The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) is the independent regulator of nurses and midwives in the United Kingdom, and nursing associates in England. It sets the standards that registrants must meet to demonstrate that they are capable of practising safely and effectively. This includes assessing that an applicant can speak, read, listen and write English to the required standards.
There are currently no plans to relax the requirements for English language competence set by the NMC for overseas candidates applying to join the register.
