Registration – Local and overseas
Local registration requirements are different from overseas registration requirements. Sydney Nursing School can provide assistance in that process.
If you have successfully completed a nursing or midwifery course in Australia, you are eligible* to apply for registration as a nurse through the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia which supervises registrations and renewals.
The Board will provide you with the statutory guidelines for registered nurses and midwives. Members of the public are entitled to expect nurses and midwives to conduct themselves in accordance with these guidelines and standards. The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) supports the NMBA and is responsible for regulating the health professions. Their primary role is to protect the public and they set the standards and policies that all registered health practitioners must meet.
Revised NMBA English Language Skills Registration Standard
A revised English language skills registration standard has been in place since 2011. For detailed information on the English language requirements for registration, please go to the NMBA website.
If you require OVERSEAS REGISTRATION, a different process will apply.
