Hello po. I am Denise. I am presently working in Dubai, UAE for the last four (4) years now. Gusto ko sanang mag inquire on what are the needed requirement for nurses for us to be able to work in Australia. I had already taken the IELTS dito po sa Dubai but sad to say I got only 6.5 for both reading and listening while 7 each for writing and speaking. Malapit na ngang mag expire ang IELTS ko come November this year. I tried to apply here in various agencies but with the fees they are asking and information they are providing me with which are magkakaiba, I got confused. Then one agency from the Philippines sent me an info that pwede akong kumuha ng Bridging Program kahit maliit IELTS ko (I understand the required IELTS band score should all be 7 each) but the fees are really very high.

At the moment, I am at a loss. Hindi ko alam kung ano ang gagawin ko. Another thing also, I will be 41 years old in July this year so I do not know if meron ba talagang age limit in applying for Australia.

Nurse po ako since 1992 and my areas of specialization are pediatrics and emergency nursing. Gusto ko lang malaman po what are the first few steps to do para maka start ulit ako if there is still hope for me at this stage.

    50 naman po ang age limit pero wala nang points pag 46 and above ang edad.

    Ang alam ko po kailangan niyo magpa-accredit ng skills pag nasa Australia na kayo para puwede kayo magtrabaho bilang nurse doon. And then para sa IELTS, yes, strict sila sa All 7 :(

    @LokiJr
    Thank you so much po sa info. If that's the case medyo mahirap na atang mag apply at this age, esp if mag take effect na yang new rule this July. :( Kukuha ulit ako ng IELTS.
    One time I went to IDP office dito sa Dubai at nag advise sila for me to take Masters in Nursing. It's like a one and a half year course daw. I am not sure lang if that is a wiser move for me to do. I am still thinking of their offer, malaki nga lang ang gastos.

    @denise Much better po kung try nyo po yung bridging program kasi yun na po yung ginagawa ng mga ibang nurses natin dito sa Pinas. Tama po si sir @LokiJr na kailangan mo ma accredit yung mga skills mo dun sa Oz. Try mo po mag research about sa mga bridging programs na inooffer ng ilang mga agencies dito sa Pinas if may time ka. And patulong ka na rin sa mga relatives mo dito sa Pinas na mag inquire dito sa mga agencies dito. Good Luck po!

    @denise,

    very in demand dito ang nurses kahit saang sulok ng Australia. Mag-retake ka ng IELTS, kaya mo ang 7 sa listening and reading. Actually writing and speaking nga ang mahirap pero nai-7 mo.

    Wag kang pupunta rito na hindi 7 ang ielts, kasi i-aadvise ka ng agency na magtake ng Occupational english na bukod sa mas magastos ay mas mahirap pa sa ielts.

    Minsan nakakainis ang mga agency sa pinas, kumita lang kahit mahirapan ang mga aplikante.

    Hi @adelaide_boi

    Speaking of agencies, may info ka ba dun sa Phil Management na agency na nagpapaloan sa mga nurses na gusto magbridging program? I'm just wondering how successful they are in having the nurses land a job here in AU. Parang success story kasi nila is when naipapadala nila yung nurses to study here under a Business VISA (Subclass 456, di ko alam kung bakit hindi Student VISA) pero tingin ko di yun yung sukatan. Saka di nila sinasabi kung magkano interest rate nung pautang nila kaya I fear na masyadong mabigat for the nurses who loaned kahit nakahanap na sila trabaho.

    Here is Phil Management's FB Page.
    https://www.facebook.com/phil.management

    Thanks.

    Thanks @tdy. Mukhang kelangan mo pumunta sa isa sa mga seminars ng philman para maentertain.

    Ngayon ko lang narinig yang allskills. Ano naman process nila? Nagpapautang rin ba sila for the tuition?

    Reply to @k_mavs: hello po. thank you po sa reply and advise. sori ngayon lang ako nka reply, medyo busy sa work. Meron nag offer sa akin, ACTEC. I think ang office nila is located in Cebu. According to them, I can go for a second option for low IELTS and take a bridging course. They even sent me a contract na para maka habol ako sa sked of the bridging course sa July but then the amount they asked was too high kaya hesitant ako and after reading all the comments here regarding the the IELTS of 7 band score lalo na akong nag hesitate. Have you heard of this ACTEC?

    Reply to @adelaide_boi:

    @adelaide,

    Hello. Thank you for the advise. Plano ko talagang mag re take kaso I got this fear na baka this time around I will get lower scores na, maybe luck was on my side during that time (hehehe). Anyway, may limit sila sa age? I will be 41 in July. Eto rin ang one of the reasons kung bakit hesitant ako kasi most of the agents na na deal ko dito nag discourage sa akin about Australia kasi nga sa edad. HIndi pa rin ako nag give up to look for an agent and I found one from India (MARA agent with an office in Australia and India dw). Same advise but this time no mention about the age...

    Sa pinas I got to find one too but the fees they were asking was too much, like a million pesos na if converted... You are right, nakakatakot agencies sa atin kasi they are asking too much. A million pesos ba talaga magastos to go to Australia?

    @tdy,

    hello. have you heard of ACTEC and Australian Immigration Requirements? Nag send din sila nurses for aAustralia but then the fees are way too high. I tried to contact some of their clients/ nurses whom I found in fb and are now in Australia and asked their status there but they are not replying.

    Buti pa siguro i check natin if MARA agent sila or something. Am not sure also.

Working as a nurse after bp, ü she said na mga 2 months sya nahanapan ng allskills ng work, pero yung iba nyang kasabay sa allskills nakakita kagad so i guess depende sa credentials, ü

    Reply to @denise: Retake ka na lang IELTS galingan mo. Then pa assess ka sa aphra may iba kasi na hindi na nagbridging kapag mga 5 years or more na exp as a nurse. If gusto mo naman ng mabilis go for a student visa expensive nga lang sya. If mababa IELTS mo you can still enroll sa conversion program packaged course with English. Forget about ACTEC.
