Registration standard for scheduled medicine endorsement – rural and isolated practice for public consultation
The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (National Board) is inviting all interested parties to give feedback on the public consultation on the proposal to discontinue the Registration standard for scheduled medicine endorsement registered nurses (rural and isolated practice).
The National Board invites submissions to consider, among other things:
- whether the proposal to discontinue the registration standard is supported
- the likely effect of the proposal on individual registrants, and
- jurisdiction-specific considerations for health practitioners, governments or other stakeholders.
The current standard is available under Registration standards on the National Board website.
