Guide for use:Help on this term

The terms 'occupation' and 'profession' have different meanings. While the Australian Standard (AS4846:2014) refers to the profession in which the healthcare individual provider is registered, ANZSCO occupational codes are used to define this data element.

The highest level of these codes indicates the division and should be used, rather than subspecialties. For example Registered nurse (2844) should be used and not:

  • Nurse practitioner (284411) or
  • Registered nurse (Aged care) (284412) or
  • Registered nurse (Child and family health) (284413) or
  • Registered nurse (Community health) (284414).
