Past Offences and Findings | Health and Conduct

You must:

  • truthfully answer questions about any past or current offences, any investigations, inquiries or proceedings, misconduct, incompetence or fitness to practice, any findings made against you relating to the practice of nursing or any other profession, or past registration refusals.

  • also tell the College if you suffer from any physical or mental condition or disorder that could affect your ability to practise nursing in a safe manner.

We will also need you to affirm:

  • you will practise nursing with decency, honesty and integrity, and in accordance with the law
  • you have sufficient knowledge, skill and judgment to competently engage in the type of nursing authorized by your certificate of registration
  • you will display an appropriately professional attitude

You do all this by answering the questions on the Declaration of Registration Requirements, included with your application. In addition to your original declaration, you must tell us if your answers to any of the questions change during the application process.

See our information about past offences and findings and health and conduct issues for more about what happens when you answer “yes” to a question on the declaration, or the College receives information about your conduct or health from another source.
