 As per the  Health Workforce 2025 report, a significant shortage of nurses in Australia has been predicted with  a shortfall of 109,000 nurses by 2025. One of the key findings was that Australia’s healthcare sector would “…continue to remain highly dependent on migration of international health professionals”.

Training and educating more nurses in Australia What can be done to address the shortage of nurses in Australia? The obvious solution is of course to train and educate more new nurses, so there are opportunities for both local and overseas students to enrol in programs leading to AHPRA registration, such as Diploma of Nursing courses and bachelors’ degrees. However, huge influxes of new nurses without there being sufficient experienced nurses to take on important mentoring roles could reduce quality of care. So what is being done to help keep maintain a significant proportion of experienced, expert nurses in the workforce? Overcoming the experience gap Currently, programs such as the Initial Registration of Overseas Nurses (IRON) program, also known as overseas nurse bridging programs or Entry to Practice for Overseas Qualified Registered Nurses (EPIQ-RN) programs, offer overseas qualified nurse the opportunity to have their qualifications recognised in Australia and obtain registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). There are also programs that help people who have previously bee n registered nurses return to practice, known as Registered Nurse Re-Entry to Practice (RNRP) programs. These programs refresh the nurses’ knowledge of theory and assess their nursing skills in a clinical setting to ensure their success and the safety of their patients. There are also refresher programs to help nurses who are between jobs maintain their clinical and theoretical currency and stay registered. Why does all this matter? It matters because nurses are the backbone of the healthcare system. They are the ones who provide the constant care of patients, monitor and pick up on changes in their condition, save lives and provide comfort and care. Their work is highly skilled, both at a degree qualified Registered Nurse level and at a Diploma qualified Enrolled Nurse level.

The Regulatory Process :

The disciplinary process that is followed by the NMC is as follows:-

Investigation – the case will initially be assessed by a screening team. Should the screening team determine that the case warrants investigation, then the case will be passed to case examiners. The case examiners will assess all the evidence, including evidence from the nurse or midwife who has been referred, and they may also seek expert advice. At the end of the investigation, the case examiners (or the investigation committee where case examiners disagree over what to do) will determine whether there is a case to answer. Should they decide that there is, then they will refer the matter on to either the Conduct and Competence Committee or the Health Committee

Hearing – the panel assessing the fitness to practice of the nurse or midwife will consist of medical and lay members. A solicitor is normally appointed to present the NMC’s case. The panel will review the documentation before them, hear from witnesses and experts, and the nurse or midwife who is the subject of the hearing will be given a full opportunity to make representations and present evidence in their defence.

Decision and sanctions – should the panel determine that the fitness to practice of the nurse or midwife is impaired on the balance of probabilities, then they can either issue a caution order (which last 1 – 5 years), or place conditions of practice on the nurse or midwife, or suspend the nurse or midwife for a period of time, or the strike-off the nurse or midwife.

Appeal – the nurse can appeal against any sanction imposed within 28 days to the High Court.

Canada

Canada has opened its doors to welcome internationally educated nurses. As the demand for nurses continues to grow, nurses are presented with the opportunity to seek either permanent or temporary residency in Canada. .  The different ways a nurse can come to Canada to work and live. A registered nurse or licensed practical nurse seeking permanent residency in Canada is invited to discover the benefits of the Quebec Skilled Worker (QSW) immigration program. Nurses with international credentials may also seek temporary residency in Canada if they obtain a valid job offer and subsequent work permit. Once working in Canada on a temporary basis, permanent residency options may later present themselves through alternate immigration programs.

Permanent Residency: The Quebec Option:

The Province of Quebec has implemented an immigration policy that reflects its high demand for nurses. With high salaries, available jobs and a rapidly expanding healthcare system, Quebec seeks to bring the best international nursing professionals to its cities and towns. The QSW program, the province’s most popular program for permanent residency, has been set up in a way that benefits qualified nurses.

The QSW program offers internationally educated nurses an opportunity to seek permanent residency in Canada without the need to secure a job offer. The QSW program is a points-based selection system and points are awarded for various factors which include age, education, area of training, work experience, language ability etc. If an applicant scores enough points to reach the pass-mark, he or she will generally qualify for a Quebec Selection Certificate, which ultimately leads to a Canadian permanent resident visa, in the absence of health and/or security issues.

The QSW selection criteria award a significant number of points for French language ability. However, under this program many nurses are able to score enough points to reach the pass mark without obtaining any points for French language ability. This is because nurses are able to earn very high points for the “area of training” selection factor as well as high points for their education.

Temporary Residency: The Work Permit Option:

As the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) is predicting a continued shortage of nurses in the future, nursing jobs in the country are more plentiful than ever. Internationally educated nurses may apply to work temporarily in Canada. Temporary residency for foreign trained nurses may be achieved if the applicant secures a valid job offer and subsequently, a work permit.

To begin this process, an applicant with a nursing degree from outside Canada must have their educational credentials assessed. Since educational credentials can be assessed from both inside and outside Canada, applicants are given the option to remain in their country of residence during the assessment process.

After educational credentials have been assessed, applicants must register as a nurse in Canada. When this has been completed, an applicant may initiate the process of obtaining a job offer and work permit in Canada. To facilitate the process of finding a job offer, some individual provinces have implemented services helping connect internationally educated nurses to employment opportunities in healthcare communities.

How to register as a nurse in Canada:

Any nurse planning to work in Canada must be deemed as qualified to practice as a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed/Registered Practical Nurse (LPN/RPN). To qualify, an applicant must register with either the Canadian Nurses Association (CAN) or the Canadian Council for Practical Nurse Regulators (CCPNR). In Canada registration requirements are established by individual provinces and territories. To register with the CNA or CCPNR, nurses must first apply to the nursing regulatory body of the province or territory where they wish to work:

 In general, in order to be eligible to register as an RN or LPN, an applicant will need to demonstrate competency to practice. To demonstrate this, an applicant will need to have their education credentials assessed. Once education credentials are deemed equivalent to nursing education programs in Canada, the nursing regulatory body will then address whether other application requirements are met. Additional application requirements generally include criteria such as work experience, good character, language proficiency, screening for criminal history and registration in the jurisdiction where the applicant currently practices.

Once a positive assessment of the application requirements has been met, Canadian provinces and territories, with the exception of Quebec, require that nurses write the Canadian Registered Nurse Examination (CRNE) or Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Exam (CPNRE) as part of the registration or licensure process (the province of Quebec maintains its own registration examination). Once an applicant has successfully completed the required examination, the applicant may be eligible to work as a nurse in Canada.
