A Queensland nurse has been refused bail after he was charged with drugging and raping a woman in his Brisbane apartment, and stalking another.

The 30-year-old man, who cannot be identified, was arrested yesterday and appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court via video link this morning.

During a search of the residence, officers allegedly found mobile phones, video recording equipment, prescription drugs and illicit drugs.

Police alleged that a "concerning video depicting other young women" was discovered on one of the mobile phones and initial analysis suggests the videos were recorded at different times.

The registered nurse, who works south of Brisbane, allegedly met women via social media platforms such as Tinder and Snapchat.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Tara Williams told the court the man gave his victim the drug benzodiazepine "believed to be obtained through his position as a nurse".

The man faces 10 charges, including rape, sexual assault, stupefying in order to commit indictable offence, observations or recordings in breach of privacy and drug-related charges.

He has also been charged with unlawfully stalking a different woman.

The man, also a father of one, applied for bail citing no previous criminal history.

But Magistrate Anthony Gett denied the application, saying the allegations of "sexual predation" concerned "a level of deliberateness and planning".

"It would seem to me there [are] serious concerns about his methods and the nature of the offences he has [allegedly] perpetrated against others," Magistrate Gett said.

"The risk of re-offending is too significant."

The man was remanded in custody and is due to face court again via video link on August 24.

Advocacy groups say 'disappointing' changes to Queensland's rape laws fail to abolish defence 'loophole' .
Advocacy groups the Queensland Government's "disappointing" proposed changes to rape laws won't make women safer or encourage more survivors to go to court. The Government today introduced draft laws recommended by the Queensland Law Reform Commission (QLRC) after a review of the "mistake of fact" defence.Sexual assault support services consider the "mistake of fact" defence to be a legal "loophole" that allows accused rapists to walk free. The 110-year-old legal defence allows accused rapists to beat charges if juries accept they had a mistaken, but honest and reasonable belief that sex was consensual.
