Nursing Career Help Australia

Under current regulations supplied by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia, it is a requirement of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA est 1992) for all registered nurses to achieve continued professional development points (CPD’S). Under the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme, nurses and midwives are expected to do a minimum number of hours directly relevant to the nurse or midwife’s context of practice.

Although a little daunting for some of us, the process is broken down into easy and manageable steps on our Career Help page. We provide a fact sheet with common questions and answers and give you clear instructions on how to convert your hours to points and how to log these with the Agency so a credit can be applied. This is imperative to maintain your registration and to be able to work as a nurse in Australia. With our help we can make these legalities a small and simple process in a career that, at times, can seem to take all we have.

Ideally, Nurse2nurse.com.au is a network for nurses in Australia to come together. We aim to give back some of the support that the nursing industry gives its public in care. We are the only website run by nurses for nurses and we welcome you to contact us and share your own experiences and tips. To share is to care. In nursing there’s no better cure.
