Registering as a nurse or midwife in the UK

Information for applicants trained outside the European Union or European Economic Area

Anyone wanting to work in the UK as a nurse must register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

Nurses trained outside the UK and EEA

They can apply to be on the NMC Register, providing they meet its standards. The NMC will compare the training in your country with that required in the UK. Registration with the NMC does not provide the right to work in the UK.
