The information requested in relation to the number of applications for registration to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) is not held centrally.

The NMC is the independent regulator of nurses and midwives in the United Kingdom and is responsible for nurse and midwife registration. It has informed the Department that it does not collect data on how many applications for registration are rejected or withdrawn before they were assessed.
