    Hello everyone!:)

    This is my first post,since were following this thread for a month now,very excited to move to Adelaide.At the moment my wife is working in Sunderland Royal Hosp.assigned at Medical/Surgical,Vascular ward.We hear the news about IELTS to be implement after July 1st,any nurses want to work in SA.My wife's document is ready,but we need to look for fast express mail from UK to SA,NBSA,before 1st of July.My wife is really exhausted every after work,since they are understaffed and heavy workloads..We are a young couple wiyh 2 kids,age 4 and 2yrs.want to move and enjoy life under the sun.

    Hi all, I work on a Vascular Surgical ward ! always exhausted ha ha, I am awaiting the 175 visa to be granted. So this is what we did:

     

    Skills assessment with ANMC (12 weeks),

    Registration with SA nursing board (5-6 weeks)

    While awaiting registration with SA had applied online for 175 (early April 09)

     

    Now I have got the OK for registration in SA when I get the visa i will send off a form to get my pin number, its cheaper than the UK annual reg fee I think. It looks like I have missed having to do IELTS by about 1 month.....

     

    Good luck, Jane.

    Hello W@J!:)

    I dont know what type of visa we belong,as far as i know,wife will try RAH and get sponsored.At the moment,were in a hurry just to avoid the IELTS requirements of NBSA,before 1st of july.She dont want to sit on exam.,always tired after work and busy with the kids.To be honest,i'm happy now that she agree with me to move in SA,we had a lot of choices before,but finally we agreed in moving to SA.By the way,thanks for sharing your experiences on this thread..
