Registration Types

The majority of naturopaths and herbalists registering with ARONAH will apply for either general registration or non-practising registration.

This includes, but is not limited to, the provision of direct clinical care.  Practitioners may apply for registration within one or more of the following divisions of the Australian Register of Naturopaths and Herbalists (ARONAH):

  • Naturopath
  • Western herbal medicine practitioner

 

For more information about the requirements for general registration and assessment of applications please see the Grand-parenting Requirements for Eligibility for General Registration.

Non-practising registration

Non-practising registration is available to members who use their skills and knowledge as a health practitioner except for the provision of direct clinical care. It includes working in: a direct non-clinical relationship with clients; management; administration; education; research; advisory, regulatory or policy development roles; and any other roles that impact on safe, effective delivery of services in the profession.

Practitioners may apply for registration within one or more of the following divisions of the Australian Register of Naturopaths and Herbalists (ARONAH):
