There will be some increases in the fees for the IRON program or also known as AOC in NSW. Last year, the IHNA in Victoria, already started to increase their fees from AUD 10,000 to AUD 11,000. As of the moment the La Trobe University, Deakin University both in Victoria, and the College of Nursing in NSW, remained the same. Respectively their fees are AUD 9,900, AUD 10,000 and AUD 10,000.
However, some nursing schools in Australia that caters for the assessment of the overseas nurse in South Australia have the most expensive fees. Usually it ranges from AUD 12,000 up to AUD 16,000.
Some colleges, institutions and universities in Western Australia offers the bridging program for nurses but it is done either twice a year or once a year.
