Return to nursing and midwifery

Returning to nursing or midwifery may be a daunting prospect for some. However, WA Health has streamlined the process by centrally coordinating and managing refresher pathway options for nurses and midwives.

You can get back into the nursing and midwifery workforce if you are still registered, but have not worked for a while, by undertaking a refresher pathway placement.

WA Health’s Refresher Pathways are now linked to employment and applicants will have the flexibility to choose full-time or part-time options.

If you are no longer registered, you will need to complete a re-entry to practice program.
