Update for education providers of Diploma of Nursing programs:
- RTOs who do not have the Diploma of Nursing qualification (currently HLT54115) on scope should submit an application to ANMAC for accreditation of the program prior to applying to ASQA. When accreditation is granted by ANMAC it will be conditional on the qualification being added to the RTO’s scope of delivery.
- ANMAC and the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) sent correspondence to all providers of the Diploma of Nursing regarding programs that have not been accredited by ANMAC and approved by the NMBA.
These accreditation standards detail the minimum requirements to be met by vocational education and training providers wanting accreditation of their program of study by ANMAC. Once an education provider has a program accredited by ANMAC and approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA), it is eligible to be listed on the NMBA approved program of study list.
Explanatory notes clarify and provide additional information about statements made within the accreditation standards.
