ANMAC is currently reviewing the Registered Nurse Accreditation Standards. The second phase of consultation for the new standards will begin shortly. To facilitate programs being accredited with the most recent standards, ANMAC will only accept submissions against the Registered Nurse Accreditation Standards 2012 until 31 July 2018.
Education Providers can either submit their application against the Registered Nurse Accreditation Standards 2012 by COB 31 July 2018, or submit their application against the new Registered Nurse Accreditation Standards when they are published. Education Providers who would prefer to use the new standards and require prolongation of their current program can email their request to ANMAC for consideration.
ANMAC anticipates the Registered Nurse Accreditation Standards will be published towards the end of 2018. The publication will follow the conclusion of the stakeholder consultation process, review by the Professional Reference Group and approval by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.

These accreditation standards detail the minimum requirements to be met by higher education providers wanting accreditation of their program of study by ANMAC. Once an education provider has a program accredited by ANMAC, it is eligible to be listed as a Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) approved program of study.
