Part of applying for your Australian nursing registration is outlining your full practice work history. The detail of this needs to be included in a signed and dated CV that has been formatted to AHPRA’s mandatory requirements.

You must declare on your CV that the ‘The Curriculum Vitae is true and correct as at (insert date)’. This declaration must be signed and dated. The Boards will only accept the original signed Curriculum Vitae. You must also attach certified copies of any results or performance reports from bridging courses undertaken, skills assessment, observership (as applicable) that have been stated in the CV.

You must also include a statement of service from all of your employers from the past five years. This needs to be attached to your application.
The Statement of Service is required to:

  • be on the employer’s letterhead
  • provide dates of employment
  • describe the role in which you were employed, and whether it was full-time/part-time hours, and
  • be signed by a manager (e.g. director of nursing, unit manager or HR manager)

The detail of this is to be included in a signed and dated CV that has been formatted to AHPRA’s mandatory requirements. Further information on how to write your full practice history can be found on AHPRA’s website.
