Agency Nursing Registration Process

Austra Health’s registration process for agency nurses is detailed below. Our consultants can be contacted directly throughout the registration process if you have questions.

Step 1 – Register Online

You will need to submit a resume, the name and contact details of at least two professional referees, and a Working with Children Check number and issue date (if you have one). If your application meets our criteria, you will be required to complete an online workplace safety induction.

Step 2 – Meet Us

If you progress to the next stage, an Austra Health consultant will contact you to organize a time to meet. If you are overseas, this can be arranged via telephone. At the meeting, you will need to provide the following documentation:

  • Proof of ID
  • Your Registration Certificate (AHPRA)
  • Your original qualification
  • Proof of any additional nursing qualifications
  • Proof of ‘years of service
  • Your banking details
  • Your Tax File Number (TFN)
  • Your superannuation fund details
  • Proof of mandatory training (Basic Life Support (BLS), Emergency Management Procedures or Manual Handling) if completed in last 12 months (refer to Step 3)

You will also be required to complete a drug calculation test.

Step 3 – Training & Induction

If you have not completed your Basic Life Support (BLS), Emergency Management Procedures, or Manual Handling training in the last 12 months, you will be required to complete the updated training before you are eligible to work. We can assist in scheduling training updates on your behalf if you would like us to.
