AHPRA eligibility is useless

Many overseas trained nurses that applied in AHPRA who happened to received the eligibility letter and mostly, their eligibility letter expires for a year or less.

This eligibility letter either permits overseas nurses to undergo a bridging course so that they can register as Australian RN. However, although these people have an eligibility letter, they where having hard time looking for an institutions that will accept them in the bridging program, since all the schools that is conducting the program required an IELTS of 7 in all categories and it excuses no one, eventhough that you have been exempted by AHPRA.

This has become the traumatic experience of all nurses, and AHPRA would even claim that schools will accept nurses without IELTS, but it is not true at all.

Maybe AHPRA is waiting for another file to be filed against them in the Senate. From the drastic changes of the English language requirement to improper dissemination of information, it makes the dream of the overseas nurses to practice in their own profession.

There was one article that was written that although Australia is not showing how they discriminate other Races, they somehow, show it through implementing rules that will prevent other Races to succeed.

So sad that AHPRA and Australia is a big needle pin in the heart of aspiring nurses.

The changing policy of AHPRA

The changing standards of AHPRA when it comes to the English language standard is now a hindrance to those good nurses and doctors who wanted to gain registration in Australia. Last August 2011, AHPRA published a new revision of the language proficiency policy for all those professional that wanted to be registered in the said country. However, recently, AHPRA disseminated another revised policy for its required English language standard.

The changing decisions of AHPRA is now a big obstacle for all nurses and physicians who wanted to work down under. There was a parliamentary decision made with regards to the standard that was implemented by the said agency. Nobody can argue that English is very important in communicating with their patient or people, but, it does not mean that if you score high or achieved an IELTS score of 7 or higher you will be a good nurse, as stated by one of the complainant.

Just a month ago, there are many applicants who already had an eligibility letter that are having hard time in looking for a school for the bridging, because although AHPRA exempted the future professionals in Australia from the English test, various institutions and schools do not honor the eligibility letter without the IELTS.

According to some of the institutions, they were just trying to protect their interests and their students as well, because they knew how unreliable AHPRA is when it comes to the English language proficiency standard.

One research claimed that IELTS became the basis of English proficiency due to profit matter.
