ANMAC’s Skilled Migration Services assesses the skills of nurses and midwives who want to migrate to Australia under the General Skilled Migration program. We determine if an applicant has the nursing or midwifery qualifications and experience needed for permanent migration to Australia.
Who we assess
We assess the skills of:
- internationally qualified nurses
- internationally qualified midwives
- international students studying nursing and midwifery in Australia or New Zealand who have completed their course and are registered in Australia or New Zealand.
What we do
ANMAC is only responsible for assessing the skills of nurses and midwives for migration purposes.
To work as a nurse or midwife in Australia, you must be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA). This registration process is separate to what we do.
What we do not do
By law, ANMAC cannot and does not:
- register nurses or midwives (this is a function of the NMBA)
- find employment for nurses and midwives
- provide advice on how to get or keep your name on the online public Register of practitioners (this is the responsibility of Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency)
- provide information or advice on visa or immigration matters (this is the responsibility of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection)
- help you find a migration agent should you choose to use one (or contact the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority)
- provide advice on what you need to do to become suitable for migration
- provide information or advice on employment or industrial relations matters
- deliver nursing and midwifery education or training.
