    Congratulations on getting your visa - you said it wouldn't be long!

     

    We got our SS approved yesterday. The girls are booked in to stay at my mum's Friday night whilst we celebrate!! It may involve some wine. It may involve a lot of wine!!!

     

    I hope you celebrated in style ;-) What am I saying? You're a Barnsley lass - ofcourse you did!!

     

    So when are you off? Did you say summer time?

    Hi

    AHPRA have had my registration documents since October 2010!!!!

    They took the money in March this year and the same month contacted me to advise that they had lost three of my documents!!!!!

    Have now been advised that my application is going to panel in early June, but don't now how long it will be until I hear from them.

    So far not impressed with AHPRA.

    Good luck x

    Hi sent off my application at the end of jan and money taken 13th APril and havnt heard anything yet. Got in touch with Peyton again who said two weeks ago that they would be contacting AHPRA on my behalf and despite contacted them again they havnt returned my calls or emails- very frustrating as im waiting to get the registration back before i can apply for the modified skills assessment!

    Iv not heard anything since they took my money in April, I emailed them and they advised they are doing them all in chronological order and could not state where i was in the queue. Looks like we could still be in for a wait!!!

    I wish I knew what they were doing by the sounds of it they don't seem to know themselves :nah:

     

    All people want to know is what's happening and what stage in the process you are at!! This is people's futures that they are messing with and I don't know about anyone else but my stress levels are through the roof with all these applications and waiting and no knowing what's happening:arghh:

     

    Fingers crossed we all hear something soon....would love to hear that someone has had a positive response from APHRA;)

    I have read on Poms in Oz, that Perth are getting applications done much quicker, some in 6 weeks. I sent mine in by 18/4/11 and was given a contact name in Adelaide AHPRA by the nursing agency. I sent them an e-mail and explained about the Perth office being much quicker (and how this was an inequity in their service) and how my job offer will not allocate me to a base area until registration is sorted and BEGGED that I have some acknowledgement before I arrive in September! :-)

    Anyway, they e-mailed me the next day to say they had my application in front of them and would be processing it soon. Was impressed with the speedy response!

    I later had another e-mail stating that my NMC verification from the ANMC file, had now expired, so I had to request this again from NMC.....

    So, the wait continues:-(

    Hi! I found this site whilst doing a search myself. Im an Aussie, but I joined just to let you know that you're not alone in your frustration. Since the change over from the ANB (Australian Nurses Board) to AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulatory Authority) it has been a nightmare. I have a thousand questions for them and have not been able to get in touch either. Im just going to have to send in my registration and hope I have done the correct thing. The rules and legislations have changed and it took them so long to even get their information straight. If I can be of any assistance this end let me know, but just wanted to say that, yes, they are very badly organised even if youre an Australian nurse. :)

    Oh my god!! Got an email this morning! - I am pleased to inform you that the assessment of your application is now complete and you will be registered as a nurse in Australia as soon as you present to the AHPRA office with proof of your identity and meet criminal history requirements.

     

    :jiggy::jiggy::jiggy::jiggy:

    :cute: Ah hem, visa??

    Nearly sorted...ish! Agent is away this week so will be ringing him Tuesday to lodge. Will hopefully have all documents organised by then too (still waiting on stuff from Ian's accountant and suppliers) - so still within the time limits!

     

    Looking at other posts, COs are being allocated quite quickly at the moment. Ian had mentioned possibly having a visa by Xmas, which I thought was a bit 'pie in the sky', but now I think he could actually be right.

     

    'Tis all very exciting and scary stuff!!

    Got an extension to build before we can even think about putting the house on the market and LOTS of decluttering to start on. So if you know anyone up here who will buy toys in nearly new condition, point 'em in my direction. We have a LOT of them to shift!!! Perhaps it's time to become better acquainted with ebay, selling, not buying:)

    Yeah they seem to be allocating them quite quickly, keeping my fingers crossed for you guys! Once you have a CO get your medicals done then it will be a quicker process. Good luck with the decluttering...i have no idea where to start!! I have a very spoilt niece and nephew but i'll ask if they want any more toys! Looking forward to meeting you all when we get back up north :cute: xxx

    I am a british nurse and I renewed my ahpra registration this year. My expiry date was 31/12/2010 and they finally renewed two weeks ago!!! It then runs out at the end of this month!!

    I have just renewed again and it took 2hours. I think they are improving maybe.
