      Hi, when are you arriving here in Australia? The position is still open and it’s urgent as well.
  • ishtar
    Hi po! Ask ko lang po baka po may idea ka how to help my friend. She is a community health nurse for 6 years in the PH and wanted to be a nurse in Australia. Pede po ba sya mag BP? or she's under the conversion course na po? She has no hospital experience po. Sa health center lang po sya and currently school nurse na po.

      She can do bridging course. She just needs to get an eligibility letter from AHPRA.
    • ishtar
      ishtar
      Ah talaga po? May nagsabi kasi sakanya mahihirapan sya maghanap ng work after the course kung walang hospital experience tsaka daw po ung community nursing pang mga veteran nurses na daw po hehe
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Oo, pwede naman as long as yung position niya sa job is as a Nurse. Wala namang madali, pero definitely naman may job for nurses dito sa Au. Ang importante is makagain ng registration dito sa Au and makapagPR. Then tsaka na magworry about other things because definitely there will always be a job. Nakadepende naman sa tao kung pano siya kapursigido na maghanap ng trabaho. :) Huwag magpapadala sa mga negatibo.

  • cheezy_pops
    Hi @cassey, AHPRA RN nadin ako since May 26, recently completed nadin ang ANMAC ko, waiting nalang ako na i-deliver by post. 2yrs lang ang sinubmit ko sa anmac under critical care, pero may 2 yrs akong experience as a Private Duty Nurse (with COE &payslips) pero walang supervisor at ITR kasi parang casual lang ako at home-based. If ever kaya na ipapa-assess ko to sa anmac for additional points, pwede na ang COE lang? Feeling ko kasi dati maganda ang ANZSCO code ng critical care (na baka mabilis ang invite etc.) at wala nman akong reference letter ng pagiging private nurse kaya diko na sya sinama dati.
    August 28
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Hi, Congrats! I called ANMAC before and sabi nila dapat may reference letter. You can try to call them up or email them kung pwede na walang reference letter para di masayang pambayad mo and see how you go. Medyo matagal nga ang invitation sa RN ngayon unlike before.
    • cheezy_pops
      cheezy_pops
      Ah ganun po ba, sabagay mas masasagot nila agad pag tinawagan hehe.. Hmm, sa ngayon kasi 55 points lang ako and pag mag english test matatagalan bago maka EOI kaya naisip ko what if i-try ko i-add nalang yun hehe.

      Thanks po sa reply! :) Tawag ako sa anmac tomorrow.
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Have you given State Sponsorship a thought? May 5 points kang makukuha for that. :)
  • mespedido
    Hi Cassey! Do you happen to know if I can claim points for head nurse or nurse manager role? Thank you!
    August 18
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Hi, it depends on what role or what ANZSCO code you are applying. Claiming points would all depend on your ANMAC LOD. If it's recognized by ANMAC, then you can claim points but if not then you can't because over claiming will definitely lead to a refusal.
  • maiii

      Hi, Nagstart si hubby ng Aged Care Cert 3 to 4, show money namin is around 3M. Kasama na niya ako on a dependent visa since start pa lang. Hindi na niya tinapos yung Cert 4 kasi there's no pathway to PR, nagshift siya into Bachelor's course for a year lang since RN siya sa atin sa Pinas then PR na.
    • majorr

      Hi Cassey and zeus09, is it true na kapag streamlined uni ang inapplyan hindi always required ang show money? Nung kasabay ka na sa student visa application ni hubby, may additional visa fee lang, tama ba? San pong Uni nagstart si hubby mo? and dun din ba sya nagbachelors? Thank you!
    • zeus09
      zeus09
      ayun pla pcnxa n ask q ulit dito, f ever nkpunta n aq jan s australia n nkaenroll s childcare, pwede b aq magshift s conversion course✌️thanks cassey
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Yes, you can shift. It's easy as long as you have proper and complete documents plus finances. You have to be careful though because some institutions would ask you to pay for the whole tuition fee even if you are not finishing the course. There are educational consultants here in Australia that provide free services like AECC if that's the path that you're planning to take. You're welcome.
    • zeus09
      zeus09
      i see... thank you cassey, actually dats wat im worrying of...the need to pay for the whole tuition ill try to enroll in a conversion course as much as possible...
  • zeus09
    hi Ms cassey ask q lng kc ang cnuggest sken ng tita q s consultancy mag child care for 2 yrs, risky kc ang bridging program, im a nurse nga pla with 5 yrs exp in middle east ang trget intake is on october... tanong q lng ano ang mga options q after q mag studies since meron aqng exp ano ang mga mggwa q pra mkkuha ng work after studies... no idea s mga processing... medyo hesitant pa kc i dont know kung ano mga dadatnan q jan, tsk i know out of topic... mrmi bng work n maaplayan ng students jan?
    August 6
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Hi, sorry, but the consultancy must have been mistaken? Why would they say such? Getting a bridging course isn't risky, it's actually less riskier than getting a conversion course. What is riskier is what they suggested you to do which is getting a child care course. Is there even a permanent visa route after you finish your childcare course? After you finish your studies and your visa is expired whatever course it is, you have to go home. Studying here doesn't guarantee your stay here in Au.
      You can't use your experience as a Nurse with Childcare. It doesn't work that way in Australia. They will look into a Childcare experience. What do you want to achieve here in Au? If you want to be a nurse, then it's only through Bridging or Nursing Conversion course.
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      And just to add up as well if you get a bridging course you are sure that there's a pathway for PR which other courses don't have. And yes, jobs are available just don't be fussy. Just grab whatever job is available.
    • zeus09
      zeus09
      thanks cassey, one more question can we shift to other course? in case i enrolled child care can i shift it to conversion course?would that be as easy as it seemed?
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Yes, you can shift. It's easy as long as you have proper and complete documents plus finances. You have to be careful though because some institutions would ask you to pay the whole tuition fee even if you are not finishing the course.
  • TheMaineGirl
    Hello Ms. Cassey! I have few questions po kaya I decided na i-message ka nalang dito directly. We migrated here in Perth last week and I just graduated po last March 2017 and passed the PH Nursing Licensure Exam last June 2017. Wala na po akong chance maka kuha ng experience sa PH since naka sched na po yung pag migrate namin ng July, PR na rin po ako. May I ask po if kailangan ko pa po ifill-up yung AGOS-40 form ng AHPRA then antayin yung response nila? Do I also have to take the IELTS po? Kasi I have these certifications na English yung medium of instruction ko simula nung grade school hanggang college, ito rin po ginamit ko nung nag apply for PR dati at na approve naman and wala po akong may mailagay sa CV ko na work experience since yung experience ko lang talaga is nung student pa lang po ako, meron po akong proof ng related learning experience ko which is 2,346 hours na rin. Ano po yung ma isusuggest nyo na pwede ko pong mailagay sa CV? Big help po talaga response nyo. TYSM po!
    August 5
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Hi, are you planning to take conversion course since you don't have an experience? Yes, i think you will still have to fill up the AGOS 40 because you are registered overseas BUT that is after you finish the course. You will need to take an English take because that is one of the requirements. It's different from the PR Visa where you are only required to submit the CEMI (because you are a dependent and not the main applicant) Since you don't have any experience just do a Statutory Declaration providing your reasons why you were not able to work as a Nurse. Have it signed by the Justice of Peace and just attach it to your application. If you want to clarify something, you can also call AHPRA. :) All the best!

    Good day, Cassey, your responses on this thread are so helpful! Baka you can also shed light and help us decide. My husband is eligible to take the bridging program for nurses. Is it always the tourist visa issued for this course? The reason I asked is because if he can be granted a student visa, we'd like to take chance na sabay kami pumunta, as his dependent I can work right away. At least may bumabalik agad na funds.

      Hi, with bridging course you can choose whether to apply for TV or Student Visa. TV doesn't come with work rights but with student visa you're allowed to work for 20hrs a week. It would be a challenge to find a job though because it's just a 3mos course. Yung visa fee for dependent lang ang binayaran namin plus medicals. Sa Deakin Uni nagaral si hubby at yun yung walang show money yun nga lang it's pricy compared to other Unis offering conversion course.
  • ninz
    Hi cassey, ask ko lng na i have 5 yirs hosp abroad experience then i applied for student visa. It is better ba na ung cert coursen nd diploma ang kunin o mag babachelor of nursing ako? Kasi they advised na if above 3 yirs ok lng na di mag bsn and its expensive also. Just wanna know ur thoughts about it. Thank u
    July 29
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Hi, Are you a Registered Nurse with a recent 5yrs experience? If you are, you don't have to take a Bachelor's course because you have 5yrs of experience. You can go for a bridging course which is a shorter course, 3months at the moment. After you finish bridging, you can register as a Nurse here in Au, have a skills assessment with ANMAC and afterwhich you can apply for PR. Cert courses even if they are a bit cheaper would not lead to PR so it's just a waste of your time and money. It wouldn't lead to your registration as a nurse as well.

      If you don't want to do bridging, you can do a 1yr Nursing conversion course. It's just a longer course. It will lead into registration as well as PR as long as you meet the requirements.
    • ninz
      ninz
      Thanks, your so heplful. Yes, currently working now in kuwait pediattic ER. Regarding conversion course can you expand about it? It is different from cert courses?
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Conversion course is a 1yr shortened Bachelor's Course. So basically for Overseas Nurses they have cut down the years. Instead of doing 3yrs, its down to a year or 2 depending on the Uni that you'll be applying into. It is totally different from Cert Courses. Cert courses are basic courses under Vocational Education and Training (VET) while Conversion is under Higher Education Courses.
    • ninz
      ninz
      Sa conversion po ba visa 500 xa pede isama ang husband? Then ano na po status after? Eligible for graduate temporary visa po ba xa?
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Oo, pwede mong isama yung dependent mo with conversion course and it's under student visa. It's not eligible for Graduate Visa. Graduate Visa is just for those who completed a 2yr course. Most likely, you will be running out time to process everything for PR. You can either apply for another student visa or just go back to Philippines and process it offshore.
    • ninz
      ninz
      So after a year if di kayanin ng time dun na mag aaply for another student visa na onshore applicarmtion at pede na yubg mga cert courses or VET courses kukunin pra ma prolong ang stay mo while nag cocontinue ka pa sa pr proces niyan? Thank you really casey for your time answering my querries.
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Yep, pwedeng magapply for another student visa onshore. Pwedeng VET course as long as related siya sa tinapos mo na course at pag VET meron siyang show money requirement. Meron namang mga agencies na free yung services rito sa Au like AECC.
  • dval
    Hi miss cassey. Sensya ka na kung minessage na kita ng rekta. May question po sana ako. Wala po kasi akong experience as RN dito sa pinas so pinapagtake ako ng agency ng one year na bridging course kesa magbachelor daw ako. Problem. ko is, since wala naman ako experience malabo ang may magsponsor sakin right? And, currently naka 55 points lang din ako. So even after macomplete ko yung bridging course kelangan ko pa din makakuha ng superior sa PTE/IELTS. So far nameet ko palang is all 65. Parang naisip ko po kasi, pag hindi ako naka superior sa PTE wala nako ibang option para maPR? Kasi need din ng state nomination ngbexperience diba? So tama pp ba nag magconversion ako o magbachelor for 2 years? Salamat po sa tine and input mo.
    July 17
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Hi, No problem. Do you mean 1 yr conversion course? Yes, kapag wala kang experience, hindi ka makakakuha ng sponsor kasi may requirement na ngayon na dapat may minimum of 3yrs experience.
      Unfortunately, hindi ako sure kung lahat ng states eh nagrerequire ng experience. You can check NSW.
      Para makagain ng points, it's either you increase your English test result or pwede rin yung 1yr work experience dito sa Au once you get your registration here or yung 2yrs na Bachelor's course. Yun nga lang pag mas mahaba yung course mo, it's riskier because you don't know when the rules will be changing with immi and with AHPRA and ANMAC as well. Just to let you know, they will soon be introducing 2exams for the registration of internally qualified nurses.
  • arke1084
    Hi i already received my offer letter in deakin.. For 1 yr intake next year 2018 feb. excited, pero question lang po ano po ang advantage ng student visa to bridging program? Or any disadvantages ba or suggestions thanks
    June 5
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      That's good, yung bridging well mas mabilis siya pero pag once na natapos yung course at wala kang nahanap na sponsor uuwi ka ng Pinas so sa Pilipinas mo na gagawin yung PR application mo, etc...and with bridging depending on the visa yung work limitations may differ. Pag 1yr intake you can work while studying for 20hrs a week plus the subjects are not cramped and you have more time i guess to have your documents ready for registration and PR though kukulangin talaga ng time kasi matagal ang waiting period for AHPRA and ANMAC plus EOI and PR application pa.

    • Cassey

      Mahal nga ang Deakin, i think around $30k yung nagastos namin though worth it naman. It's a good investment. Try mong isearch yung Edith Cowan Uni i think mas mura yung conversion program nila.

      Malaki ang chance considering na malaki ang demand nila for Nurses here in Au. Wala pa naman akong nababalitaan na hindi nakakapagPR so far. As long as mameet mo yung requirements for registration, skill assessment and PR requirements then you'll be fine.

I'm planning to migrate sa Australia. my questions are 5 yrs na ko hnd nagwwork as a nurse pede prin kaya ako mgmigrate dun? kelangan ba tlga ng bridging course pra maaccredit ako ng ANMAC? please answer my questions.

    thanks ha =)
    May 24
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Hi, lahat kailangang magaral regardless of your work experience. Hindi ka makakapagregister as a nurse dito sa Au without studying here. Unfortunately with the bridging, they require applicants to have a recent experience which is within 5yrs from the date of application. With ANMAC, work experience should be within 5yrs as well so yung sa'yo might not be recognized anymore because it's past 5yrs or going 5yrs already.
      Pwedeng magmigrate after studying here and after registering as a nurse here in Au as long as you meet the points for migration and as long as you'll get a positive assessment from ANMAC.
    • alonsy
      alonsy
      even a student visa? i cannot migrate there? student visa pede ba ksma un hubby and kids?
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      You can get a student visa then after studying you can apply for PR provided that you meet the conditions. PR Visa (permanent) is different from a student visa(temporary). You can bring your family here while you're on a student visa as long as you have the funds to support them. If the kids are staying here in Au for longer than 6mos you have to enrol them as international students which can be costly. You are only allowed to work for 20hours a week if you're on a student visa.
    • alonsy
      alonsy
      do you have any idea how much will it cost for a student visa? how much funds do they need to see or know for me to bring my family?
    • Cassey

    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Hi, unfortunately kailangan mo ng experience para makaregister ka as a nurse sa AHPRA (at least 450 hrs within 5yrs) and at the same time kailangan rin siya sa ANMAC (3yrs paid overseas experience or 1yr Au experience) para makakuha ka ng positive assessment otherwise di ka makakapagapply for PR. Unfortunately, since hindi related mga natapos mo sa Nursing wala siyang weight sa Nursing application mo.
  • topeakaspike
    Hi Cassey,

    I just want to ask for Vicroads,

    1. Ung driver's license card lng ba ang papakita to get your license convert sa Vicroads?

    2. I'm planning to get it converted kasi right after makapasa ako at makuha ko ung driver's license sa pinas, will they allow to convert ba even if kakakuha ko lng ng Phil driver's license

    3. LTO will only issue paper type and not card type muna daw since sa delay cguro sa pag gawa ng card type, will Vicroads accepts ba ung paper type?

    4. Will Vicroads accepts ba just in case the international drivers license that I will get from Automobile Association Philippines right after I get ung paper type Phil driver's license ko in lieu of the card type phil driver's license

    5. Mabilis lng ba ung pag book ng road law knowledge test, hazard perception test, and drive test? Meaning wala ng waiting period and may wait period ba bago ka magtake ng next test?


    Thank u very much in advance
    Chris
    May 20
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      @topeakaspike

      1. Aside from the card, you have to bring your 3 proofs for your identity:
      Passport (Category A)
      Medicare or Bank Card (Category B)
      Bills (evidence of Your residency in VIC; bears your address in Victoria)
      2. Yes
      3. Are you referring to the receipt that LTO is currently giving because they're out of cards? If yes, you need to present a letter (with the Letterhead) from LTO as well kung saan nakalagay yung status ng Ph license, yung type of license, date of issuance and expiration date na rin.
      Another option is to get a letter dito sa Consulate sa Australia saying that it has verified your license details from LTO and of course containing the above information as well.
      4. Unfortunately, international license is of no use, so no need to get it.
      5. Mabilis lang ang booking ng knowledge and hazard and there's no waiting period if you do the booking in their offices. With the driving test, dahil marami ang kumukuha usually mga 1month bago ang actual test.
  • h2oleelee
    Hi a' and Cassey. Ask naman po ako kung ano ang advice niyo sa pag gawa ng GTE lalo na ung paano makakatulong ang Australian qualification. Thanks po
    May 18
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      @h2oleelee
      With GTE, you just need to clearly state
      ~what the course is about
      ~what your reason is for choosing the course
      ~why you chose the education provider
      ~how it is related to your past/current job in the Phils
      ~significance of the course to your profession
      ~relevance of the course to your employment
      ~how the course will help you on the personal level
      ~what you will achieve after finishing the course
      ~value of the course to your future
      ~what you can contribute to the Philippine society after doing the course
      ~why you're choosing Australia

      Basically, it's about proving that you're a genuine student and that you DO NOT intend to stay in Au permanently. It's assuring them that you'll go back to the Phils after your course. :)

    Hello Cassey,
    I am an international student and I just finished a nursing degree in Melbourne this month. I could not be registered in AHPRA for now because I did not get a good score in the Speaking part of the PTE which I took last 20th of March. I would like to ask if you know any employers in Melbourne that would hire newly grad nurses who are not yet registered. I am talking about positions like assistant in nursing, patient/personal care assistant, etc... that do not require any certificate. Here in Melbourne, employers need certificate III or IV in Aged Care although they know that I am a nursing graduate. If you can point me an employer and some tips on how to land a healthcare position in Melbourne, that would be a great help. My email is [email protected]

    Thank you for your time.

    Cheers,
    March 29
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      @Briar Hi, just keep on trying. I'm pretty sure, you'll be fine. Unfortunately, employers require Certificate for those positions. That's actually the first thing that they look for from a potential employee. Maybe try to submit your CV to job agencies. If you have a local experience, it's a plus as well.
      All the best. I hope you'll pass your PTE soon enough. If I'm not mistaken you're allowed to do it in 2 seatings provided that you do it in a span of 6mos.

    @Cassey: Good day po. Slamat po sa reply. I would just like to ask about the chances to acquire a job after bridging program in Au? I mean, after you finish/pass the BP, is there any assurance that you'll be able to find an employer willing to sponsor you?

      There's a chance if you have a good overseas work experience and usually those who give out sponsorships are in regional areas. However, it's best to have a Plan B on hand because it's not guaranteed.

      Hi, ang pagkakaalam ko for you to be eligible to nominate Phartech as your occupation for migration, you've got to have an experience as Phartech. Di ko alam kung may nagssponsor pa ngayon kasi instead of hiring from overseas which is costly, companies opt to hire the locals and provide them the trainings.

      Pag may experience ka as Pharmacy Technician, then you can do a VETASSESS for that occupation.

      @namica Pag bridging course on a student visa at single applicant mga around 500 to 600thou.. Depende kasi kung ilang months ka magstay sa Au tsaka kung magkano yung tuition fee mo.
      So with the living cost PER MONTH per single applicant: $1653 multiply by how many months ka magstay plus yung natitira pang payment for your tuition fee then convert it to peso. :)

      @waifgirl Hi, bridging's duration is 3 mos while conversion course may take up to 1yr or 2yrs depending on the uni. Conversion is Bachelor's degree yun nga lang since makicredit yung subjects sa Phils nasoshorten yung duration niya. With bridging you need to get 7 in all bands sa IELTS and you need to have work experience to qualify for it. Kung magbibridging ka, best not to bring the child kasi sino ang magaalaga dun sa bata. Kung gusto mong mabilis na matapos, do bridging but if you lack the English requirement for it go for conversion,

      Thanks sa reply. Regarding the bridging program, hindi ba talaga mag qualify for it kung more than 5yrs na ang nursing gap? I resigned in 2012. Or basta may experience bibigyan ng eligibility ni ahpra then magkakatalo nalang sa school kung tatanggapin nila na may work gap na? Ganun kasi nabasa ko before sa ibang forum, not sure lang kung ganun padin ngayon

      The Standard requires that a nurse and/or midwife (when seeking registration, endorsement of registration or renewal of registration) must have undertaken sufficient practice to demonstrate competence in their profession/s within the preceding five years. - taken from AHPRA Website

      So option ko nalang po talaga ang diploma or conversion?
    • Cassey
      Cassey
      Kung makakapagwork ka uli then pwede kang magbridging if not then conversion ang magiging option mo.
