Licensure for Registered Nurses in Australia
It is required that any Registered Nurse be admitted to the Australian Boards of Nursing before starting employment in Australia.
PHP recommends the Nurses Board of Southern Australia. The NBSA has a legal responsibility to verify your qualification with your local nursing authority to ensure that your experience is that of international standard. Once you have completed the necessary documentation and returned it to the NBSA the assessment process can be completed. The process of registration can take anything from 3-6 months.
Membership with the NBSA is valid for one year and is renewable on an annual basis in August each year. You will be required to forward an original copy of your Transcript of Training and Verification from your current board of nursing directly to Australia.
