    AGOS 40 Form

    Hello guys, I'm not sure if this is the right section for posting, so apologies in advance if it's not. My partner and I are currently in the process of filling out the AGOS 40 form, to apply for registration as a nurse in Oz. We're currently gathering all the forms and documents which are required, but the only section that we're having a little trouble with is the education transcript. We've spoke to the University where my partner completed her course, but they've come back and asked for an exact list of what is required; they've mentioned a document/attachment that shows what needs to be sent. We have a copy of the Fact Sheet for Criterion 8, which outlines what evidence needs to be supplied in for the units completed in respect of the administration of medication. The Degree certificate also shows all the units completed on the reserve, but we kind of assumed that this is not detailed enough? We're just looking for some guidance on the best way to go about this. Do we send the application with all the evidence we have, and ask the University to send all the documents requested in the Criterion 8 sheet, or is there a definitive list of anything further we need to send? Thanks in advance for your help. Dale
  2. Hi All, Is anyone aware of what the equivalent roles are in Aus for Sister, Senior Sister, Matron? Are the roles/responsibilities broadly comparable or does it work a bit differently? Has anyone moved from the UK into one of these sorts of roles in Australia? Or is there generally an expectation that you would find a job as a nurse first, then work your way up? I would be interested in anyone's experience of either stepping down and working their way back up or moving directly into a more senior role, and how they found the transition. We're planning on visiting Brisbane/SC/GC in May and were hoping to visit a couple of hospitals, with a view to meeting someone to discuss what it's like working at the hospital and what sort of vacancies they currently have. Planning on contacting HR and seeing if this is feasible/practical. Has anyone else done this? In terms of searching for available roles, how do people generally go about this? Contact hospitals directly, searching online, applying through agencies? Did anyone managed to secure a role prior to moving out? I'm asking on behalf of my wife, but I'm very interested to hear how it works too, as I've done a fair amount of searching and it doesn't seem entirely clear. Apologies, lots of questions, any info/experiences greatly appreciated! Regards BFB

    ANMAC experience

    Hi So I’m just working out my points to decide whether it’s an 189 or 190 visa I need to apply for.... it kind of depends on what ANMAC accept as experience. I have worked as a registered nurse for the last 5 years since qualifying with a diploma in nursing, I have recently topped up to a degree in order to apply for a visa so will my previous experience count or only my experience since obtaining the degree? Thanks in advance for anyone who has any info on this ?
  4. Hi, I need to revalidate this year, doing it for first time....anyone able to let me use them as NMC registered person to put as my reflective part? I can do the same in return. I don't know any UK nurses personally to do this for me having nursed in Aus now longer than I did in the UK. Not great options for those of us working out with the UK. Thanks

    Nursing Skilled Visa Help

    Hi everybody, I'm new to the skilled visa forum and would love any and all advice. I am a nurse (in the United States- we don't have a group like this to reach out to ) and I'm already registered with AHPRA. My partner is Australian and we want to move back to Australia this year. I was going to apply for the partner visa, but due to the cost and processing times I was advised that the skilled migrant visa might be the faster and more efficient route. That being said I have a few questions and would love any and all help. Can I travel to and from Australia while waiting for approval? Do I have to be outside of Australia when approved? After being approved was there a certain amount of time that you had to be in Australia by? And finally for nursing.... is it the general skilled visa migration visa 476/887? Sorry I'm asking all of the beginner questions. I found these answers to be much more readily available on the partner visa portion of the immigration website (and maybe that means they are stricter while verifying partner visas? but I have no idea really). Thank you all so much for your help! Lindsey

    189 visa Registered Nurse (paeds)

    Afternoon all, So i was getting giddy thinking I was all ready to submit my EOI with my 65 points...then I read people under 70 points are on a back log for being invited to apply! I'm struggling to find any nurses though to see if it is the same for us? If need be I can redo my ANMAC to get an extra 5 points but that just delays things and will add to cost! Any one going through or about to go through the application process able to give me any info? Thanks ? Lisa

    ANMAC Question

    Quick question, am I right in thinking once IELTS is passed and a suitable score obtained nurses/midwives etc have to then apply to ANMAC and once the skills assessment is approved then and only then can they apply for a skilled visa? once the visa comes through then AHPRA should be applied to due to the new rules?

    UK Nurse making the move

    Hi guys, I'm new to this forum. We're currently in the process of using a visa agent to hekp us with the migration process. We'll be going over on a 189 visa, my Husband is an Electrican but we'll both be going on my visa as hes not fully qualified over in Oz. I passed my Academic IELTS the second time and our visa agents have submitted my details to ANMAC for skills assessment. I know the current processing times for ANMAC are around 11 weeks. I was just wondering what other peoples recent wait times have been in ANMAC, 189 visa and APHRA? My Hubby has booked Rugby League World Cup final tickets for Brisbane for Dec 2nd!! Thanks in advance
  11. I know ultimately it will come down to myself to make this decision but need some more educated opinions I think to try and make my decision. Basically I'm a 24 year old Irish university degree trained General nurse. I've just about a year of experience and my plan had always been learn to drive (pay off my car, which is hopefully just about another year) and then go to Australia for a working holiday visa where I could get a feel for nursing there and work agency or whatever (or that was the dream plan anyway) However the hospital I'm currently working for has now offered up funding to do post graduate diplomas and certificates in my area of nursing (respiratory). The courses would begin in sept 2017 (length six months to a year) and because the hospital are funding it I would then be obliged to work for the hospital for a year post completion. So that#s thrown a spanner in the works. I'm tempted because this is obviously a very big opportunity. But by the time I have completed it I would be probably just about too old for a WHV, so would have to rethink plans all together. Especially while the 457 visa is a bit up in the air. My question is really would these postgraduates stand by me in Australia and would if be easier to find a job and such. Or would it really make no difference. I don't have any intentions to specialise at the minute and would like to continue working in a general medical setting. I would possibly still get funding after I come back from Australia, if I come back at all. But it's unknown year to year if funding will be there or not for these courses. I know it comes down to my decision ultimately but, having some outsiders opinions may give me some further food for thought
  12. Any recruitment agents out there? I moved to The Sunshine Coast 2 years ago, looking to move to Brisbane City to be with my Girlfriend My situation is I have current ahpra registration and I am currently working on the coast as an RN on a 457 visa i am looking for a full time RN position in the Brisbane area with an employer willing to take over my 457. any help would be amazing, thank you very much in advance

    Hi , i am looking help with applying for my ANMAC assessment. I have only qualified as a nurse so i do not have experience to get 3 months references. I am registered with AHPRA though so i can apply for a modified assessment and it states you do not necessarily need 3 months experience to apply. I want to know if not having experience will mean i will not be successful. does anyone have any experience of applying newly qualified? Thanks!
  14. Hi, looking for some general advice please. I'm a qualified midwife with ten yrs experience hoping to move to Melbourne in January with my family.

    Paediatric Nurses

    Hi, I'm Sophie, I moved to Sydney from England in June 2014. I'm a degree qualified paediatric nurse with 18 months experience. I applied for my AHPRA registration in April 2014. My application has still not been granted. Without being a negative joy-kill I just felt that it was important that I pointed out the realistic situation in Australia (particularly Sydney) for paediatric nurses. Not only has it been 8 months since I applied for registration but it is also clear there are zero jobs out here for paediatric nurses despite there being 2 paediatric hospitals. When I decided to move here everyone said 'oh, you'll get a job no problem!' 'they're screaming out for nurses!' Its not correct. I live in inner Sydney and there are currently no vacancies for paediatric nurses. I just want those paeds nurses out there to be aware of the current job situation & not to come over here expecting to fall into a job. I just wish someone had told me this before I had come out as I'm struggling to find even non-nursing work because my qualifications are so specific. Sophie

  19. So how different is nursing in aus compared to UK? What are the shift patterns like? How many days holiday? Do you get enhancements for working weekends? How many patients do you look after? How many nurses on a shift and nursing assistants? Also has anyone dealt with Healthcare Elite? I found that they've advertised jobs in aus and just wonder what peoples experiences were, Thankyou, Arby
