Professions

Back Handed by New Nursing Board

The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency ((AHPRA) will now be the national administration body for the 10 health professions, including nursing. They assumed regulatory powers from 1st July from State Nursing Boards, such as the Nursing Board of Victoria. As a fait accompli in the process of standardizing professional practice in Australia some divisions of nursing and qualifications will go by the board.
