Trained in English

If you have completed an NMC-approved pre-registration nurse, midwife or nursing associate programme, we will accept this as evidence that you have the necessary knowledge of English.

If you did not complete an NMC-approved pre-registration programme we need to be satisfied that your programme demonstrates that you have the necessary knowledge of English.

In a majority English-speaking country

If you completed your programme in a majority English speaking country, you will need to demonstrate that your programme meets the requirements set out in our guidance by providing evidence which meets our criteria.

In a non-majority English speaking country

If you completed your programme in a non-majority English-speaking country, you will need to demonstrate that your programme meets the requirements set out in our guidance by providing evidence which meets our criteria.

We will consider your evidence, but please be aware that it is likely that you will need to provide an alternative type of evidence such as a language test.

Your evidence must confirm that the programme was composed of at least 50 percent clinical interaction. Your evidence must also clearly demonstrate at least 75 percent of that was with patients, service users, their families and other healthcare professionals and must have taken place in English.

If your evidence does not clearly demonstrate the above requirements you will need to provide an alternative type of evidence such as a language test.
