The IELTS may not be required for AHPRA but it is for the ANMC full skills assessment and 176 visa application. If you are short on points, it gives you an extra 5, so well worth it then! All the best, it all takes time and patience:)

I came here on a 457 visa, then transferred to a state sponsored, can;t remember the exact type, but I didn't sit the IELTS or whatever it is for either visa or my registration. However, i was registered with the state of SA ebfore aphra began, so maybe that effects things. This was meant to be helpful but its probably gonna confuse you more. Sorry if thats the case.
Hi, my name is Stephanie, I too am a neonatal nurse here in England at the moment. Unfortunately you do need to sit the academic IELTS test at a cost of £120. I am trained here too in England but you still have to sit it to get your skills assessed. You have to score 7 or more in each section as well as an overall score of 7 or more. You can not get your skills assessed without it.
I too av spoken to the Womens & Childrens Hospital for their neonatal unit and had a lovely reply from a lady called Pauline.
Have a look into it as you need your IELTS certificate for state sponsor too. I have currently passed my IELTS and had a positive skills assessment certificate. we are just in the process of applying for state sponsor.
If you need any help let me know,
Sorry to be bearer of bad news.
