Thanks Lee86. When did they contact you for the payment? My friend told me that the amount was deducted last October 28 and ever since I didn't receive any confirmation from AHPRA. Did it take them that long also to notify you? I passed my papers last October 7 and no email was yet sent to me. huhuhu. Just getting worried about the time that I could use in applying for schools.

I think WA has many applicants already because the applications that they are processing now are those dated august 2011. I passed my application August 18 and they replied august 23 then I received a receipt of application august 29 from there I have not received a notification yet. But my friends who applied on the same month were already notified that their papers were assessed and for final assessment of the board. I am hoping to receive the same email next week. You can send an email enquiry to AHPRA and ask them for updates. Patience... Patience ... :D we really need a lot of this

Ishtin, since the credit card you used was been deducted so it is the best time for you to ring them for you to verify if they receive it and why have you not been notified thru email.. Most of the applicants, if not all, has been notified every time they are being assessed already. You can ask them politely and they will help you about your queries. :)

after more than 3 months of waiting, AHPRA ACT sent me an e-mail requesting for more documents.

one of the documents they wanted me to submit is a Professional Reference from my current nursing supervisor. This is not hard to do. I just don't know if others were required to submit this document, too.

The other documents they are asking are kind of confusing. They asked me to submit a:

-correctly stated Statement of Service. I know I submitted this one and I checked it before submitting just to make sure it's in agreement on what the board is requiring.

- certificate of registration status from all the boards I have previously held registration. I don't know if they are missing my documents or overlooking it, coz I even clarified it twice (thru e-mail and phone) if they received my registration certificates and they said yes.

Anyway, I emailed my case officer to clarify these things. Hopefully I'll get a positive feedback.

God bless to all applicants.

btw, can someone please interpret this for me?

A correctly certified copy of the Initial Registration Certificate from the Country in which you Qualified as a Nurse.

because that's one document that AHPRA is requesting. If that's the first nursing license I ever had, then I already mailed it along with my application.

I think that's the PRC certification as a registered nurse. The one that looks like a diploma.

If sending a certified copy, it should have the following written on the copy

I certify that this is a true and correct copy of the original document

Thanks for all your responses.

I am not registered with PRC / Philippines. My initial nursing license is here in the USA. As with the initial registration certificate, ALL the BON's that I am registered or previously held registration has submitted my license status directly to AHPRA. And all documents that I included in the application had been certified according to their rule.

Is bank telegraphic transfer similar to bank draft? or wire transfer? How did you guys pay the tuition for La Trobe? I'm having a hard time because I can't pay thru credit card for some reason (and it's the only mode of payment I'm familiar with)

A telegraphic transfer and wire transfer is the same. A bank draft is the same as a manager's cheque or cashier's cheque. I have not used wire transfer before but have used international bank draft. They basically issue you a cheque in the currency of the country you'll be paying it for (AUD).

Here's a link of pros and cons of either

Where did you study nursing? For them, initial registration usually means registration where you completed your nursing education.

Hey.. I am for ltu may intake and i paid via tt/wt.. U can go to any bank wherein u have funds and then tell them that u have to do telegraphic transfer. U need the details written on docs sent by ltu.. U have to fill up forms and then pay necessary transfer fees..
