    I would prefer "qualified nurse" and I would wonder what she had been approved for by the Ministry of Health.

    So accredited sounds strange?

    She's probably been approved to work in a Health Department institutition. A qualified nurse with a history of pedophilia or murdering patients might not get state approval to work in state institutions.
