Call for applications for appointment to the State and Territory Boards of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia

The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme regulates more than 700,000 registered health practitioners and over 160,000 registered students across 16 health professions.  It also accredits over 740 approved programs of study delivered by over 330 education providers.

The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia’s primary role is to protect the public particularly through setting standards, codes and guidelines to guide nursing and midwifery practice. The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) manages the registration and notification handling processes for registered health practitioners and students.

The NMBA’s state and territory boards are delegated functions to make registration and notification decisions about nurses and midwives.

Applications are now sought from registered nurses, enrolled nurses and midwives to fill multiple practitioner member and chair vacancies arising in the following jurisdictions:

  • New South Wales – 1 practitioner member and chair
  • Queensland – 1 practitioner member
  • Tasmania – 1 practitioner member and chair
  • Victoria – 4 practitioner members and chair

To be eligible for appointment as a practitioner member, you must hold current registration as a nurse and/or midwife. It is expected that applicants practise and reside in the state or territory in which they are applying for appointment.

The National Scheme has a commitment to increasing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ leadership and voices.  Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are strongly encouraged to apply, as are people from rural or regional areas in Australia.

Appointments are made by the Minister for Health in each jurisdiction under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, as in force in each state and territory. Appointments can be for up to three years, with eligibility for reappointment.

More information about the roles, eligibility requirements and the application process can be found in the Download Fileinformation guide and application form available from AHPRA’s page: http://www.ahpra.gov.au/National-Boards/Statutory-Appointments.aspx
