Confused nurse AHPRA / IELTS / OET

Recommended Posts

Hi, We have applied for both a 190 NSW  75 points and a 189  70 points visa through my husbands occupation as a lift mechanic, we understand that the selection process has slowed down considerably and therefore we are thinking of adding myself onto the application to enhance our points.

If we decide to add me onto the application I will have to have my skills assessed by ANMAC and require the IELTS or one of the other tests.

However, if we don't add me on but I still wish to work as a nurse in Australia do I need to complete the IELTS, for just AHPRA application? 

Also has anyone tried the OET and felt that a B is achievable?

we are from the UK and all my schooling has been in the UK. 

 

Thank you

Because all your education was taught and assessed in the UK. I think you do not need the IELTS for AHPRA. I looked it up for someone on here a while back and I believe it tells you right on the application.

I did not need the English test for AHPRA and my education was from Australia and Canada.

There was a thread called nursing in Australia posted in Jan this year and this is what I posted:

This is a copy of the new AHPRA registration standards for March 1st 2019.

 

If you are applying for initial registration you must demonstrate your English language competency in one of the following ways:

 

1.    English is your primary language and:

 

a.     you have attended and satisfactorily completed at least six years of primary and secondary education taught and assessed solely in English in a recognised country, including at least two years between years 7 and 12, and

 

b.     your tertiary qualification in the relevant professional discipline, which you are relying on to support your eligibility for registration under the National Law was taught and assessed solely in English in a recognised country and:

 

              i.        in the case of a registered nurse and/ or midwife, you must provide evidence of having successfully completed at least a two (2) years full-time equivalent pre-registration program of study approved by the recognised nursing and/or midwifery regulatory body in a recognised country.

 

             ii.        in the case of an enrolled nurse, you must provide evidence of having successfully completed at least a one year full-time equivalent pre-registration program of study approved by the recognised nursing and/or midwifery regulatory body in a recognised country.

 

 

 

2.   Registered nurses and midwives

 

 

 

If you are applying for registration as a registered nurse and/or midwife, you must provide evidence that you have successfully completed at least five (5) years (full-time equivalent) continuous education taught and assessed solely in English, in a recognised country, which includes tertiary qualifications in the relevant professional discipline which you are relying on to support your eligibility for registration under the National Law

 

The Board will only accept the successful completion of five (5) years (full-time equivalent) continuous education that is a combination of:

 

a)        tertiary and secondary education taught and assessed in English; or

 

b)        tertiary and vocational education taught and assessed in English; or

 

c)        combined tertiary, secondary and vocational education taught and assessed in English; or

 

d)       tertiary education taught and assessed in English

 

The last period of education must have been completed no more than five years prior to applying for registration.
