Changes in light of coronavirus (Covid-19)

While we’re encouraging nurses and midwives to rejoin the permanent register where they can, we recognise that some people may want to support the emergency response to Covid-19 in the short term.

If you left our permanent register after 1 March 2015, you may be able to join our Covid-19 temporary register. However, please note that this will be closed to new applicants from 24 March, and will close entirely on 30 September.

Apply for readmission
