Bridging your registration
WA Health is no longer running Registration Bridging Programs for overseas trained Registered and Enrolled Nurses.
Registration bridging programs are for overseas-educated nurses and midwives who want to work in Western Australia.
The Nurses and Midwives Board of Australia will advise overseas applicants if they are required to undertake a registration bridging program for overseas trained nurses, in order to gain initial registration in Australia.
Please contact the Nurses and Midwives Board of Australia for a full list of Registration Bridging Programs for Registered and Enrolled Nurses.

- Curtin University (external site) Course Code 301591
