The most attractive and best migration pathway for nurses is to target GSM (General Skill Migration), the points test system and independent PR pathway. Therefore, you’d rather follow the steps than getting an employer sponsor.

So if you have completed or about to complete your Bachelor or Diploma in nursing, you need to know what is next.

Differences between RN or EN:

  • RN: Registered Nurse, someone who has completed a bachelor’s in nursing. A Registered Nurse can be eligible for all kind of visas.
  • EN: Enrolled Nurse, someone who has completed a Diploma of Nursing. An EN is not eligible for SC 189 (Independent PR).

Steps to follow after completing your studies:

  1. Get your English test with a minimum of 7-7-7-7 (IELTS), 65-65-65-65 (PTE) or B-B-B-B (OET).
  2. Apply for registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
  3. If your Bachelor is from overseas, you are required to do the bridging program approved by AHPRA in Australia and apply for the full registration.
  4. Apply for Skills assessment, with ANMAC (Australian Nursing & Midwifery Accreditation Council).
  5. Now you can claim yourself as an RN (Registered Nurse) or EN (Enrolled Nurse). So, Apply for EOI (Expression of Interest).
  6. Get invited to apply for PR (Permanent Residency) and apply for your visa.
