Hi all!

I’m a registered midwife and nurse here in the Philippines. I’m also a registered nurse in US. I dont have any hospital experience since nagBpo ako agad. Supposed to be magoospital na ako para sa US nurse processing ko but my husband applied for Sub 189 visa and got approved last december 2018. We Will be moving in Oz this coming Feb 2019. I’m asking for suggestion if dapat pa ako magtake ng BSN which i think po 1 year or magcontinue nlng ako ng post graduate course since balak ko na magmasteral to be an audiologist. Iniiisip ko kasi na sayang 1 year sa BSN ko kung after nun mag magmasteral ako ng audiologist. Iniisip ko din kung sakaling matapos na ako sa masteral pde ako mag register sa AHPRA as a nurse or kung may mga work oppurtunities po ba while i’m taking my masteral in audiologist. Any suggestion po ng mas ok na post graduate course na maganda ang magiging oppurtunity while and after graduate? Thank you sa sasagot!

    I am no nurse but my partner is. I say you should go for a conversion course ung BS lang lalo na kung wala ka pang experience. From what she and her work mates were saying, ung mga post-grad na nurses napupunta sa research mostly. And mas mahirap ung post-grad kesa sa BS (from Curtin Uni WA) since kasi work-based ung learning sa post-grad. Idodocument mo ung cases or gagawa ka ng journal while working sa mga hospitals. It feels like paying the uni while they let you work and learn for your self, coming from them nurses. Wala din daw itinuro to be honest. The only con sa mga may experience na at currently AU RN ay tataas lang ung sahod.

    But again this is just my humble opinion. Thanks
