The following downloadable forms relate to the nursing and midwifery professions. Where indicated, some forms also have online submission options.
Renewal of registration
Online application for renewal of registration opens six to eight weeks before your registration expires. AHPRA will send you a reminder when your registration is due. Look out for this as confirmation that online renewal is open.
If you do not renew your general or non-practising registration by 31 May each year, or within the following one month late period, your name will be removed from the national register of practitioners and your registration will lapse in accordance with the National Law.
Fast track applications
If your general registration lapsed on 1 July 2016 and you wish to keep practising you must make a new application for registration. In some cases you can use the fast track application for this process. The fast track process is only available for one month after your registration has lapsed.
A fast track application fee is payable in addition to a registration fee. If submitting a fast track application, you cannot practise until your application is approved and your registration details are updated on the national register.
