      Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) language skills registration standard (2019)

      The NMBA has recently released information regarding a revision to the current English language skills registration standard released in 2015, for nurses seeking registration with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) at the conclusion of their Diploma of Nursing studies.

      There are three (3) pathways that may be used in the demonstration of English language competence at registration.

      • Primary Language Pathway

      • English Language Test Pathway, or

      • Extended Education Pathway

      The existing requirement for registration using the Extended Education Pathway – enrolled nurses, is to have completed at least five (5) years (full-time equivalent) education in English within one of the recognised countries. As of March 2019, evidence of education is required to be continuous education over the five (5) years full-time equivalent period, which must be completed within a 7 year time frame. This allows for part time study to still meet the requirement.

      This can include the Board approved qualification of the Diploma of Nursing. If you do not meet the above requirement and decide to proceed to enrol into the Diploma of Nursing qualification, you may be deemed not to meet the new NMBA registration requirements on seeking registration. You may then be required to undertake a recognised English language test, (IELTS, OET, PTE or TOEFL iBT).

      Please see the NMBA website for further detail: https://www.nursingmidwiferyboard.gov.au/News/2018-10-24-revised-esl-standards.aspx
