Are you an internationally qualified nurse? Do you want to pursue your nursing career in Australia? But, don’t know how to get registered and start practice in Australia. Don’t worry! Here’s the short pathway for you.
Australian Health Practitioner Registration Authority (AHPRA) runs a bridging program, especially, for overseas nurses known as Initial Registration for Overseas Nurses (IRON) program.
The program is aimed to enhance nursing skills of current and qualified health professionals to adhere to Australian standards.
It is mandatory to provide the police check of all the countries one has lived for more than 6 months. Organisations like fit2work can easily do that for you. You have to pay the fees and you can get your ICHC done for any country that you want.
