    Regarding po sa Hep B vaccines, we already had that before but no proof nga lang po. So paano po yan? Need po magpa vaccine ulit? Need kasi ng school ang serology AND proof of the vaccinations. Ano po ginawa nyo?

    Thanks thee to God! I'm leaving this August na. Supposedly this June but I have other things to be done. Ang bilis! I passed the requirements April 5, 2017 got my referral letter April 27, 2017. Then tuloy2 na, nag enroll ako agad.
    Anyway, my friend just finished her BP this month and got a job offer agad. Well, that's a good sign na shortlisted pa rin nurses in Au. Goodluck sateng lahat.

    @aishee5 complete na ko vaccines, pero I had my serology check in Manila Doctors, for the remaining vaccines, you can also do it in a y hospital. I did my influenza and dpt vaccines at VRPMC. I have friends working in Merck Pharma kaya discounted ako sa vaccines, ako mismo bumili ng vaccines then nag pa shot ako sa family doctor namin, I think if you want to save on the vaccines, you can buy your own, let a community doctor vaccinate you. A friend of mine did that. 50% din na save nya.

    @justice143 Hello po. Bale inabot po ng ilang weeks/months po nagreply ahpra sainyo from the day na nag mail po kayo sakanila ng mga requirements? Thank you very much po.May nabasa po kasi akong blog na 6 months daw po bago makareply ang ahpra for eligibility letter. And need po talaga ng International Criminal check sa mga isusubmit na requirements to ahpra po?

    @ceejay Hello, I got mine after almost 5 weeks. I passed mine on March 21, 2017 but due to lack of documents (COGS) I completed all the documents on April 5,2017 then received my LOE on April 27,2017. And yes, need talaga yung ICC. search mo fit2work au, register ka then bayad ka. I think 165$ ate per country yan. tapos yung reference number ipapasa mo sa AHPRA. good luck :)

    @justice143 hi, mga how much lahat nspend mo for immunization? Thanks.
  • justice143justice143 Melbourne

    @sunshineee28 Hello, I only spend vaccines for DpT, Flu and MMR. DpT - 2,000php, flu - 800php, MMR - 2,000php. (1k per dose). I brought my own vaccines from a friend of mine. kaya nakatipid ako. Not sure, if how much sya outside. Regarding HepaB vaccines, free sya sa college ko during student days. Yung booster dose, free sa previous hospital ko.

    @justice143 good am po mam... Magtatanong po ulit ako regarding sa pagrequest po sa prc pra po e.send po sa ahpra, pag iba po ba ang magrequest ng papers mo sa prc kailangan pa po ba ng SPA? Salamat po...

    @ykcul_kcul oh, sorry what's anmac? yung sa amin kasi (goverment hospital) iba yung coe namin at referral letter. Hindi sya tulad ng format na hinihingi ng ahpra, what I did was to make my own, printed in a paper with our hospital letterhead, I let my headnurse to sign it and my hr manager. (matinding pakiusapan).
    yung good standing ko, kakaprocess ko lang yesterday kasi na expire yung pinasa ko sa ahpra. request ka online ng goodstanding then bayad ka 300sr muna, print mo yung isesend sayo ng saudi council na goodstanding cert mo, then punta ka saudi council office ask mo sa customer service kung saan yung for goodstanding to send sa ahpra australia. Bigyan ka nila instructions.
    bayad ka 152sr.
    make sure na may photocopy ka ng saudi council id mo, registration certificate (yung may sticker na silver) at coverletter (naka state dto kung saang address nila isesend) together with your print out goodstanding cert
    note: a4 mo iprint saka dapat colored.
    kung di ka pa mag aapply or mag pass sa ahpra, wag ka muna mag apply for COGS. 3 month validity lang sya. Kaya saken na expired.

    Mabilis lng bah ang processing dun sa saudi council office dox for ahpra? Thanks!

    @ykcul_kcul Hello, yes! I am planning to do get an SPA. Kasi when you get to Au, after BP mo need mo pa rin mag gather ulit ng mga documents for AHPRA Registration.

    Hi po! Kakareciv ko lng po ng ahpra letter ko. As much as possible gusto ko n agad mkaintake ng IRON ksi andmi ng lumalabas n mga changes.. sabi nla mlpit nadaw po mg6mos bridging.. I have a sister po residing in sydney. Upon searching, ang nkita ko lng na school n mlpit is ACN and ETEA.. sbi nla may bumabagsak daw sa ACN.. how abt etea? Do you have any idea po? Mageenrol n po sana ako nxtweek pra mkaabot sa august intake nla..
  • butterflybutterfly Melbourne

    @Maceda1112 I am here in Sydney. I know someone who did her bridging in ACN and one in ETEA. Mas relax daw ang ETEA. Both of them are my colleagues now. It wont matter nman kung saan ka nag bridging. Ang importante is AHPRA registered ka. Godbless!

    @ykcul_kcul Are you referring to PRC COGS? If yes, oo ok lng na scanned copy for SPA with scanned copy of ur PRC ID. Yan ginawa ko.

    @thenshow Before I will answer ur question, let me ask u first if may enough hospital experience ka ba? Like more than 3 yrs? If yes, u can go home and start ur PR application while doing online applications to different hospitals. Or u may apply for another tourist visa then apply2x dito sa Aus in person and online. U can choose. Pero may mga kakilala akong umuwi after bridging then online apps na at skype interview na mGA employers. Natanggap nman. Thru skype din kasi interview ko but I was in different state in Aus, hindi sa Pinas.
