Nurses and midwives without current registration

The requirements for nurses and midwives to re-enter practice are determined by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) and require the completion of one of the following NMBA approved re-entry to practice pathways:

Pathway 1: A period of supervised practice

Pathway 2: Completion of a NMBA approved re-entry to nursing program

For further information on re-registration, see the NMBA Re-entry to Practice Policy and the Framework for the assessment of nursing and midwifery applicants for re-entry to practice.
