so who knows whats happening ... certainly not the ahpra!!!!

Sounds like he may need to just do it and get it over and done with as he seems snookered which ever way he goes.

I know what you mean polly!!

what i dont really get is why they felt the need to clarify something that was fairly clear already - ie that english speaking aussies who trained in aus didnt need the ielts, it was only internationally trained nurses that needed to do it. we get that.
what i dont get is why they are telling some people one thing then saying something different to others! my friend is still here in the uk, flying end oct, and has his visa/house sold etc ... he just wants to know where he stands.

Must be driving him nuts, its just so unfair cos its stressful enough anyway without being given the runaround by a body that ought to know what they are doing

Default Re: Do English-speaking/trained inurses still need IELTS?

Hi guys... just a quick bump for this thread, because this is news to me! I have only just shelled out the £110 and done the IELTS, and now there's the possibility I can send my application for Registration without - here's hoping!

My problem, however... I didn't finish secondary school! I was 'taken off register' in my final year, and didn't complete my GCSE's due to lack of attendance (fool I know). Would they accept my GCSE in English completed at 16 years old in College, though? And, I went right through to the end of year 11, only the last 3 months that didn't do GCSE's - what kind of evidence will I need to provide?


Anyone know the approx' processing times for NSW/AHPRA once application received by them? I have booked my one-way ticket for November, and I don't mind grafting in in any job until it arrives, but hoping the registration will not take more than 3 months?? (Sending my application beginning of September btw).

Any info, much appreciated! AHPRA never reply it seems P
