Hi guys, i just have quick inquiry regarding the steps /process in becoming an RN in Australia. I've read a couple online but im not quite sure on how to approach it.

Here's my situation: I'm already a permanent resident and a nurse back in the Philippines.

Thank you in advance. Godspeed!

    My wife was a Nurse back in the Philippines and is now a registered nurse here.
    You need to secure an AHPRA eligibility letter (you will be declined registration and will be advised to take a bridging course (if you have an experience) or a bachelor degree).
    Have a look on this application form here:
    http://www.nursingmidwiferyboard.gov.au/documents/default.aspx?record=WD11/5938&dbid=AP&chksum=Vu5B6IVSxjQ2tDhZpamU2Q==

    You need to have a valid english test (she took OET and had B in all tests). She then asked her mom to get some documents (not sure what) in PRC, transcript from her school and have them sent to AHPRA. That's it. After finishing your course you will need to re-apply for registration with AHPRA.

    Yes, you're still considered as an Internationally Qualified Nurse. If you've downloaded the AGOS-40 form it specifically states that "All applicantd must demonstrate English language competency via one of the following pathways:". Madaming options dito like kung nasa recognized country kaba that speaks english, nagaral kaba dito sa Australia or any country na recognized or nagtake kaba ng English test. Have a look I think it's on page 8 of that form.
    Cheers

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
