UK registered nurse (trained outside UK) AHPRA Registration

Recommended Posts

My wife is a UK registered nurse; however trained in India and we have sent the application to AHPRA in the last month and received below letter from case office asking for additional documents. They have received now NMC verification and we managed to arrange for the evidence of adapataion competion (from NHS trust where completed adaptation) and also 'Pharmacology' unit (my school of nursing is sending me a letter confirming this).


Only an issue is with my nursing council in India. I dispatched documents to India and my relative went to nursing council in India with verification form. But they refused to accept the application saying my registration with them was lasped in 2007 (that's true becoz I haven't renewed it after 2007 as I am here in UK since 2004). So if I want to verify and I need to renew it first and for that I need to be present in there office to prove that I am still exist.


They have mentioned in the below email "A Certificate of Registration Status or Good Standing / Verification directly from Maharashtra Nursing Council INDIA" so they just want a letter from Indian nursing council confirming i have registered with them from 15 July 94 (first registeration date) to 30 March 2007 (registration renewed upto). But Indian Nursing council is not ready until my wife first do the renewal. We dont mind renewing it but don't know how much time it will take to first renew and then to send verifiaction.


Would appreciate advice on this verificaion issue.


Thanks and Regards,



Email received from case officer

Sorry to be so blunt, but the AHPRA letter is pretty clear as to the information that they require?


Good luck
