How to become a Registered Nurse in Australia

Becoming an overseas-qualified nurse working in Australia, like Asha Rajan pictured here, depends on a number of important factors, including:

  • The country where you undertook your nursing education
  • The nursing college/university you attended
  • Your nursing qualifications and experience
  • Your English Proficiency Level (Academic IELTS individual band scores of 7.0 or OET B in every band

For overseas nurses, registration can be a process based on verification of documents, such as:

  • Your identity: Passport & Birth Certificate
  • Your Nursing Education: Bachelor of Nursing or BSc in Nursing
  • Evidence of Registration as a Nurse in your home country
  • Your Nursing work experience
  • English Language proficiency: IELTS 7.0 all modules
  • Evidence that you have undertaken Continuing Professional Development (CPD) within the last 12-months

Nurses who were educated in countries not recognised by Australian authorities will be required to undertake an accredited bridging program of a 12-week duration in Australia. There are a number of accredited bridging programs available in Australia but the Universities are preferred because they are the institutions that train Australian nurses in the Bachelor of Nursing.

These programs are also preferred by Australian Employers as their nurses graduate “employment ready”. Nursing Careers Australia submits your application for registration to AHPRA and, if successful, enrols you in the appropriate University Bridging Program.

To find out more about this process, and how Nursing Careers Australia help overseas-qualified nurses successfully apply to AHPRA and enrol you in an approved University Bridging Program, register your interest here.
