NMC Online and our other online services will be unavailable from 18:00 on Friday 29 May to 15:00 on Sunday 31 May for essential maintenance.

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


Once you've submitted your application and paid your registration fee, we’ll contact your nominated referees to verify your qualification.

We can only evaluate your information once we've received all your supporting information and verification from your referees.

When we might need more information

We may need to ask you for more information if any of the details you provide are unclear or appear incomplete, or if you or your referee(s) provide conflicting information.

We may also ask you for further information if you:

  • indicate you have a health condition and/or disability that you’re not managing.
  • declare you have received a police charge, caution, conviction or conditional discharge or determinations that your fitness to practise is impaired 

You’ll have an opportunity to provide more information with your application, and we recommend you provide as much information as possible to begin with to help us assess your application more quickly.

If we need to ask for more information at any point, we'll contact you by email.
