Sharing my personal expenses back in 2017 so there may be changes with the current fees. Mine is a DIY application through Bridging Program.

For those who are starting their journey, there may be additional expenses like visa application, air fare ticket, food and accommodation here in Australia, and probably some more other miscellaneous.

If you have the time to do research about the requirements and application, it is possible to do it on your own, like what I did. Otherwise you may opt to inquire to an agency keeping in mind for additional payment.

    1. This is helpfull. Though my son wants to be a doctor, it’s still a very good option to finish & pratice nursing. I’ll keep this for reference. Nabutas man madaming bulsa nyo, it’s worth the pagod and gastos. Good luck and keep safe.

  1. Oh my, mapapapikit-mata ka na nga lang talaga sa gastos, but I’m sure this will all be worth it once you start working as an RN in Australia. πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you for sharing this. This is a nice way to inform those who are interested to apply for registered nurse sa Australia na DIY is possible and mas malaki ang matitipid plus the lessons learned tlagaa ang mas mahalaga.

  3. This is helpful, I will share this to my sister who currently resides in Abu Dhabi. She is an RN planning to transfer to Australia or Canada.

  4. Oh my, how expensive din pala, but of course, hindi naman ito isang payment lang. Great post and I’m sure this will help many individuals planning to get into this career.

  5. Medyo marami-rami rin pala ang expenses ppero I’m sure magiging sulit din naman yan in the long run. I enjoyed reading your post and watching your video.

  6. Very helpful and informative article. I know a lot of us have a relative who is a nurse and may want to seek greener pastures. Also, I heard that after some time, those who are working as nurses in Australia can also get secure Visas for their immediate family members so that they can be with them.

  7. 12 years ago I was told that I will be only shelling out like half million for all the expenses. But I am surprised to see how it ballooned like this. I just hope there will be an increase in salary here in the Philippines so that our fellow nurses will not have to leave their families here! Kudos to you fellow nightingale!

    1. Yes, hopefully talaga tumaas din ang sahod ng mga nurses sa Pinas. And one more thing, to be more recognized as professionals. Minsan nakakalungkot na sa foreign land pa mas nabbigyan ng credit.
