I think by April we should be able to pass all parts of the exam. Because they will no longer offer any make-up modules. I do not understand what you mean by being "denied forever", but if your apprehensions are whether you can still apply after the National Registration comes up, then I'm quite positive that you will still be able to lodge a new application. That said, you should know by now that any new programs offered after the current one (CAS) expires, will not necessarily be the same or even somewhat equivalent. Most probably all applications for Division 1 nurses in the future will be in the form of "conversion courses" wherein you will have to study for at least 2 semesters. On one hand, they could also offer bridging programs such that you will only have to undergo 10-13 weeks of theory and clinical placement, and then be assessed for competency. However, just be prepared because the trend seems to lead towards the former than the latter. And both these paths are rather expensive compared to QNC's CAS.

So if I were you, if ever you get your approval to sit the part a exam come April, try your best. While waiting you should already be studying hard for it. Follow the suggestions of those who have already taken the tests, like what UR49 mentioned... " focus on the legal issues, professional organizations, especially the Code of Ethics, Delegation of task."

Good Luck.

Thanks a lot for the helpful information!

That's what my concern is all about. If ever I won't get 80% in all four modules of the part A exam, then I won't be able to proceed for part B. As it is said, CAS will no longer offer make-up modules.

Hi! Does anyone know if, when I do submit my application to the QNC now and get assessed AFTER the CAS has expired, would such results still be useful under the new national registration? I was advised to apply now (despite the impending change in rules), so that when the new system takes effect, and I would have been already been assessed, I would be ready to comply with the new requirements for registration whether it's a bridging course or university enrollment. But then again, I won't apply now if assessment results released before July 2010 would be irrelevant under the new rules.

Any news/ info on this, or thoughts perhaps?

I think there must be a way that the new rules will somehow accommodate those who are still applying. Because if they don't, they should stop accepting until July 1st. I don't think I wont be able to go through the CAS but still thinking positive about their assessment. Go ahead and pass the requirements. There is nothing to lose.

Hi, Haoyin!

A recruitment agency advised me of such, so I'm not confident about this information. I looked it up on the QNC website and couldn't find anything about the council no longer accepting applications. I don't know if I just wasn't able to explore the site properly, as I was in a hurry then. Besides, I'm thinking that if there really were such a notice, it would be explicitly indicated in the homepage of QNC website. I didn't find any.

What do you think?

I thought so, too, gemini_star. QNC knows that a lot of potential applicants, both Australian and foreign nursing grads, visit their website all the time, and they can't miss on a very important information such as this. So yes, I think (and hope, of course), that eligibility results for applications submitted before July 2010 would still be valid under the new registration system. I just wish QNC were explicit in saying this. :-)

It would be better to ask them. Try giving them a call or perhaps they have an email address where you can ask them about such. And post it here for everyone to know.
