Principles for nursing and midwifery students during the next phase of the Covid-19 pandemic

25 June 2020

We're proposing recovery education standards to our Council that will provide a more stable learning environment for students in all years and ensure current final year students can qualify and become fully registered professionals as they planned.

If approved by our Council, the recovery standards will take effect from 30 September 2020, replacing the Covid-19 emergency education standards.

Statements on expanding the workforce

19 March 2020

We published two joint statements with nursing and midwifery leaders on expanding the workforce in the Covid-19 outbreak:

Together, these statements set out:

  • how we would facilitate nurses and midwives who left the register within the last three years to join the Covid-19 temporary register.
  • how we would maximise the contribution of student nurses and midwives who are in the last six months of their pre-registration education.

25 March 2020

We published a joint statement to provide an update in relation to midwifery and nursing students in all fields, who are not in the final six months of their programme.

This sets out the options for the contribution and continuing education of midwifery and nursing students in all fields during the emergency, who are not in the final six months of their programme.
