2: Interim Orders

Interim orders are urgent measures to temporarily suspend or restrict a nurse or midwife’s practice while we investigate their case. There are two types of interim orders and their main purpose is to protect the public. Interim conditions of practice orders impose conditions the nurse or midwife must comply with in order to work as a nurse or midwife. Interim suspension orders suspend the nurse or midwife’s registration which means they cannot practise as a nurse or midwife whilst the suspension is in place.
