Update on the implementation of the new Test of Competence

Find out more about the new Test of Competence

Emma Broadbent, Director of Professional Regulation for the Nursing and Midwifery Council, said:

“In 2019 we started work to update our Test of Competence (ToC) to better reflect our innovative new standards for both nurses and midwives. This was due to go live this summer, but due to Covid-19 and the need for us to support the health and social care workforce, we have decided to postpone the implementation of the new ToC until April 2021.

“As we begin to move out of the emergency and toward our new normal, we’ll resume our work to implement the new ToC. I am confident this new timetable will make sure we’re able to fully engage with our partners so that all candidates, employers and recruiters are ready for these changes.”

Background

A detailed timetable on the implementation of the new Test of Competence will be available soon.
