Quality accreditation standards are the foundation of the accreditation system developed by ANMAC. ANMAC uses accreditation standards to assess and accredit nursing and midwifery programs of study. All of our standards are reviewed over time to ensure they are contemporary and aligned with Australian and international best practice. ANMAC accreditation standards are developed through extensive consultation with stakeholders. The accreditation standards are reviewed inline with ANMAC's:
ANMAC submits all revised accreditation standards to the Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR) for assessment before they are sent to the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) for review. The OBPR assesses and reports on standards compliance.
While ANMAC is responsible for developing the standards. The NMBA is responsible for approving the standards under the National Law.
Currently under review
ANMAC will be reviewing the Registered Nurse Accreditation Standards (2012) this year. The review and development process is scheduled to commence in July 2017. Progress updates will be provided on the website.
