The Nursing and Midwifery Board Australia has published important information relating to the Registration standard for eligible midwives available under Registration standards on the National Board website.

From 1 July 2013, new applications for notation as an eligible midwife will go on hold. This is pending a decision from the Ministerial Council on the National Board proposal that the expiry date of a provision in the registration standard be extended.

Please read the explanatory note on the National Board website. The NMBA also released a related news item under Latest news.
