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.
