Renew before 1 July to stay on the national registers for nurses and midwives

22 Jun 2018

Nurses and midwives who are yet to renew their registration must do so before 1 July 2018 to keep practising.

Nurses and midwives who do not renew before 1 July will have lapsed registration and their name will be removed from the national online registers of nurses and midwives, meaning they can no longer practise.

Inclusion on the national registers for nurses and midwives is evidence to current and prospective employers of being registered to practise as a nurse or midwife. Registration keeps the public safe in the knowledge that their nurses and midwives are qualified and competent to practise.

Nurses and midwives logging in to renew online need to ensure they tick the ‘I’m not a robot box’ on the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) website to access online renewal. This extra step means you can have greater confidence in the security of our online services.

Individuals whose registration lapses will need to make a new application for registration. They will no longer appear on the national registers of nurses and midwives and will not be able to practise.

Renew online today – it’s easy.
