Get started with ANA


If you wish to register to work with Australian Nursing Agency then please do so here. You are required to submit along with your registration a copy of your CV, a current Police Check or Working with Children Check and the names of two professional referees.

Once your registration and documentation has been received one of our friendly recruitment staff will determine whether you meet our criteria and if so contact you to discuss nurse registration and your anticipated arrival date in Australia. An interview time will also be arranged. This can either be conducted once you are in Australia or by telephone or online.


At the interview you will be required to provide the following:

  • Your nursing registration certificate with AHPRA (if you already have it)
  • Proof of your identity
  • Your original qualification
  • Proof of any post graduate qualifications
  • Evidence of years of service post graduate
  • Information on your superannuation fund
  • Your tax file number (if you have one)
  • Your bank details
  • Your immunisation record
  • Evidence of having completed your mandatory training for example BLS and manual handling

Once you have provided the required documentation, you will be asked to take a test or a competency assessment. You will either be asked to take a drug calculation test or an assesment related to your field of specialty. If you’re applying for a post as a Mental Health nurse, you will be required to take the necessary evaluation corresponding to your specialization.


Once you have completed the above process and you have been approved and accepted by our staff you will be ready to start working with us. You will be provided with everything you need and thoroughly inducted into your role in terms of policies, procedures and expectations. You will also be provided with a ‘log on’ to our website which will enable you to adjust your work availability and view information such as pay details.
