Nursing Skills Assessment

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

Information for anyone considering submitting their nursing skills assessment.

 

I am a 8 years qualified registered nurse (adult) currently working in a a walk in centre. Previously I was a research nurse for a university and before that a ward and out-patient based staff nurse.

 

I submitted my skills assessment which covered the last 4 years. I had to include a statement of service with exact dates for my last 2 positions and a comprehensive breakdown of my duties (which was more or less a copy of my job description). I also had to provide a detailed professional reference from my current employer. Plus $650!

 

My agent submitted it on 19th March 2009. I was a little worried in case the research or the walk in centre work wouldn't be suitable enough for them, but it was successfully approved on 11th May 2009.

 

A total of 7 and a half weeks.


Got to love QLD- No worries, all good, too easy!

Would anyone happen to know if my previous institution that i have worked with does not practice writing professional references, is there any way to work around that?

Hi rachloe,

 

For ANMAC you absolutely need a professional reference it is one of the requirements, written by a registered nurse that supervised your practice. So, it doesn't have to be from the institution itself, did you have a senior nurse in charge of you that would help?

Would that be sufficient?

 

i was under the impression that it would be a letter from my nursing manager that is required.

That is what I used as my manager no longer in service, it might be worth consulting a migration agent to check but my skills assessment was positive and I am now at medical/ police check stage. Good luck!
