NMBA stakeholder information forums

21 Mar 2016

The NMBA has published a number of revised registration standards and guidelines to its website.

As part of its engagement activities with nurses and midwives the NMBA is hosting stakeholder information forums across Australia during 2016. These forums provide an opportunity for nurses and midwives to learn more about the changes to the NMBA’s registration standards, standards for practice and guidelines that will come into effect on 1 June 2016.

Last week the first two forums were held at Cairns Hospital and Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane which drew a great crowd. Thank you to all the nurses and midwives who attended.
