I am going to see if I have anyone on Facebook who can do it but I do not think so, so it looks like we will be paying £120.

Thanks for the help.
Hie sorry for late response it appears £120 is your best bet.Strange how courts charge different fees you would think it will be same across all counties..

Hope you sorted.

Update getting frustrated.

Well email came through today I have to resend my criterion 5 which asks about clinical hours ,apparently it has to be certified .
The one sent was original and it was signed by head of school of health ..really AHPRAH feel like giving up.They can see its from university I responded and said can uni electronically verify I know they will say no but just thought I would try .

Although I was liaising with Perth office I have noted that it's Sydney office dealing with my application now.Pulling my hair out...

We have an appointment with a Notary on Friday so will hopefully have it sent this week! £120 + VAT for 10 documents, however I have counted the university document as 1 and i have a feeling they will count it as multiple (it has many many pages).

I have not checked all the details that university have sent us but they said they have done this before and that what they sent meets the requirements. I will double check this tonight now you have said that though!

Make sure you check it and double check pharmacology /medicine management.Have you had from fit2work yet? they are usually quick.Will wait for their response to my email but have since email the lady who assisted me last from my uni to redo a confirmation of clinical hours letter.

Sevenpot please shed some light regarding your clinical hours confirmation criteria 5 .

Yes Fit2Work has come back.

The clinical hours is simply a list of hospitals/wards and weeks worked with an hours to weeks conversion, signed and on headed paper. My only concern with this is that they have abbreviated the hospital names and wards, but this is listed in detail again on the CV.

There are a couple of letters regarding the pharmacology/medicine management side of things, the first explains the course follows EU directives which require all nurses to do this and references the relevant sections in the course outline, and the second is the EU directives list/explanation stating this is a requirement for UK nurses.

All of this comes with a coversheet with a check list so I may send this as well.

Your program of study included a minimum of 800 hours of workplace experience* providing exposure to a variety of healthcare settings.

*Definition of workplace experience is taken from the 2012 ANMAC Registered Nurse Accreditation Standards, and used with permission:

‘a component of nursing education which allows students to use judgment when applying theoretical knowledge in an actual practice setting. Includes concept of 'clinical training' as set out under National Law.’


Hey guys I can't seem to find the old version of IQNM 1-8 which told us what an applicant had to provide or what your place of study has to sent direct to AHPRAH that version did not ask for evidence to be certified it only says provide the evidence of work place hours

That is a relief Zulu.

The application is now in the post, sent by Royal Mail tracked at £19! Had to pay £165 to get the documents notarised, he made all copies himself and each document was signed and bound to his template and sealed with ribbon/sticker as well as being stamped.

For anyone else out there the following was certified:
Degree certificate + transcript
Degree course outline (90 pages)
Letter from Uni explaining pharmacology etc.
Letter from Uni stating hours on placement
Letter from AQA stating GCSE's were taught and assessed in English with a transcript of results (School has closed down so had to go to the examining board!)
Work reference/testimonials each with a job description for each of the 3 jobs held since graduation
Passport
Driving License
Bank Statement + Credit Card

Along with this was a copy of the Fit2Work cover page and a signed CV.

I think (HOPE) this is everything.

Oh, I was looking for this last night and could not find it either! They seem to have move or removed it. It was a nice table listing what you send and what the other institue sends, but I went through all the AHPRA website and could not find it.

Firstly well done on posting the pack I bet you guys feel relieved.which office did you send it out too?

yes I am relieved for now until they email me again which I hope not....

Yes that form has vanished lucky enough I had a copy and had scanned it to my uni so they could use to prepare my evidence they sent directly to Aussie.So I used that and quoted it to my registration officer to say that was not a requirement hence the agreement to have university electronically reconfirm.

Hope u guys checked all the new guidelines that they rolled out July they have changed a bit on English requirements ..just a bit but am sure you should be okay...

I didn't think to check the registration form date, the one submitted was dated 4th Feb (downloaded last month), there is however a new form now! The only differences are that the English language requirements section has more details. The criteria is met, however the wording now states that proof needs to be sent directly to AHPRA, whereas I have included the letter in the application.

Hopefully as the form is only a week old they will let it pass!!

I am not liking this waiting!

It left Heathrow on 11/07 but still had no update on Royal Mail tracking, and nothing has come out of the bank yet so not sure if they have it, I will give it until Thursday before chasing as it said 4-7 day delivery.

I used Royal Mail International Tracked but reading online the tracking is unreliable once it leaves the UK, wish i'd paid more now for DHL or something.

Any update on your applciation Zulu?
