  1. Most of the times the Australian Department of Immigration will issue you a visa by just sending you a letter notifying you of the grant. It will be up to the visa holder to have their passport stamped in the nearest embassy to reflect the visa in one of the passport pages.
  2. Should you decide to go through this pathway, you will be able to confirm with the course provider itself if their programme will satisfy the Nursing and Midwifery Board's condition that will ultimately lead to registration. :spin:
  3. Yes you may still try for an AHPRA assessment of your credentials. It might prove to be helpful to you to add some training or at least any form of nursing related textbooks you might have read after 2010. http://www.nursingmidwiferyboard.gov.au/documents/default.aspx?record=WD12%2f7485&dbid=AP&chksum=VgkKXSc5inGYpBEONxIi4A%3d%3d
  4. Oh, best wishes to you cheska! You can send off your passport to the nearest VIA centre near you. But if you are departing this weekend then there would be no time for the stamping.
  5. Looks like the programme of the University of Wollongong would take two years. Bachelor of Nursing for Overseas Qualified Nurses - 2012 Course Handbook @ UOW
  6. It may not be like a 'walk in the park,' and there's a spectrum of outcomes from job searching, as some were able to be sponsored by the facility they had their clinical placement in, others had to go home for a fair while and continued job searching online. Athough the latter can be a bit dismal, it is not impossible that you can find a job.
  7. You may find that seek.com.au can be of some value to you. Or try Google and then point to your desired state/city then type hospital or nursing home and then hover your mouse to see if that facility has got a website that you can visit and apply to.

    Any Queensland Nurses here?

    hello everyone. you may now access the national board of nursing and midwifery at: AHPRA - Nursing and Midwifery you can ask away your concerns in the email address they have provided there. as of now they have not posted there if there is a similar program to cas for overseas trained rn's seeking registration, or of what kind of program they would require for the applicants to obtain license. probably the only way to find out is to ask them.

    Well well well, what do we have here? A little romance?? :vlin: And what's this? The girl will travel 375 miles to share a cup of coffee (or tea) with a guy? :w00t: This is even more interesting than some romantic films. Is there a subscription channel for this blossoming love story?:anpom:

    Lithotomy, "to sit for the exam" is just the same as "to take the exam." It's another way of saying it.

    Lithotomy, "one step at a time" means to achieve your goals one by one. Since all dreams of becoming an Australian RN will require the IELTS, it will do you good to focus your attention in getting the required band score (before you let your mind wander elsewhere.) As for me, watching news clips from BBC, and UK or Australian shows (plenty available through the net) can actually help attenuate your ears to their accent. Of course you'd have to couple that with IELTS review materials if you won't be availing the services of review centers. Beware of those review centers who will only mark your practice writings with a check mark, a very good, and other cliche remarks. For me, the writing component is the trickiest of all, since no one can tell what kind of task you will be required to answer. Which is why you need a review material or a review center that can provide you with proper techniques and skills to help you sit for the exam. God Bless!

    thank you for your updates friends. here's another information that might help you in your decisions, coming from the cas program administrator: in regards to clinical placement it will be ok to commence in may (however it would have to be very early in may) but we are saying that we can't 'start' to arrange placements after 30 april as placements take at least a month to arrange. so if you arrange your placement for early may before 30 april then this is ok. however the earlier you complete the program the better. try and go on clinical placement as soon as possible.

    Sadly, those are the only options.

    Hope you guys had a Merry Christmas too. I think you can, but I think it must be in AUD. If you're in Manila, you can visit ANZ bank. Try emailing CAS, although they'll be returning in January. But you could also utilize a credit card by a friend or a relative. As for the process, you will be enrolled to sit for the exam closest to the date you've paid, (every 2nd Wednesday of the month), provided it will be at least 30 days prior to the exam date. "Hello meki! that message was specifically indicated for me. Due to time constraint, the QNC stated that I can only take the Challenge tests, so if I fail one subtest in Part A, I cannot move on with the process. In the past, if u fail one subtest, u can take the education modules. Therefore, it is not an option for me to undertake the modules or the clinical placement. Sorry for making u nervous. I suggest that u must finish ur modules before April for u to catch the last scheduling of clinical placements. Remember there are still hurdles to overcome just like visa processing and blue card application that would take approximately 1 month, this is needed for clinical practice." My modules haven't even arrived. I don't even know if they've already sent them. All I got from them was that they received the payment. No advisory about if they've sent them, or any info about these dramatic changes in their CAS completion timeline. If not for this forum I wouldn't have been informed. And I haven't seen the blue card requirement in the CAS booklet they've sent. Can anyone here guide me how to go about through this?

    Oh my... I still have to complete two modules and the 160 clinical placement...when I submitted my enrollment forms earlier this month, CAS was still advising me to complete everything by June 30 2010, then just a day ago I came across this (finish everything by June 4, and clinical placement arrangements by April 30) in their website... And then the: Originally Posted by UR49 Please note that the CAS modules are no longer an option. Failure to pass the challenge tests will mean that you have failed to demonstrate competence and your application can not therefore be approved. What's gonna happen to me now? I wish they could have decided about all these changes before the Holidays. Now, we all got to wait for next year til they're back in office.
