1LEGAL AND PROFESSIONAL ISSUES IN NURSINGAnswer to question 1a)The partners of AHPRA are “Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia” (NMBA) andAustralian Nursing & Midwifery Accreditation Council” (ANMAC). The nursing practiceregistration is governed by Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act (HPRNLA)commenced on 1 July 2010 is the legislation that establishes a national registration andaccreditation scheme. This scheme is for health practioners in more 12 professions and is inforce since 1 July 2015 (Data, 2014). The role of NMBA is to carry out the functions set by theHPRNLA as it is in force in each territory and state. It regulates the nursing practice and it meansthat the nursing and midwifes only if registered under NMBA can work in Australia. It providesframework for regulatory, ethical and legal considerations. Currently, ANMAC establishes highquality standards for nurses, midwifes, and emphasise on their assessment, training education. Itputs great effort to protect the health and safety of the Australian community. ANMAC is alsoresponsible for assessing the skills of the nurses and midwifes for the purpose of migration(Bryce et al., 2017). b) The two requirements that are to be fulfilled for Suzy to fulfil her renewal are (Ralph etal., 2015)- Suzy must meet all the registration standards that are mandated by the NMBA.
