I have spent the last couple of hours reading through various threads about RN's in America moving to Australia to begin/continue their practice and you have been a very strong/encouraging voice in every one of them.
I am also a recent ADN graduate, who is thinking about moving to AU, and I have so many questions!!! I called Nursing Careers Australia today, and they said that I shouldn't even think about applying to AHPRA until I have a Bachelor's degree, and over 800 clinical hours. I know your move is pretty recent, so while that may be accurate to them, it can't be entirely true.
I can't seem to be able to PM you on here, but if you could please provide an email address for correspondence, I would be extremely grateful. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, we can talk on here as well. Whatever is easiest/most accessible for you. I just need to be able to talk to someone who has been through the process.
