AHPRA is a registration body. There are no tactics involved. The fact is their job is to assess if you are suitable to be a nurse in Australia.

PRC is the registration body in the Philippines. They don't create jobs for nurses there do they?

Schools that accept overseas applicants for BP are just that - schools. They won't find you work once you finish your BP.

That's my point AHPRA is a government registration body they are fully aware with thousands of registration queing up w/out counting their new graduates to be prioritized in landing a job & yet I repeat they still accepting reg. application. They are biting off more than they could chew. I know a friend from UK after receiving her LOE last month went straight to claim her registration with AHPRA perth office at the same time hunting for a job, to her dismay she went back to UK empty handed despite her 10 yrs plus of experience under her belt. according to her Australia is a very beautiful place but job wise it's getting tougher. it's very simple they are taking advantage of the situation ripping people including me. For them business is good & money is pouring in. I hope somebody from oz who undergone the same process & doing well dispute this claim to give us hope. Kindly bear with me coz i'm one of you waiting almost 8 months now docs received August 2011 AHPRA-WA final approval last Feb. Have faith our time will come. God bless to all.

It is your belief that AHPRA should be a regulating how many nurses are working in Australia, if there are plenty in the country already.

I then propose that the nurses boards should stop registering nurses, in the United States, the Nursing council in the UK, the Canadian nursing boards and most of all the PRC in the Phillipines as they also have too many nurses for the available jobs in the Phillipines but continue to keep educating and keep registering said nurses.

This idea is flawed!

Great english saying, ""people in glass houses should not be throwing stones''

Our poor nurses board is overflowing with overseas applications. Remember it is not a right to work in another country and it is the nurse from overseas that makes the decision to apply, very few are headhunted by an Australian hospital to come here to work.

...and it is now becoming difficult to find work, because of the overseas recruitment, Australia is only so big in population there has to be a limit at some time, as has happened in other countries.

i would like to ask for a good advice for those people who are NOW working in australia as a RN. Is it better to apply in OZ through agency? or apply independently? what are the advantages and disadvantages of both??? thanks..

Ahpra should at least put a moratorium to control the situation. my main concern is they are giving false hope to our nurses who are desperate to seek for greener pastures. To be fair we are not paying peanuts some of us here spent their family lifetime savings with no assurance after. anyway, it's none of our business as long money is flowing in for them. I rest my case. Thank you for your insightful comments. God bless to all. cheers!

I too came from the UK around 2008 or earlier. Nurses from the UK were sought after THEN. The requirements for registration were different at that time. There were also exhibitions in London promoting life and work in Australia. I applied for registration ONLY after I secured a WORK contract. Your friend did the opposite hence the fruitless and expensive exercise. It's important to do your research first before making life changing decisions. It's a very long flight from London to Australia especially Perth.

You are mistaking AHPRA with Immigration. AHPRA will only refuse your registration if you are not suitable to practice nursing in Australia. When you receive your LOE it will state that you will need to undergo a BP to make you suitable for registration. Then you look for a BP provider. Pay for school fees and then apply for a student visa. Then you come to Australia finish your BP and then register with AHPRA. A Letter of Eligibility is NOT a job offer. Once you are registered as a nurse in Australia you will need to find an employer that is willing to sponsor you so you can have a WORK visa. If you don't understand how things work then you should STOP now before you put your family in more debt because you did not do your research. You say you are being ripped off, the only person ripping you off is yourself by being ignorant of the whole process.

Had PRC stopped students from taking the board exam? If you finish your nursing degree in the Philippines and want to take the Board exam, should the PRC stop you because there are lots of jobless nurses already? AHPRA did not ask you to send your application - it was your decision. You gave yourself HOPE that once you are registered that you can get a job here in Australia. You of all people in this thread should know about the risk you are taking. Knowing of somebody who ended up coming back to the Philippines empty-handed should have given you an idea of what you are getting yourself into.
