Nurses practising at this level are educationally prepared at postgraduate level and may work in a specialist or generalist capacity.

    My bad I don't have the ahpra's standards memorized by once you satisfy the experience guideline, the schooling you can do as I said, see the two different pathways... It's a faster route to have the universities transfer the credit and then you'll have an aussy degree as well. I'm not saying I know it all i was giving helpful hints to like minded people... American health system is ass backwards much like most things here its profit driven and there's no money in healthy people. So sorry if we're all too eager to practice somewhere else.
