Nursing Registration in Australia

For international nurses that want to practise in Australia, you will require a sound understanding of Australian Nursing Standards and nursing practice. Australia has adopted a new two-part registration process for international nurses: NCLEX online test and a two-day OBA practical assessment.

To successfully pass Australia’s NCLEX and the OBA practical assessment a combination of good communication skills as well as nursing knowledge and practical nursing skills is required so you may be assessed against Australian nursing standards and practices.

Recent graduates may apply for registration (you require 3 months working experience as a registered nurse) however employers in Australia are also generally looking for a minimum of one to two years working experience, preferably in Australia.

Working in Australia is a great way to gain valuable insights and knowledge about how the health system operates and the important role nurses play in delivering care. This will both help you prepare for OBA assessments and mean you have valuable experience when you are looking for a job.

Do you have a current AHPRA Decision Letter?

If Yes, then Australia is calling. You will need to prepare for the NCLEX online test and your OBA assessment which is completed in Australia. You can also again valuable work experience in Australia and prepare for OBA by joining the six-month Australian Nursing Practice course.

If you do not have an AHPRA Decision Letter we are here to help as Bachelor qualified registered nurses with IELTS 7.0 in all four bands are eligible to apply for nursing registration in Australia.

Remember, employers are also generally looking for a minimum of one to two years working experience, and preferably in Australia.

So, combine Australian work experience with a valuable four-week clinical placement and OSCE preparation for the best outcome when you ace the practical OBA assessment.

Just follow these simple steps to fulfil your dreams to work as a registered nurse in Australia:

  • Prepare for NCLEX-RN and complete the test online before you leave home
  • Study Certificate III Ageing Support online (this will help you find a job). This course includes a valuable 3-week clinical placement which you complete when you arrive in Australia
  • Join the Australian Nursing Practice course online and complete three units over 8 weeks before you leave home!
  • Book your OSCE assessment date in Australia (assessments are held every three-months)
  • Travel to Australia five-weeks prior to your OSCE assessment date
  • Complete 4 weeks of intensive OSCE training (part of the ANP course), and ace your OBA assessment in Adelaide
  • Complete your AHPRA registration as a Registered Nurse
  • Finish off with even more valuable Australian work experience as an RN during a further 4-weeks of hospital placement which is part of the ANP course
  • Congratulations – you are now a registered nurse working in Australia
