What we do
We are the professional regulator for nurses and midwives in the UK, and nursing associates in England.
- We maintain the register of nurses and midwives who meet the requirements for registration in the UK, and nursing associates who meet the requirements for registration in England.
- We set the requirements of the professional education that supports people to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours required for entry to, or annotation on, our register.
- We shape the practice of the professionals on our register by developing and promoting standards including our Code, and we promote lifelong learning through revalidation.
- Where serious concerns are raised about a nurse, midwife or nursing associate’s fitness to practise, we can investigate and, if needed, take action.
Who we regulate
We regulate nurses and midwives in the United Kingdom and nursing associates in England. The Code sets out the standards of practice and behaviour we expect of all our registered healthcare professionals.
