The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC) skill assessment plays a crucial role in the migration and professional registration of nurses aspiring to work in Australia. This assessment evaluates the qualifications, skills, and experience of qualified nurses to ensure alignment with Australian standards and requirements.
ANMAC is the approved authority to assesses whether an individual’s nursing qualifications and experience meet the benchmarks set by Australian healthcare standards. This evaluation is vital for both visa application purposes and professional registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
There are 3 categories for a ANMAC skills assessment in Australia. These categories are sorted based on in which countries you have obtained the qualification and registration as a registered nurse.
Category 1: Modified Skills Assessment
This category is designed for those who are currently registered as a registered nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA/AHPRA), the Nursing Council of New Zealand (NCNZ) or the Midwifery Council of New Zealand (MCNZ).
Category 2: Modified plus Skills Assessment
This category is designed for those who are holding a current letter of “Notice of in-principle approval of registration subject to proof of identity” from AHPRA. Plus, you must hold current registration as a nurse (registered nurse or enrolled nurse) overseas to be able to apply for the Modified PLUS skills assessment.
Category 3: Full Skills Assessment
This category is designed for those who hold a minimum Bachelor of Nursing qualification from Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, the UK or the United States and hold registration as a registered nurse in that same country you qualify for a Full skills assessment.
