@RN in USA. I got my registration from AHPRA.. currently in Sydney.. will start work tomorrow actually.. You need to call them!! THey take FOREVER! I submitted my application in march.. didnt hear anything .. called them in june.. they said it hadn't even begun to be processed yet.. but that they would move it along... then i was told i needed to get a letter from my high school stating I was taught and assessed in english.. and then submit an outline of all my coursework.. and i was approved.. the first week of august. Hope this helps. Where are you looking to work in Oz?
Hi I'm a us nurse who has just moved to sydney I was offered a jOb at st George public hospital on 3e am A bit discouraged because it is far away from where I am living and it seems a bit underdeveloped compares to some of the hospitals in us just wondering if anybody has any knOwledge about the hospital would be much appreciated
Good to hear.. what type of ward did they place you in? I arrived in australia about 2 weeks ago.. currently trying to find a job.. i was offered a job through an agency over here healthstaff recruitment.. but for some reason its taking a long time for them to issue me a letter of offer.. i guess all the paperwork is taking longer then i expected. im eager to start working. .making money.. and see what australia has to offer.. so is it really that different over here?
@US2oz.. how is it over there? Were you able to find a job?
hey anne1, not sure the exact code but the application is for overseas RN. download the form.. and start working on obtaining all the documents it entails. no u do not need to take the ielts test. I had to send a letter from my high school stating i was taught and assessed in english.. and i was exempt. any other questions let me know... such hell ahpra was.. make sure u have everything EXACTLY the way they want it. good luck!
Finally got my letter of eligibility! Gave my notice at work.. not scary at all lol.. but a little anxiety feeled.. cuz now its all real! I have emailed a few people about jobs.. but i get a little anxious about that. Im going to be leaving october 11. Definitely keep me posted! Good luck!
hey us2OZ.. just wondering how you're going over there? any luck finding a job? Hope youre having a great time!
I just got the email form my registration officer.. my letter of eligibility will be coming soon!! Now everything else! Just need to tell my boss lol.
Just letting everyone know.. i have recieved my letter of eligibility.. and did not take the IELTS test.
good for you! have a safe flight and have fun!
now if i could only get this approval i would be going with you!
@US2oz.. dont worry about your visa.. as long as you got all your blood taken.. the medical exam you should hear within the next couple weeks.. after i had the medical part done, my visa was granted within i think it was 1-2 weeks.. such a quick and easy process it was! Yeah i emailed her today.. she told me she expects to email me next week with the outcome of my assessment.. i hope that outcome is YES approval.. if its not i think my head might explode! Good luck with everything and your visa.. we may be on the same flight together at this rate! Haha keep me posted.
@US2Oz.. dont know if you're reading this anymore .. but im getting really anxious my registration officer told me last tuesday that she got my last piece of information and was hoping to assess and reply to me as soon as possible.. now a week later.. i don't know what to do.. if i should email her agin.. or if thats just gonna annoy her.. this thing is going on 4 1/2 months.. i just want to know already!
Ok thanks good to know! I guess ill find out more soon enough. So annoying just talked to my case manager on tuesday (wed oz time) she said she FINALLy received the last document she needed (transcript of my clinical courses) on tuesday.. and she would assess them and reply to me as soon as possible.. Been waiting about 4 months... This is Crazzzy!
what kind of shoes do nurses wear? here i wear sneakers.. or crocs.. really easy to get around in and when your working fast!
