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
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.
Gusto ko lang malaman ano sa tingin mo status ng mga international students dito na nag aaral ng nursing.. I eman malaki padin ba chance namin ma-PR? haha ofcourse lahat naman ng kababayan natin na nag aaral dito yun po talaga aim. gusto ko lang maging positive..
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.
Hello Casey, my questions lang ako. I resigned last 2012 as a nurse. worked for 4 1/2 yrs sa hospital dito sa pilipinas. 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.
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.
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.
hi sis! yeap mag aaral pa ako sis. sa etea. RN po ako sa pinas and im currently living sa sydney now under diploma. i have certificate agedcare early childhood education both diploma. and i have 70 points . pero wala akong experience po. qualified po ba ako? thanks
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.
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?
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)
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.
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. :)
Hi ms cassey! Good day po, Im also a RN, may one year practice nung 2013 sa tertiary hospital sa Pinas at 18month sa community under Nurse Deployment Project ng DOH nung 2015-2016. Gusto ko lang po sana magtanong kung ano mga kailangan ko para makapag-bridging program. I will be taking PTE sa 20th dito sa Sydney, e uuwi na po ako ng Pinas before June 17. Andito ako Sydney for holiday since December. Sayang nga po at wala ako nagagawa pa. Wait ko po yung reply nyo para once makauwi ako,maayos ko na yung mga kailangan ko at kailangang gawin o isend sa AHPRA. Thank you so much ms cassey! -Angel
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
@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?
Hi mam! Pano maging certified pharmtech sa AU? Pharmacist po ako sa pinas. Meron pa din po ba kayo alam na employer na ngssponsor tpos pede kang magaral habang nagwowork sa kanila? Willing po ako full time. Thank you so much
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.
@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. :)
Hello po!.ask ko lang, ano ang diff ng bridging sa conversion? Same po ba si conversion sa diploma in nursing? Also ano kaya ang better na kunin? Plan to bring my kid with me kasi sinve hubby ko magwork sa cruise
@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

Hi, for AHPRA you'll need:
2. PRC License
3. Transcript and diploma
4. Board certificate
5. Certificate of good standing (request from PRC and have it sent to AHPRA)
6. Course Description/Syllabus
7. Certificate of employment
8. CV (original)
9. English test result
mam cassey..NEED YOUR ADVICE..hindi po kase ko yung principal applicant..yung husband ko..my main concern is yung COURSE SYLLABUS and COURSE DESCRIPTION na sinasabi ng iba na kakilala ko na nasa AU na and NZ..NEED PO BA TALAGA YUNG SA PAG APPLY SA APHRA AND MAKAPAG ARAL DJAN SA AUSTRALIA? kase my mga kulang akong subject dahil close na yung school ko ng nursing..salamat po
Hello, @zeilem1229 Kung hindi ka naman kumuha ng points, hindi mo na kailangan pang magprovide pa ng proof for the AU qualification/experience. Magaattach ka lang ng proof sa mga kinuhanan mo ng points. Sa baby naman, yung Birth cert, passport niya, emedical letter, picture at tsaka marriage cert lang namin ni hubby ang inattach ko. :)
Hi Cassey. ask ko lang kung nag apply ka ng family tax benefit. ang alam ko kasi eligible to for family with kids. medyo same kasi tayo kasi from student visa to PR. still waiting parn ako sa grant though. Salamat.
Hi ask ko lang, pano po ba ako magsstart magpaassess sa ahpra at makakuha ng referral letter for a bridging program? im a registered nurse here in dubai, and di ko alam kung san at pano akko magsstart after taking ielts. Can you guide me po please..
Hi, it's just me and my hubby. Dependent ako ni hubby. Di na muna namin sinama yung anak namin kasi medyo mahirap. Yung 573 namin 1yr lang so limited work hours. Pag sinama mo school age na dependent kailangang ienrol mo rin yung bata dito eh mahal tuition fee at siyempre need ng magaalaga.
