Summary of Changes from Previous Version

In addition to meeting the Deakin English language requirement, it is an Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC) accreditation requirement that applicants meet the English Language requirements of the ANMAC Accreditation Standards leading to initial registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) at commencement of their course. These requirements include a self- declaration that English is their primary language, evidence of achievement of the minimum English language test result as specified in the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia's (NMBA) English language skills registration standard or current registration with APRHA as an Enrolled Nurse or Registered Nurse. Amendments were made to ensure that the nursing courses comply with: 1. Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC) accreditation requirement regarding English Language (see Schedule A) and 2. Deakin’s minimum English language proficiency criteria (Band D).
