To get started, you need to ensure you meet the NMC approved English requirements. Once confirmed, you need to register with the NMC.

There are four stages to registering with NMC, which we can help you with along the way, these are:

  • Application for nursing/midwifery
  • Part 1 test of competence (CBT)
  • Part 2 test of competence (OSCE)
