Step 1 - AHPRA Registration
  • AHPRA is the authority that processes your nursing registration in Australia.  
  • You cannot work over there as a nurse without registration.  
  • The UK and Ireland are listed as countries that ‘will likely’ pass the AHPRA registration process.
  • It normally takes approx. 8 – 12 weeks for AHPRA registration (if all documentation is completed correctly).
  • Once you have been approved you get an AHPRA ‘ in principle’ Letter.  

Generally, you have 3 months from the date of this letter to travel to Australia to present your ID and validate your AHPRA registration.
Here is a quick guide for AHPRA Registration: Watch Video.

Step 2 - Find a Job before you Travel​
  • Using ICE Jobs/ICE Group to find a job is free, and we will support through the recruitment process.
  • The recruitment process can take up to 6 - 12 months from date of interview (depending on your visa situation) to make the move to Australia.
