Education facts and figures

Published on 02 April 2015

We play an important role in training and education, accrediting 1,000 courses at 77 education institutions.

We make sure that the courses meet our quality standards by regularly inspecting the education institutions We have also run listening events to raise awareness of our role and engage students before they join our register.

Lois Pattie, a student nurse at the University of the West of Scotland, attended our Edinburgh event in March. She said: “We felt like we were listened to by the staff at the event and learned more about the role of the NMC and what their goals will be for the future”.
