I cannot believe the length of time it takes to register as a Midwife with a nursing board in Australia!!! I initially started the process in September of this year. Just today I received a letter with a large list of outstanding requirements that is necessary in order to progress with my application.
I do not understand that the information such as transcript/curriculum of the course which was originally sent to the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council by my University (and was then forwarded onto the Nursing Board) is not good enough to register, but is actually good enough to be able to proceed with my visa application.
If the Boards would even consider E-mailing this information, instead of insisting it is sent by snail mail, things could happen much quicker!!!!! (Glad I got that off my chest).
