The Bard is cmmitted t best practice regulatin that prtects the public by ensuring nurses and midwives can cmmunicate effectively in English t prvide safe care t clients. Frm Mnday 19 September 2011, the Nursing and Midwifery Bard f Australia will implement a revised registratin standard n English language skills. This revised standard will replace the registratin standard n English language skills and related arrangements in place since 1 July This fact sheet aims t explain the key requirements f the revised standard and detail hw it will be implemented. Anyne applying fr registratin shuld refer t the revised registratin standard n English language skills which takes effect frm 19 September Abut the registratin standard Under the Health Practitiner Regulatin Natinal Law Act (the Natinal Law) as in frce in each state and territry, the Natinal Bard sets registratin standards which all applicants must meet befre they can be registered t practise in Australia. The Bard has set a registratin standard n English language skills t ensure all enrlled nurses, registered nurses and midwives in Australia can cmmunicate effectively in English by listening, reading, speaking and in writing with their clients and with ther health prfessinals abut the care f their clients. The revised registratin standard n English language skills details the English language skills that everyne applying fr initial registratin in Australia must demnstrate t be eligible fr registratin as a nurse r midwife. Cnsistent with the Natinal Law, the Bard develped the registratin standard which was apprved by the Australian Health Wrkfrce Ministerial Cuncil n 5 August The revised standard will take effect n 19 September Reasns fr the review In September 2010, in respnse t stakehlder feedback, the Bard decided t review the riginal registratin standard n English language skills t make its effect clearer and its implementatin mre straightfrward. 1

2 The new standard was develped thrugh extensive cnsultatin with the prfessins and the cmmunity, which helped ensure it is fair, reasnable and guided by public safety. The revised standard was als infrmed by the Bard s review f the available evidence and stakehlder feedback. In develping the revised standard, the Bard applied the fllwing principles: prtectin f the public natinal cnsistency and alignment, where pssible, with the registratin standard n English language skills f the ther Natinal Bards recgnitin f the difference in the educatin preparatin fr nursing and midwifery and the tw categries f nurse (enrlled and registered) establishment f a rigrus registratin standard that can be understd easily and the ability t implement the registratin standard effectively. Key changes The revised Nursing and Midwifery Bard registratin standard n English language skills: still requires registered nurses, midwives and enrlled nurses t cmmunicate effectively in English brings the Bard s registratin standard n English language skills in line with the standards f the ther Natinal Bards, while retaining key prfessin-specific features means that applicants wh have cmpleted a minimum f five (5) years (full-time equivalent) f cmbined secndary and/r vcatinal and/r tertiary educatin taught and assessed in English, in: Australia Canada New Zealand the Republic f Ireland Suth Africa the United Kingdm r the United States f America are cnsidered t have met the standard and therefre d nt need t sit an English language test - all ther applicants are required t submit evidence f English prficiency recgnises the different educatin requirements fr nursing and midwifery and the tw categries f nursing (enrlled and registered): fr registered nurses and registered midwives, tw (2) f the required full-time equivalent five years f educatin must be a pre-registratin prgram f study taught and assessed in English in ne f the cuntries previusly listed 2

3 fr enrlled nurses, ne (1) f the required full-time equivalent five years f educatin must be a pre-registratin prgram f study taught and assessed in English in ne f the cuntries previusly listed gives the Bard flexibility in the future t cnsider and/r grant an exemptin t a defined grup thrugh develping natinally-cnsistent plicy, if cmpelling evidence arises demnstrating English language prficiency equivalent t the standard fr the defined chrt/s; and is supprted by detailed transitin prvisins fr currently-enrlled students wh are sn t cmplete their curses. Fr example, current students due t cmplete their curse by the end f 2011 r wh cmplete their utstanding curse requirements by 30 March 2012 must either meet the Bard s current (t 18 September 2011) requirements in relatin t English language skills, r they can pt t meet the Bard s new registratin standard which cmes int frce frm 19 September Cre requirements The new registratin standard requires all applicants wh seek registratin in Australia t demnstrate that they meet the registratin standard n English language skills. The evidence can be prvided t the Bard by: prviding dcumentatin that shws the applicant has cmpleted five years full-time equivalent f a cmbinatin f secndary and/r vcatinal and/r tertiary educatin, taught and assessed in English, in any f the seven recgnised cuntries (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the Republic f Ireland, Suth Africa, the United Kingdm and the United States f America) listed in the registratin standard fr thse applicants seeking registratin as an enrlled nurse, the cmpletin f five years full-time equivalent educatin must include evidence f a minimum f ne year full-time equivalent in a preregistratin prgram f study apprved by the recgnised nursing and/r midwifery regulatry bdy in ne f seven recgnised cuntries listed in the registratin standard fr thse applicants seeking registratin as a registered nurse, the cmpletin f five years fulltime equivalent educatin must include evidence f a minimum f tw years full-time equivalent in a pre-registratin nursing prgram f study apprved by the recgnised nursing and/r midwifery regulatry bdy in ne f the seven recgnised cuntries listed in the registratin standard; and fr thse applicants seeking registratin as a midwife, the cmpletin f five years full-time equivalent f educatin must include evidence f a minimum f tw years full-time equivalent in a pre-registratin midwifery prgram f study apprved by the recgnised nursing and/r midwifery regulatry bdy in ne f the seven recgnised cuntries listed in the registratin standard.
