) if he had to undergo a bridging course, he said no. all his friend did was take the ielts exam, apply for registration at the nursing board of NSW, and found an agency that sponsored him. I'm really worried about the bridging course..its really expensive. Hai..it might be much longer than I thought before I see my boyfriend again. I would really appreciate your help and your reply. God bless.
what if i failed, is ok to do it all over again??
