Nurse education, research and evidence-based practice

Chapter


Abstract


  • In Australia, nurse education is controlled through a registration

    body known as the regulatory authority. Prior to 2010 each state

    and territory had an independent statutory regulatory authority

    that was responsible for the registration of nurses and midwives

    and these were governed by different Acts of Parliament. On

    26 March 2008 the Council of Australian Governments (COAG)

    signed the Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) for a National

    Registration and Accreditation Scheme for the Health Professions.

    Australia's new national registration and accreditation

    scheme began on 1 July 2010.
