TOPIC:

o Australian Immigration and Visas ( basic information )

o ANMC vs. AHPRA

As a registred nurse, you can stay/live/work in Australia under the following situations/visas:

1) As a tourist

2) As a student, or as a BP enrollee (to later be registered as nurse in Aus.)

3) As a sponsored employee via 457 (working) visa

4) As a PR/permanent resident via Skilled Migration scheme

5) As a PR via ENS/employer nomination scheme

6) As a PR via RSMS/regional sponsored migration scheme

For details of various visas, please check www.immi.gov.au ..

Australia wanted that all nurses who want to apply for migration are qualified/skilled, meaning they do not want to accept retarded nurses, for obvious reasons. So, if you want to apply for migration/PR, you need to pass through the ANMC which will disapprove/approve you by releasing a "clearance/assessment" that you are qualified/skilled.

ANMC does not issue nursing licenses..

AHPRA/NMBA is responsible for registration and regulation of nurses.. They do not care about your migration..

For nos. 1 - 3, you are NOT REQUIRED to pass through the office of ANMC.. BUT if you want, yes you can go through the ANMC and apply for "assessment", then after receiving your assessment, you present it together with other documents to AHPRA as you apply for registration.. In effect, you choose to deal with 2 govt. agencies..

For nos. 4 - 6, you MUST pass throught the office of ANMC because you will need the "clearance/assessment" as an attachment to your application for permanent residency..

Note:

Situation no. 1

- Example Mr. Haoyin will apply for permanent residency, he will pass through ANMC, but the process is cheaper, faster and easier because he already has an Australian RN license.. He does not have to worry because his "clearance/assessment" will definitely be released mainly because he is already an Aus. RN..

Situation no. 2

- Ms. Xyz who does not have an Aus. RN license, would apply for permanent residency, he will pass through the ANMC, but the process is more expensive, longer, and tedious (because you will have to submit many many many school documents).. After receiving ANMC clearance/assessment, and later if she is granted permanent residency, then she will arrive in Australia, well, she cannot yet work as a RN because she does not have Aus. RN license, she must apply at AHPRA and undergo BP..

Good luck..

@ cioman: thank you for clarifying AHPRA vs ANMC

Hi there! Thank you for the information that you have been sharing in this thread..Surely I've learned a lot about the bridging program and AHPRA.

I have a question, I hope someone can help me... :rolleyes: I am planning to take up BAchelor of Nursing in the University of Sydney, and I will be with my husband, how much do we need for the evidence of funds or the showmoney? or can we use assets like lands, cars and others for the Assurance of Support?

Please help!

Hi cioman,

I think it's very nice of you spreading the information about working in Australia but I think too much of it would be easy feeding to them. I think sometimes people here try to just get the information here and do not research on it. Even about the bridging schools are still being asked when one can e-mail them right away or call them. It's so easy to do that if one has initiative. I find it very lazy to ask some easy questions when more than 80% of research are being provided by you. Two years ago these info were not available here and there are many of whom still managed to become a nurse back then.

hi loveniedelchris!

you can access info about the evidence of funds and living costs in this site

http://www.immi.gov.au/students/_pdf/student-living-costs.pdf

About the Assurance of Support, I don't have idea if you can make use of assets but i have heard from my uncle that you can use real properties. Maybe other members here could help if they have the idea. I hope this is useful to you.

God bless you on your application!

Sydney university does not conduct a Bachelor of NUrsing as such, but Bachelor of Nursing post registration which is more on professional issues and research than teaching nursing as it encourages candidates to go on to Bachelor of NUrsing (Honours). Fees I imagine at this uni would be top dollar, courses that lead to registration in nursing are Masters as second course, but they do not conduct the straight BNurs anymore.

This from their course guide:

The faculty offers a Bachelor of Nursing (post-registration) course designed specifically for registered nurses whose qualification is either a certificate or diploma. The course recognises the prior learning and experience of registered nurses and therefore it does not lead to registration as a nurse.

Thank you gemini_star for your observation.. I agree with you and your concern.. Actually, whenever i write something i always keep in mind that so-called "feeding" thing.. I hate that too.. However, i do make judgment call when there are times i do "feed" because in my opinion such information would entail "analysis" (something like that) that others may fail to get due to the "major size" of the subject.. If you notice, i would always tell them to read read read AHPRAs website or DIAC website... also i dont discuss further the details of each school, i just name them but dont give details, as you said it is up to them to email the schools..

The reason i set up the information in page 01 because it would be tiring to re-type answers of common questions.. With page 01, i could easily say "please read page o1.. or page 02.." see, hehehehe.. im going to be lazy doing that.. hehehehhe....

thanks and good luck...
