Hi everyone! I'm set to apply for registration to APHRA. I'm a nurse here in the Philippines and I'm interested to work in Victoria. I understand that registration to APHRA is the first step right? How long does it usually take before u get their decision letter? What does it usually say to a registered nurse applicant with more than 3 years experience in the Philippines?

I would really appreciate any input. I'm just starting with the whole process of trying to work abroad and need all the advise I can get. Thanks a lot.

Suggest you read the large thread that discusses this subject in the International forum where we ask that these type of questions are posted. The Australian/New Zealand forum like the Canadian, Philippine and UK are just for local nursing issues

My registration took 3 weeks and i'm a kiwi. It wasn't all bad news from what i gather from the other grads they didn't do paperwork properly etc. Are you in Aus? I went into the officeit was much quicker. I wouldn't recommend doing the online enquiry form that was replied to after i got my registration

HI Rach321,

Did you ever get your license from AHPRA. My application is being processed, I sent it in July 2011, I sent them everything they asked for, and I'm still waiting. Please let me know what worked for you- If you got in!

I submitted my documents last May 2012 then my LOE on the third week of June. Just over a month of waiting. I think it helps when one does a web inquiry every now and then about the status of your application.

I submitted my AHPRA registration just this month (OCTOBER 2012). Its to Adelaide. If I do get the acceptance letter, can I find work somewhere else other than Adelaide? I was thinking of Melbourne.
