NSW Health verification

SONIA is a University system. NSW Health verification is displayed in SONIAonline however NSW Health has no access to SONIA. There can be a seven-day lag between receiving NSW Health verification and SONIA displaying the new information.

If seven days have past and your verification information is not displaying correctly please call/email your placement contact.
