I’m from Australia, what do I need to do?

Nurses registered in Australia follow a different New Zealand registration process to those registered in other countries. If you hold a current registration with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulatory Authority (AHPRA), you can apply for New Zealand registration under the Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition Act 1997 (TTMR).
