Enrolled to Registered Nurse or Midwife Applications

If you are an enrolled nurse due to complete an approved program of study that qualifies you for registration as a registered nurse or midwife, you may submit an application to AHPRA as follows:

Enrolled nurse applying for registration as a registered nurse

You can either apply online or by sending AHPRA a paper form:

  1. Apply online for registration as a registered nurse. You must be currently registered as an enrolled nurse holding general registration with the National Board. You will still need to provide the required supporting documentation. You need a Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card and an email address to apply online.

  2. Complete the paper form AGEN-40 and send it into AHPRA along with the supporting documentation, as instructed on the form. 

    AGEN-40 can be downloaded from the forms page.   

    Note: If you are a (currently registered) enrolled nurse applying for registration as a registered nurse, and you have never practised previously as a registered nurse, you are not required to provide a work history as part of your application. You are also not required to provide proof of your English language skills as you have met this requirement in your registration as an enrolled nurse.

The online service is not yet available for an enrolled nurse wishing to apply for registration as a midwife. Complete the paper form AGEN-40 and send it into AHPRA along with the supporting documentation, as instructed on the form.

AGEN-40 can be downloaded from the forms page.

Note: If you are a (currently registered) enrolled nurse applying for registration as a midwife, and you have never practised previously as a midwife, you are not required to provide a work history as part of your application. You are also not required to provide proof of your English language skills as you have met this requirement in your registration as an enrolled nurse.

Important note:

You can hold dual registration as an enrolled nurse and a registered nurse (see the factsheet for more information). If you want to give up (cease) your registration as an enrolled nurse, midwife or registered nurse, complete the form (NSUR-40). Please note: Your registration will cease when the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia receives your request, unless you specify in the form the date from which you want your registration to end. No refunds apply.
