    Looking at the requirements I would say you have to resit IELTS

    This requires:
    • a minimum score of 7 in each component of the IELTS academic module, OET or specified alternatives, with the exception of Pharmacy, which requires a minimum score of 7.5
    • test results to be obtained within two years prior to registration application.

    You should check the required band score of the institution you are planning to attend to. You should also think of the module being required. Most educational institutions require at least 7 in all sections. For the general module, it's usually lesser than the academic module.

    In Australia, overseas nurses from not one of the countries that AHPRA thinks is the bees knees, you are required to have 7 IELTS in all subtest in one sitting.
