    Hello, I dunno if anyone will have the answer to my questions...



    I'm a registered nurse working in SCBU with 12 months post-
    registration experience and a degree in nursing. I'm 23 years old and
    want to apply for PR.



    I think my best option is STNI as I only have 12 months post-reg
    experience. I don't want to go down the sponsored route because I want
    to have the freedom of choosing where I want to work and im quite eager
    to for PR as i'd like to train as a midwife asap without paying
    international student fees.



    It looks like I have 60 points for a demand job, 30 points for age and
    20 for english language.



    I have 2 questions...



    Is it only Victoria,Tasmania and South Australia that offer STNI? If so
    is Victoria absolutly rigid about the area of nursing that you work in?
    I wanted to apply for 2323-11 but I work in SCBU which is slightly
    different to SCBU in the sense its less critical.



    Secondly, if I were to gain successful STNI and entered Australia how
    long would it be until I could attend university without paying
    international fees? I'm assuming it would be 2 years...



    Thanks for reading :-)

    Have you considered points for MODL? There's an additional 10 points
    there for registered nurses, 15 if you get a job offer.

    Only these states currently offer STNI.
    It may be better to apply for a non-STNI visa if you get to the pass
    mark of 115 (eg with MODL).

    You get priority processing (as a nurse) anyway and then you have
    complete freedom to live where you like in Australia.

    Secondly, if I were to gain successful STNI and entered Australia howlong would it be until I could attend university without payinginternational fees? I'm assuming it would be 2 years...
    see http://www.hecs.gov.au

    There's no 2 year wait period for HECS and it makes no difference
    whether you have STNI or another type of permanent visa.
