You can just do the skill assessment without first registering but would then have to do the full assessment http://www.anmc.org.au/docs/Internat...07original.pdf
This is the process http://www.anmc.org.au/docs/Internat...20Purposes.pdf
You don't need to be registered to be skill assessed or to apply for the visa but it does save money and time on the skill assessment front. Hope this makes sense and helps. Any probs let me know.
Thank you so much for the info.Its so difficult to know what to do. Think choosing where i work with an agency is probably the safer option. Will just have to wait a little longer.
What are the gradings over there? Am currently a 7 (G),not sure what i want to do,not fussy really. Can you do longdays on the agency?
Hope to hear from you soon
a very grateful Amie and co
Thanks to everyone who has replied to my thread.
Will let u all know our progress>
Oh my God, we're gonna do it
sorry for my bad typing DJANGO
thanks for invaluable advice you have saved me hours of sitting in front of the laptop.
will get on to it straight away
i am a rn also (theatres) and i emailed my cvs to hospitals in SA..got positive feedback from most (RAH,QEH,repat, Flinders).....QEH are on a recruitment drive at the mo so was offering sponsorship, but, with 2 kids thought PR would be best..the others all said let them know when i had more def plans.
we want to go north so the QEH is my 1st choice but they all looked good
