To be eligible for employment as a Nurse or a Midwife in New South Wales, registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia is essential. This means that to be considered for a position with NSW Health, you must be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery board of Australia prior to application for a job with NSW Health.
Depending on where and when you completed your original nursing training, you will be required to submit documentation as proof of your qualifications as part of your application. As registration can take some time, it is important to commence the process of registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia as soon as possible.
It is important to note that if you are a Nurse, Midwife or overseas trained Nurse who holds registration in another state or territory of Australia, you may apply for registration under the Mutual Recognition Act to be recognised in New South Wales. Nurses registered in New Zealand may apply under the Trans Tasman Mutual Recognition Act.
For further information about registration in New South Wales, application forms for registration or about documentation and fees required for registration please refer to the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.
