Portfolio

The information provided by candidates during the Self-check is checked by Ahpra at the Portfolio stage. At this stage, candidates must provide additional personal and contact information as well as identification and qualification documentation.

Who needs to complete the Portfolio stage?

Stream B candidates – Internationally qualified nurses and midwives (IQNMs) who complete the Self-check and are advised to continue as Stream B candidates will need to pay the IQNM assessment fee and complete Orientation Part 1 before completing the Portfolio stage.

IQNMs with qualifications requiring assessment – IQNMs whose qualification(s) are not available to select from the drop-down options in Self-check will be advised that Ahpra needs to assess their qualification. These IQNMs will need to pay the IQNM assessment fee and complete Orientation Part 1 before completing the Portfolio stage. Ahpra will then assess their qualification.

Once Ahpra has assessed the qualification(s), the candidate will be advised of their next steps to either:

  • continue in the IQNM assessment process as a Stream A candidate or a Stream B candidate, or
  • end their participation in the IQNM assessment process and upgrade their qualification if they wish to continue (as per advice provided to IQNMs assigned to Stream C).
