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


Register as a nursing associate if you trained outside of the EU/EEA

Start your application

When you're ready to begin, you can start your application in NMC Online.

Route assessment

At the start of your application, we’ll ask you some questions about your nationality, training and the country you trained in to make sure you’re applying via the correct route.

If you’re applying via the correct route, we’ll then ask you to create an NMC Online account. 

Create your NMC Online account

You'll use your online account to submit the rest of your application. You can also track the progress of your application in your account.

Once you've created your account, you’ll need to provide your passport details and a scanned copy of your passport, so we can confirm your identity.

If your name on your NMC Online account is different to the name on your passport, you’ll need you to provide evidence of your name change, such as a marriage or divorce certificate.

Then we'll ask you some questions about your qualification to check you're eligible to apply.

Take care when entering your information. Errors, particularly those in your training institute’s contact details, cannot be changed once you submit your application and will lead to delays.
