Nursing and Midwifery Recruitment

Everyone at some point in their life has been cared for by a nurse. We work with nurses, midwives and practitioners who deliver high quality care, sometimes at short notice, but often for permanent placements across a range of hospital, aged care and call centre settings.

Whether you’re looking for last minute shifts, a short term contract or a fixed permanent position, we have opportunities throughout Australia’s main urban centres, as well as exciting placements in beautiful rural and remote Australia.

No two jobs are the same and nursing is no exception. Whether you’re a ward, clinic or theatre nurse or if your passion is orthopaedics, oncology, paediatrics, plastics, ophthalmology, oral-max or even general medicine, we can help you find a role that suits your preferred location and area of expertise.

I am trained overseas, how do I register as Nurse in Australia?

You will need to be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA). The NMBA in partnership with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), is responsible for assessing all internationally qualified nurses and midwives (IQNMs) who want to practise in Australia.

There are two registration requirements you need to meet to be eligible to apply for registration with the NMBA:

  1. The registration standards – define the requirements that applicants must meet to be considered fit to practise as nurses and midwives.
  2. The qualification assessment criteria – define the minimum acceptable education and training that IQNMs must have completed.

Before you apply for registration, you will need to provide your qualification and other details through Self-Check. If your qualification is available to select from the list and you complete the ‘Self-Check’ you will be assigned a stream as assessed by AHPRA. Each stream will have different steps you must complete before registration application eligibility. Please note that the Self-Check only identifies the required assessment stages for IQNMs seeking registration. It does not assess whether an individual can meet the eligibility requirements for registration.

Registration standards define the requirements that you will need to meet to be registered.

  • Registration standard: Criminal history
  • Registration standard: English language skills
  • Registration standard: Continuing professional development
  • Registration standard: Professional indemnity insurance arrangements
  • Registration standard: Recency of practice

For more information see the NMBA’s registration standards.

New Zealand Nurses who hold current registration, may apply for registration via Trans-Tasman mutual recognition.

If you are seeking to migrate to Australia under the General Skilled Migration program you will be required to have your skills assessed by Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council’s Skilled Migration Services. They are the independent assessing authority authorised by law to conduct these assessments by the Australian Government Department of Home Affairs.
