NMC Registration – guidance and forms

Registering with the NMC is effectively your passport to working as a nurse in the UK. So in this section, we’ll give you:

  • A third-party NMC application form, which allows us to act on your behalf (this is very important)
  • Advice on how each stage of the application process works
  • Advice on completing each stage of the application process correctly
  • Instructions on completing your NMC application form
  • Guidance on sending the correct documents with your application
  • How to certify documents and translations

The whole process can seem complicated, but if you follow our step-by-step advice you’ll complete it without any hassle.

And to get started, you need to request an application form for NMC registration at www.nmc.org.uk/eu-request. Once you have applied, in 5-10 days you will receive your NMC pack for registration by post; this will include your Personal Reference Number (PRN) which you’ll need in all future correspondence with the NMC.

We would need you to fill out the third-party application form which we will send you, in order to support you through the NMC process. It won’t take long, but please fill it out carefully.
