Some good news for nurses

Hi All,


We have just advised our Australian clients of the revised registration requirements by the Australia Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.

Please be aware that this is specifically for Nurses and providing the correct documentation can be supplied, regarding a minimum english background, for example: going to an english school, doing a qualification in an english medium institution, it is unlikely that they would be required to sit the IELTS exam.

Please do remember however, that you still may be required to sit the general IETS exams, in order to claim the necessary points to pass the relevant Residency pass mark in force at the time of the application currently 65 points.

Bottom line, it certainly makes the registration pathway easier, and once registered, you could look at doing a work visa, because getting a job should be easier, however, we would recommend, that whatever pathway you choose, you must be aware, that you should have lodged a residency application, before the changes come into effect in July 2012.
