All registered nurses will have completed a pre-registration nursing education programme. These programmes take place in approved higher education institutions. Only students who have successfully completed an approved nursing or midwifery programme, and who have met the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) requirements of good health and good character, can apply to join the register.
Registration is renewed every three years, and registrants must be able to demonstrate that they meet NMC required standards for continuing professional development and practice. In order to meet these standards, nurses must demonstrate that they have undertaken 35 hours of learning activity relevant to their practice and completed 450 hours of practice during the three years prior to the renewal of registration.
