Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council

The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC) plays a key role in protecting the health and safety of the Australian community by ensuring high standards of nursing and midwifery education.

We are Australia's single independent accrediting authority for nursing and midwifery under the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme). Quality education assures the community that nurses and midwives who complete programs we accredit can practice, become registered and care for people in a safe and competent manner.

ANMAC was established as the accrediting authority by the Australian Government's Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) under what is known as the National Law

ANMAC is also an assessing authority for the Australian Government's Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP). We assess the qualifications of nurses and midwives who want to migrate here under the General Skilled Migration category. We determine if their qualifications make them suitable for permanent migration or whether they need to undertake more education to become eligible.
