Registered nurse accreditation standards review

Quality accreditation standards are the foundation of the accreditation system developed by ANMAC. All of our standards are reviewed to ensure they are contemporary and aligned with Australian and international best practice. The standards are reviewed in line with the Protocol for the review and development of accreditation standards (741 KB)

Registered Nurse Accreditation Standards 2012 (440 KB) are under review. These standards are used to assess and accredit Registered Nurse programs of study.
