Are you in your final year of study to become a health practitioner?
Smooth the transition from study to work by applying for registration with your National Board now.
If you’re in an approved program of study, you can start your online graduate application with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) four to six weeks before you finish your course.
1. Set up your account with AHPRA. To do this, you’ll need a unique and personal email address only you can access.
Once set up, you can save your application and resume as required.
2. Complete the application form for registration with your profession’s National Board.
3. Upload your supporting documents.
4. Pay any required fees
We will assess your application and may contact you if we require further information. Once your education provider has advised us that you are eligible to graduate, we’ll finalise your application and will contact you to confirm that registration has been granted.
Once registered, your name will be published on the national register of practitioners, and you can start work!
We recommend that you read the information under Graduate applications, including FAQ and the PowerPoint: Health practitioner registration - What you need to know.
More information, including profession-specific news items and FAQ, is also available on National Board websites:
