The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC) conducts Skill Assessments on Internationally qualified Nurses and Midwives moving to Australia.
ANMAC is tasked by the Australian Government to check that you are who you say you are, that you have the rights skills, qualifications and experience at an equivalent level to nurses and midwives who have studied and trained in Australia.
ANMAC vs AHPRA
- ANMAC is the skills assessment authority and a nursing applicant must always have an ANMAC skills assessement
- AHPRA is the overall nursing registration body for Australia
- ANMAC do not register nurses, they check the qualifications of nurses moving to Australia
- All nurses and healthcare professionals require AHPRA registration
