Return to nursing or midwifery

The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) Re-entry to Practice Policy for nurses and midwives provides guidance for nurses and midwives seeking to re-enter the workforce after 5 years or more. The NMBA have a list of approved programs of study for re-entry to practice.

The Department of Health does not currently offer any re-entry programs for nurses or midwives.

Nurse refresher programs are managed through individual Hospital and Health Services (HHS), and are offered at each HHS's discretion. Please contact the HHS for information about any available courses.
