nurses beware

    Just a quick note to all UK nurses who are migrating and have had a positive skills assessment and been told they are eligable to register with the nursing board as I was!!

    prior to my arrival in South Australia i rang the sa NMC they assured me all i had to do on arrival was to report to the office with my passport as photo ID and I could register immediately simple as that, however it has not worked out like that, on arrival at the office i was told their is a backlog of applications and it could take up to 2 months to register, so i am now working as an PCA (personal care worker) with an agency until i get my pin number through, I was gutted but just have to get on with it until such time as i can nurse again, i have posted this just to warn you all as I was really shocked!!!!!!!:confused:

    Hiya

     

    Sorry to hear that. was only talking about you the other day ( hope you got my PM) and wondering how you were getting on.

    I have already registered with SA before the changed to AHPRA and have a registration number. Is that all i need to work straight away?? or do i also have to register when i get there??

    I dont want to make any mistakes, as i will need to get into earning some money quickly

     

    Thanks

    Donna
