IHM was awarded accreditation in 2019 to deliver the Entry Program for Internationally Qualified Registered Nurses (EPIQRN) bridging program. The new process for the bridging program shifted to OBA (Outcome-Based Assessment), and AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency) will be in charge of conducting the two national examinations.
IHM began offering the GCAN Australian Nursing Practice course with the goal of assisting IQNM’s (Internationally Qualified Nurses and Midwives) in acquiring the necessary knowledge as well as the necessary amount of hands-on experience to satisfy the AHPRA standards necessary for registration
Internationally qualified nurses and midwives (IQNMs) who complete the AHPRA Self-check and are advised to continue as Stream B candidates are those IQNMs who hold a qualification that is relevant to the profession but is not substantially equivalent or based on similar competencies to an approved qualification. IQNMs who are assigned to Stream B and must complete an Outcome Based Assessment (OBA) will benefit greatly from taking the GCAN Australian Nursing Practice course.
* This course does not lead to direct registration as a Nurse or Midwife in Australia. IHM can assist with the complete processing of AHPRA registration for students enrolling in GCAN Australian Nursing Practice.
