Hello there fellow nurses. It's been nice hearing your stories and experience of applying for BP here in OZ. I' am scheduled for an interview in IHNA on 21st of March, anyone who can give me pointers in passing the interview? (my anxiety level is on heaps :bugeyes:) And how long does subclass 456 take? I' am currently here in OZ in student visa and I'm not really sure if I should continue my studies in Uni or go home and prepare for the requirements needed for the 456. Thank you for your advice! :)

Hi everyone,

is it fine to file for a visa first before applying for the school?the reason why i would like to do that is because i will be taking a loan to pay the tuition fee. hence id like to make sure i will get a visa before processing the said loan.

no matter how i like to back read, this thread is quite too long already. after 2yrs of working as an RN here in the PH, i suddenly got interested with australia since i don't want to work in middle east countries.

I've read in other forums that if I have a work experience, the bridging program would only take 3-6mos, correct me if I am wrong, I maybe read it wrong, and for those who doesn't have any work experience it will take 2yrs.

I'd like to clarify this matter with you guys. Also I would like to ask, how do you process your papers, is it with IDP in Makati? Lastly, for those who are already in AU or those who have any idea, could you kindly give a breakdown or at least an estimated price range that will cost me in this application.

Thank you very much.

I think if you meet the minimum requirements (training, experience, IELTS), then your BP is just like everybody else (3 months? I think). I don't know how it is to those without experience, but I have a friend without any experience and was advised to take a 1 year "conversion" program. But that was more than 2 years ago when nursing boards were governed by each state.

to start the process, please visit AHPRA's website: the requirements and steps are stated here.

Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia - Home

if you haven't taken an IELTS exam, then that's one of the first things you should do.

Registration application is less than US$500. Bridging program, I think, is AU$10,000 on average.

HI kristine25 . .Unfortunately, you need to have all 7 in IELTS in one take. .AHPRA needs one test report form with all 7 in all areas . . . But you can repeatedly take the exams until you achieve the 7 minimum band score needed in AHPRA . God bless. . .

Hi bettyboop09,

I understand where you're coming from. I was also overwhelmed with the number of posts under this thread when I first joined this forum, but I can assure you that almost all if not all of the information that you needed about application is already posted here. Just for the record, I was able to catch up by reading the thread starting from page 1 of Part 2. But of course I didn't finish it all at once since I don't have the luxury of time to do that. :)

The main reason this thread was created was to guide all of us who are in search of answers to questions we don't normally get in some websites because what we do here is to share our experiences so that other people in the same situation will also hasten their learning curve or don't have to go through the same situation.

Perseverance is a must and sometimes you really just have to be a little more patient reading this thread.:)

hi guys.. Just want to ask if I can pay the tuition fee using the bank account of my friend who will also apply and pay to CON? My bank is BPI, but if I transact through BDO it's 10,000php lesser. However, I don't have a BDO account and they will only allow telegraphic transaction if you are a client. If I open an account in BDO, they told me it will take 6months before they allow me to transact.. :confused: 10,000php is such a big loss if I transact with my bank.
