The Return to Practice or Initial Registration of Overseas Nurses - Registered Nurse course is a non-award course for nurses who: a) have previously been registered in Australia, but have not had sufficient nursing practice in the preceding five years OR b) are wishing to obtain initial registration in Australia.
The course is made up of 6 weeks of theory and 4 weeks of clinical placement, normally conducted over a 10 week period. Depending on the availability of clinical placements and other clinical requirements the duration may extend to 14 weeks.
On successful completion of the course the student will be eligible to apply for registration as a Registered Nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA). Note: the NMBA has registration requirements that must be met in order to register. Course completion is one of these requirements.
