UK Nurse new to forum

Hi, I am a LD nurse from midlands in the UK. I am at the start of the process of registering my nursing in Australia. I have the chance of a job in Melbourne depending on the timescale and their ability to sponsor me. So far, I have done my IELTS and submitted my documents to ANMAC for assessment,,these were received by them last week. I understand it will take up to 12 weeks for the assessment, then I can apply for nurse registration. The timescales seem to be the most frustrating at the minute, although I am unsure as yet what I will need to do for registration and whether I apply for a visa myself or hope that I may be sponsored. Luckily my sister lives in Australia and we had a great time visiting over Christmas, which helped us to make the biggest decision of our lives, my wife and 2 children of 6yrs and 8yrs.
So far I am going through the process myself, but would be interested in thoughts regarding the need for an agent, any information on the nurse registration process and timescales. Thanks. Paul

Hi Norman, the process is a long one, the timescale for my skills assessment with AMNAC increased to about 14 weeks, the a wait for the letter, I then submitted my documentation for nursing registration with APHRA, I have had to submit additional documentation for them and I am currently waiting on documents from my NMC to reach APHRA. Their wait time is about 9 weeks once all the documents are received. Timescales are increased by gathering the information and having it authorised by a notary, in my case a magistrate. Next steno will be to apply for state sponsorship and submit an Eoi for a visa. As with everything, it is time and money, but hopefully worth it in the end.

Hi Arbrodin, if you are from the UK and can prove you went to an English speaking school I don't think you have to do the IELTS assessment. I realise it is too late as you have already done it but I would check if I were you because it could mean you could start the registration process now without waiting for the results. That is if you meet the requirements. Don't take my word for it though, you should email AHPRA. The registration can take a lengthy time depending how busy they are. You should get in there before all the graduate nurses! Registration is from May to May over here for some reason too. Anyway there's information here about IELTS and exemptions.
