ACN consultations

The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) has released an advanced copy of the revised Policy for re-entry to practice for nurses and midwives (2019). The Policy for re-entry to practice for nurses and midwives enables a consistent approach to decisions relating to people who have previously held registration in Australia as a nurse and/or a midwife, seeking to re-enter the professions. The revised policy will come into effect on 11 February 2019. You can view the advanced copy and the fact sheets on the Re-entry to practice page.

ACN is seeking any feedback on the revised Policy for re-entry to practice for nurses and midwives (2019) and fact sheets to submit to the NMBA. Please complete ACN’s survey by Wednesday 12 December 2018.

The South Australian Parliamentary Committee on Occupational Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation is conducting an inquiry into workplace fatigue and bullying in South Australian hospitals and health services. ACN is preparing a response to the inquiry and welcomes your input to the terms of reference.

Please complete our survey by 6 January 2019.
