Dear forum, I recently posted stating that I had been to the AHPRA offie and been told that the IELTS exam was not needed. I have spoken with someone from the agency Peyton O'Grady who said that they had received written confirmation from AHPRA management that the official rule now is:
UK NURSES HAVE TO DO THE IELTS!
Blimey, the confusion. I am sorry for stating so self righteously that i had been there and been told not to do it. It appears that according to the agency (who have very close links with AHPRA) uk nurses do now have to do it, for 457 visa and anyone going on permanent residency!
Boooooo......so good luck to all still to sit it
