"In Australia, nurse education is controlled through a registration body known as the regulatory authority. Prior to 2010 each state and territory had an independent statutory regulatory authority that was responsible for the registration of nurses and midwives and these were governed by different Acts of Parliament. On 26 March 2008 the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) signed the Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) for a National Registration and Accreditation Scheme for the Health Professions. Australia's new national registration and accreditation scheme began on 1 July 2010. From this date, a new national law came into effect and 10 health professions are now regulated by the same piece of legislation . The Health Practitioner Re gulation National Law Act 2009 was enacted on 1 July 2010 and governs Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) activities."-- p. 25.
