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 your practice in Australia? Don’t worry! Here’s the short pathway for you.
As per the new registration process by AHPRA, the IRON program has been replaced by Outcome-Based Assessment (OBA) for internationally qualified nurses and midwives who want to start practice in Australia.
The OBA is aimed at assessing the nursing skills of current and qualified health professionals to adhere to Australian standards.
It is a two-step assessment involving a multiple-choice questions exam (NCLEX) at the first stage and an objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) at the second stage.
This assessment enables you to get your registration as a nurse in Australia. It helps you upgrade your skills and knowledge to the level that that is required for nursing health force
You become more employable after the assessment.
It serves as an initial, stable and secure pathway to PR.
To take the OBA, all applicants must have a referral letter from AHPRA. AHPRA will assess the eligibility of the applicant based on the five registration criteria outlined by NMBA
Once AHPRA has assessed your application, it will issue a referral letter to complete OBA. The applicant can proceed with OBA steps once they receive the referral letter from AHPRA.
