Temporary NMC register reopens to internationally trained nurses
The NMC has opened its Covid-19 temporary register to people in the UK who have trained internationally as nurses. This action has been taken to lighten the increasing pressures on health and social care services in the UK. Employers can now nominate international nurses who are already on a pathway to their “OSCE” exam and full NMC registration. Nurses cannot apply directly to the NMC and nominate themselves.
For over 100 years we have been supporting and representing nursing members just like you.
Whether your expertise is within the NHS, the community, care homes or other parts of the independent sector, research and education and training, we are here to support your nursing journey.
As an RCN member you’ll be entitled to a wide range of benefits, such as information on working across the UK, career support and networking opportunities.
