Guidance on Nursing And Midwifery Council Registration process for Overseas Nurses:
Nurses and midwives who have trained outside the U.K., EU and the European Economic Area (EEA) and want to work in the UK as a nurse or midwife must gain professional registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
Applicants are tested for competence through a two-part process to gain registration.
* Part one – computer-based multiple-choice examination which is accessible around the world for applicants to access in their home countries.
* Part two – practical objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) which will always be held in the UK.
All overseas applicants need to pass a computer-based test (CBT) and comply with all other initial requirements of the NMC overseas nursing process (including achieving language capability requirements) to be eligible to sit the OSCE and complete their registration. In October 2017, the NMC issued revised guidance on how an overseas applicant can meet the required level of English language capability.
* An individual entering the UK to take a nursing role has up to three months from the employment start date noted on the certificate of sponsorship (CoS) to sit the OSCE exam. During this period they can be legally employed as a pre-registration candidate.
* Employers must ensure that before a certificate of sponsorship is applied for:
* the individual has passed part one of the NMC test of competence
* the individual has been issued with an offer of employment, and
* the individual has achieved the required level of language capabiilty.
* a copy of the employment offer letter
* a copy of the email confirmation from the NMC to show the individual has passed the CBT, and
* evidence that a Resident Labour Market Test (RLMT) has been carried out.
* Applicants may sit the OSCE up to three times as part of one application (applies to applications started after 06 April 2017).
* If an applicant is unsuccessful at their first OSCE, they must wait a minimum of 10 working days before they can take the examination again.
* If an applicant is unsuccessful at their second OSCE, they must wait a minimum of three months from the date of their second attempt before they can take the OSCE for the third time.
* If the applicant is unsuccessful after their permitted attempts, the employer must stop sponsoring them and as a result their leave to remain period will be shortened.
* Upon successful completion of the OSCE and awarding of NMC registration, employers need to commit to ongoing employment of the individual as a registered nurse on a salary of at least £20,800.
* Employers must be able to provide evidence of the above arrangement if requested.
Employers or individuals with queries about individual NMC registrations are advised to contact the NMC directly.
