WHAT IF I HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED AN APPLICATION TO ARNPEI?
If you have already submitted your paid application to ANRPEI, your application will be assessed under our current process. This will apply to all applications received until the new National Nursing Assessment Service application process is activated on August 12th 2014.
