The number of nurses - estimated by the Nursing and Midwifery Labour Force Survey - was 305,834 in 2007 (AIHW National health labour force series no. 43). While the number of nurses practising is increasing, nursing shortage remains an issue to be managed.
To address the shortage of nurses and other health professionals, the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) has established Health Workforce Australia (HWA).
Nurses are in special demand in Australia's regional and remote areas. Aged care, home care and psychiatric care are growing areas in need of more registered and enrolled nurses. If you are interested in exploring Australia outside the capitals, contact Rural Health Workforce Australia.
Assessment of international nursing qualifications
If you are a nurse with overseas qualifications wanting to work in Australia/migrating on a Skills Stream, contact the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council (ANMC). The Council is the independent accrediting authority for nursing and midwifery under the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme.
