NMC Online, HEI Online and our employer and CCPS portals will be unavailable from 18:00 on 27 November to 18:00 on 28 November for essential maintenance. We're sorry for any inconvenience.

Please visit nmc.org.uk/COVID19 for information about temporary registration and changes to how we’re operating during this time.


We know that moving to live and work in a new country is a life changing event.

Your registration with us is a big part of this decision, and we want to make sure you're as prepared as possible. 

This tool can help you work out:

  • what evidence you'll need to provide if you decide to register with us as a nurse or midwife
  • who you may need to contact before you begin
  • what guidance you need to read 

Using your checklist

The tool will ask you a few questions about your experience. Then you'll get a checklist of the things to consider before you apply for registration.

You can download your checklist as a PDF. Your checklist won't be saved, so you'll need to use this tool again if you navigate away from the results page.

While we make every effort to ensure that this tool is accurate and up to date, it won't take all your circumstances into account — so please treat it as a guide only.
