    Hi Guys
    Spoke to a recruitment agent on the weekend in an expo in Birmingham, UK. He says that the ANMC (Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council) are going to waive the need for UK nurses to sit the IELTS exam as part of their skills assessment. Nothing on their website as yet. Anyone else heard this? One less hurdle if its true!

    Hi there Nikki still dont know how to work this system of threads, can never find my original threads or see if anyone replied my previous questions, only seeing one you replied end of last year! Maybe I'm just daft! lol anyway am sitting IELTS tommorrow and am scared:eek: I did my degree in Scotland but the questions just seem like they designed to trick you, I really hope i pass cause am freaking out. How you getting on and how far are you with the process? Another thing do you have to register with both ANMC and AHPRA am bit confused here too.

    Hi guys
    If applying for a 457 you don't need an assessment by the ANMC (part of which is an IELTS result) You just need to register with AHPRA. If you can prove to AHPRA that you studied your secondary education and nurse training in english, you do not need to sit the IELTS exam. My old uni has agreed to forward APHRA my training transcript which states that the training was in english.
    However, when the new DIAC rules come in in July, you get more points the higher your IELTS score. So, I've decided to go ahead with the IELTS exam which I sit in 2 weeks time simply because its valid for 2 years and 'sod's law' - someone somewhere during my application is bound to ask for it! The goal post seem to move constantly at the moment.
    So, I'm almost ready to submit my APHRA application as I now do not need to wait for the IELTS result.
    Hope this helps.

    I required the waiver issue directly with the ANMC and they have replied by saying the all international nurses requiring assessment with them must sit the IELTS exam.
