I got my LETTER OF OFFER from ACFE and AAON (University Of Ballarat). Thank God.Can you help me which should I go to? I am also in a dilemma right now. I am also waiting for my LOE from Mercy Health since it is my first choice but I am also afraid I will lose my slot in the other schools. HELP! MERCY HEALTH will choose their applicants for interview on March 5,2012. Should I just wait for it without a guarantee that I will get in and risk my slot to the other schools?

Hello there Adyhottie!

I would just like to know if what intake was offered to you by AAON (University Of Ballarat)? Have you decided which school to enroll? Thank you.

There are agencies out there offering big loans and not disclosing all the conditions, interest rates etc until you sign up.

This is totally against Australian practise and totally illegal here....everything before signing anything must be disclosed, including if you manage to pay off earlier, everything must be out there written on paper.

Think very carefully before taking loans out on the priviso that WHEN you get work you will pay it off....

The government has tightened up on how employers offer long term business visa's and this is what is needed for you to stay and work in Australia.

If possible try and raise the money yourself with family or some source that you know were you stand if you get work or do not get work, the pressures off. It would be a terrible situation if families had to sell homes, business, land just to pay your loan off because you were not able to get work. Especially those with no experience.

Australia has a ready made workforce of graduate nurses, as it is, which makes it extremely difficult now, for an employer to state thate they need a nurse with no experience from overseas to take a position. Aged care also is becoming difficult. As international nurses moved into the rural areas to take those positions.

It was possible in the past not now and actually was not too successful at times due to nil experience for clients and staff and nurse.

Be extremely careful, the lure of the 'Australian' Dream my overtake the realities of not being able to pay for loans...and remember there will always be people willing to make lots of money on peoples beliefs and desperation of getting a job and making a better life, when at times it is just not possible.

Hi. I just want to know what ceridwyn said in one of the threads regarding the 24-week bridging program in Western Australia which does not require AHPRA. DOes this only apply to US-registered nurses? Thank you.

Its university of South Australia, you still need to go through AHPRA process after completing course and with the 7 in IELTS.

Hi! I just have a few questions about completing my application, hope those who've done this can help me out :D

- in question 5 principal place of practice: I’m not entirely sure about this coz this would depend on where I could find work soonest after I finish the BP. If I put NSW for application purposes and end up working in a different state later, would there be problems? And if I’m submitting the application to WA or some other state, is that ok?

- Question 11: details of qualificationà is this “Bachelor of Science in Nursing” then the name of university for the institution? How about for the additional qualification/exams? Should I also put the local Nurse Licensure Exam and NCLEX here?

- Question 13: is the statement of service the same s certificate of employment? When they say it should describe the role in which I was employed, does indicating “Full Time Registered Staff Nurse” suffice, or do I have to attach a full detailed job description? (I’m not sure if our HR issues those:uhoh3:)

- Curriculum vitae s

o after getting my license I didn’t start working rightaway coz of unavailability of jobs and coz I took other exams. Is this enough reason/explanation for the gap in practice history part?

o What can I use as evidence for continuing professional development? Training/seminar certificates e.g. BLS/ALS?

o Am I the one to sign the CV and affirm it’s true and correct, or an authority (e.g. manager)?

- Payment

o if I placed NSW as my intended state of practice in question 5, then I have to pay $220 + 115 + 104, right?

o Can I use somebody else’s credit card?

I'm still trying to decide on the state where I should submit my application. WA was my initial choice but it seems there's been a bul of applicants there recetnly. any suggestions? Thanks a lot everyone!

To those people going to IHNA or have gone to IHNA for their BP,

A colleague of mine back home is telling me that IHNA will accept students who haven't gotten the AHPRA LOE. She failed her IELTS test in writing and speaking. She even asked for referrals for homestays near IHNA. How could that be? :uhoh3:

Before I got my LOE from AHPRA and went to ETEA, I did get a slot from VCHN (old name of IHNA). They conducted a phone interview which I obviously passed. But my acceptance to their bp was pre-conditioned on the final release of my LOE before I can start. But by the time I got my LOE, all their intakes for the year have already been filled. That's why I applied and got in to ETEA.:idea:

in Question 5 (principal place of practice) - i'm pretty sure I didn't put an Australian address in here simply because I am not in Australia. I just wrote "USA".

Question 11 (qualifications) - I wrote "Bachelor of Science in Nursing" then the whatever else is required under it. And that's it. I did not write NCLEX or any other exams or continuing education that I took.

Question 13 (statement of service) - it's the same as certificate of employment. My HR officer did not include a detailed job description but just an overview of what I do at work.

Curriculum Vitae - I have a year gap before I started working and that's because I took IELTS, NCLEX, plus the processing times those entail. And I included that in the CV. The HR officer signed mine.

Continuing Professional Development - I included EVERYTHING. Even the simplest 1 hour training we had for Charting/Documentation. And I sent copies of ALL.

----

But of course, this is my case. It may not be the same for everyone but at least you have an idea. I did not have any problems with my application (other than it took a while for my approval). Also, with the application, I included a letter/note on every page or every documents I included that I think needs further information. Like in question 5, I included a letter explaining the reason why I put "USA".

Good luck.

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! you may undergo your bp with a student visa, since your already there.. why not extend it? what's making you consider going home for a 456 visa? :) just curious... :specs:
