Steps after Self-check (assessment stages)

When an internationally qualified nurse or midwife (IQNM) completes the Self-check they will be advised if they are in Stream A, B, or C, or if Ahpra needs to assess their qualification(s) before assigning a stream.

The stream is dependent on which qualification assessment criteria an IQNM’s qualification(s) meets (see Meeting the registration requirements and Completing the Self-check for more information on qualification assessment and the streams).

IQNMs in each stream must complete a different number of steps (assessment stages) before they are eligible to apply for registration. Stream A and Stream B IQNMs who choose to proceed in the IQNM assessment process are considered to be ‘candidates’.
