marcopol,

 

it's not AHPRA's fault whether some applications are delayed, or jobs are limited, and most of all - giving overseas nurses a sense of false hope. Remember that registration as a nurse in Australia, especially for overseas nurses, is not a right. It is just a privilege. Therefore, we don't have any say on whatever AHPRA chooses to do. (Unless of course if it's in violation of any of your human rights). We are merely asking them a favor to assess our qualifications and register us as nurses.

Whether there are jobs available should be your responsibility. If you still went ahead with your application without considering the immigration, employment, and other factors, then you're at fault. AHPRA can't tell you whether or not you should apply for registration just because the employment situation is not that great. It's not their job. It is yours​.

i am here in Sydney now. all i can say is.. They still need RNs here. im working in nursing homes under an agency. and RNs here usually do double shifts because they got no Rns. if ul be registered here. u need an agent to find an employer. facilities here dont just hire now. they want agents to do the thingy because sponsorship is a lot of work. thats what ive heard from RNS here in Nursi g homes. not sure in hospitals though. im still waiting for my LOE too from ahpra wa. its been 9 deadly months. :(

hello! are you filipino? i applied for june in melbourne campus but i was just emailed that they can put me in may if i am interested. hopefully i'll see you around.

Hi cheskaval. Just want to ask something. You're enrolled in IHNA right? because i was given an offer letter and they were asking me to pay 1000 aud for the enrollment fee. Now, do they automatically deduct it from the BP tuition which is 11,500 or is enrollment fee considered as an additional fee? (aside from 500 aud on-line course)

any input will be highly appreciated.

thanks!

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 hneow 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.

Mates, for you to say I'm ignorant is out of line. I'm just expressing my sentiments. it's very easy for you to say these things because you're already done with the process. no more worries for you. I'm just symphatizing with everyone here who are endlessly waiting only God knows when they are going to release the LOE. AHPRA is taking us for a ride. in my opinion why it's taking them so long to release the LOE whether you agree with me or not is becoz they are holding our application purposely to give way to all their graduates to be employed first. That's the reality.

Well thats great news, our local nurses are to being considered first for a change! Is this not acceptable?

But it is the Australian immigration that is slowing jobs for overseas nurses, they have implemented more stringent ways of making sure an employer has considered local nurses before being allowed to offer an overseas nurse full time work through a visa.

I know that AHPRA officers and offices have better things to do than work out who are nurses from Phillipines and put them on the 'go slow'pile, it would be a costly exercise to the Australian taxpayer but also impossible to implement, most AHPRA officers would have no idea how many sponsored visas are available for overseas nurses, or how many are applying through the skilled visa program.

They just know there is a glut of applications coming from overseas and there is not enough time in the day to process them all in 4 weeks.

I hope if you are lucky enough to be offered work that you will not think so badly of every organisation that is not doing things in the time you believe should happen.

Your anger and impatience is not AHPRA's fault, but your country educating far more nurses than needed causing all nurses to search for other ways of practising their profession and helping the family. They educate nurses for export so that the money goes back and is spent in the Phillipines helping their economy.Now every country that did have much work for overseas are now closing the gate because there is enough nurses or cut backs, your anger should be towards the situation and stress your country has put you in, not AHPRA.
