AHPRA is for the Australian nursing registration and ANMAC is for the skill assessment. Unfortunately I can't help with ahpra offshore as my case was different (I got registered while living in Australia). I believe there's a 'registration in principle' and you have to show up in present in Australia for the full registration... Look it up on the forum, someone's done it recently. Keep in mind that anmac takes about 4-6 weeks and ahpra is also lengthy process (and huge pain in the a$$). 

 

You're right Martina - you get granted registration in principle and then have to present to an AHPRA office within 3 months to complete the process.  There is an annual registration fee and everyone (irrespective of when they first registered - is due in May).

Hey Ali perhaps you can provide more details about the steps in this case? Like do they have to be registered in principle before lodging eoi? And when to proceed with anmac?

As you need to have passed the skills assessment in order to apply for a visa then this would be the priority, however, you can do both at the same time.  If you are already registered in Aus or NZ you can apply for a modified skills assessment.

I'm not aufait with the visa's but know that some require a job  offer.  In reality, you're probably  unlikely to get a job offer if you're not registered

She hasn’t yet. I believe it’s AHPRA that she would go to for the “skills assessment”

we are at the very start of the process so the English test has been done. We then need to send references, ielts score needs to be submitted, degree and transcript, passport photo, passport page and marriage certificate. Once we get the skills assessment go ahead we can then put forward our EOI. 

I think I’ve got this right??

thanks for your ongoing help. 

Hey!

Is your wife an overseas nurse or has she completed her graduation in Nursing in Australia itself? If she is an overseas nurse and is in the process of applying for AHPRA, I will be happy to tell you the process.

Hi. 

Yes she is a UK nurse with no Australian experience. She hasn’t started the registration for AHPRA yet. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Hi Peimika, 

I *think* chances for invitation actually depend on your ANZSCO code, so different for all types of registered nurses. I'm surgical and was invited within 3 days however, my friend who is NEC waited 4 months for invitation. Others I know with same points but different specialisation have been waiting for invitation since February. 

It would be only logical if they were inviting those who are most needed first. 

Hi Martina,

I have one question regarding to submitting modified skills assessment.

As my situation is that I worked overseas in medical ward for two years and my professional reference mentioned ANZSCO code Registered nurse(medical). And I am also got nursing bachelor degree in Australia this year.

When I wanna lodge the ANMAC application, I need to fill in one part which is "The ANZSCO code you are nominating to be assessed under____".

I contacted with agency, they advised that I should choose NEC as I got Australian degree and I also cant claim 5 points back. But my overseas work and professional reference mentioned Medical.I am not sure for this part in the application, do I need to choose Medical or NEC?

 As you know there might be a different waiting time for invitation based on the ANZSCO code. 

And one more thing, if I choose NEC on the application, after the officers assessed my professional reference, if they think I should belong to Medical, will they changed my nomination ANZSCO code based on the assessment by themselves or will they just reject this application because of two different ANZSCO code mixed in the assessment?

Thank you so much in advance. Appreciate!

Hi Rachel, 

If it was up to me I'd probably choose to go with medical. If that's what your professional reference says I don't see a reason why you should go with NEC? Did you work in Australia after you finished your bachelor degree there? But then gain, you're not claiming the 5 points so... If you send anmac your reference and your code as medical I can't see a reason why they'd reject it. 

Good luck

Hi, 

I've got a similar experience. I worked in medical ward overseas. I've got Australian Nursing degree as well (not bachelor, but Graduate Certificate). 

I didn't claim points for experience but I went under medical ANZSCO anyway and had no problem with ANMAC.

Thank you for your advice.

That's so weird, of course it doesn't matter because of claminig points. However, it does matter when it comes to waiting time for the invitation... I found that agents are usually confused with nurses, in my case I had three agents all of them saying and recommending different things. Make sure you have a good one!

I agree with Martina, it can difference for invitation. For example for NSW 190, NEC RN have to meet an additional requirement to get state sponsorship. 

Do you still have to provide with reference letter from your previous employer if you go with NEC? If yes, then it wouldn't make a difference applying with medical or NEC ANZSCO code, even if you don't claim points.

Hi, 

I'm not claiming any points for my overseas work experience (Vic just needed 2 years of experience and validated it themselves) and I had the same requirement on the upload page. I just uploaded every document I had to support my experience but not sure why they wanted it.. 

Hi Martina,

I have one doubt. For VIC state sponsorship via 190 for a registered nurse (Critical care & Emergency), you need to have 2 years of exp in your nominated occupation, does this means that the exp. has to be from VIC only or it can be from overseas as well?
I have 70+5 points for my 190 EOI for VIC which I submitted on 9th August, 2019. I have got in total of 4.2 years of exp. in my nominated occupation but that is all from the overseas. So, will I be eligible to get an invite from the state?
Thanks!

Heyya!

Thanks for a quick reply. I was actually worried because now there are no chances of getting an invite from NSW and my occupation has an additional condition and that is actually sad. Anyway, I'm hoping I will get invite from VIC, will have to wait though. Also, chances of getting invitation will probably increase (may be) after November as I will get 10 points for not having a partner. Fingers crossed. 🤞

Thank you so much @Lucky007

Of course it can be overseas experience. However, this experience must be recognised by ANMAC as far as I'm concerned. They'll recommend to the government how many years they've recognised but the final decision is still upon the immigration whether they'll give you the points for it or not.

I already have my skills assessed from ANMAC and I'm claiming 5 points for the overseas experience. Hopefully I will get an invite from VIC soon.

Hello Martina,

 

I'm currently awaiting for my anmac assessment which I'm applying for surgical, may I know much does anmac actually recognise oversea experience, do they only count in those since after a bachelor degree or they also include those when I have only diploma ? kinda worried about it as it matters so much to EOI sore...

also does surgical RN has more priority in getting a EOI invitation? I haven't decide which visa to go for yet at this stage.. 


From Singapore, AHPRA registration application submitted on 18/07/19, In-principle approval of registration subject to proof of identity Revd 09/10/19, anmac applied 15/10/19,
