The Nursing Registration process comprises of 7 steps:

If you are an internationally qualified nurse or midwife (IQNM) who wishes to register in Australia, you will need to complete the Self-check before applying for registration. This is an online check where you will need to enter your qualification information into the Self-check. Based on your qualification you will be assigned to one of three streams for registration.

The three streams are:

  • Stream A – IQNMs who hold a qualification considered to be substantially equivalent, or based on similar competencies, to an approved qualification
  • Stream B – IQNMs who hold a qualification that is relevant to the profession, but is not substantially equivalent, nor based on similar competencies to an approved qualification
  • Stream C – IQNMs who hold a qualification that is not substantially equivalent or relevant to an approved qualification

*There is no fee to use the Self-check.

IQNMs that do not hold a relevant qualification (under section 53 of the National Law) or do not meet the required assessment criteria will need to upgrade their qualification in Australia before being eligible to apply for registration.  Click here to know more.

Those who successfully complete the self-check must proceed in the IQNM assessment process.

For IQNM assessment process students will need to pay a non-refundable assessment fee of $410 AUD.

This fee contributes towards AHPRA’s costs in checking IQNM documentation provided, and for the IQNM to undertake their orientation.

90 mins of video orientation and quiz based on that video.

At this stage you will have to upload all the attested documents as required.

Multiple choice questions examination, the NCLEX for RN’s (National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses) is an online test taken through Pearson VUE test centres in most countries.

Nurses are expected to utilise a contemporary evidence base and effectively demonstrate the safe practical application of nursing skills.

The fee for sitting the OSCE is $4,000 AUD. The OSCE fee replaces previous bridging program fees from private providers. This fee pays for AHPRA’s costs in running and maintaining the OSCE.
