AHPRA – New Model Assessment for Australia
The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) has announced a new assessment model for the registration of internationally qualified nurses and midwives. An Outcomes-Based Assessment (OBA) pathway has been introduced to replace the current bridging program for nurses who do not possess substantially equivalent qualifications.
The OBA includes both cognitive and behavioral components. It is mandatory to pass the cognitive assessment before the behavioral component is attempted. Cognitive assessment will be a computer-based multiple-choice questionnaire (MCQ). In order to attempt MCQ, the candidate has to undergo the NCLEX-RN test. The behavioral assessment will be in the form of an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE).
Subsequently, the candidate has to undergo an orientation program prior to registration with AHPRA. The orientation program is concerned with the Australian healthcare context.
