If you want to re-enter practice as a nurse or midwife, you have to complete one of the following Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (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
Our re-entry scholarships are linked to subsequent employment. You must commit to permanent full or part time employment (minimum 16 hours per week) in the NSW public health system for two years after successfully completing your NMBA approved re-entry to practice pathway and getting full registration.
If you take Pathway 1, scholarships are available to local health districts/specialty networks (LHDs/SNs) to support your supervised practice. If the NMBA has allowed provisional registration (with conditions), you may be employed during this time.
In Pathway 2, you could get up to $10,000 to complete a re-entry to nursing program approved by the NMBA.
