UK NMC to cut test fees to encourage Nursing and Midwifery workforce

21 March 2019
The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has announced that the cost of tests that overseas nurses, midwives, and nursing associates must take to work in the UK will reduce by more than 20%.
From 1st April 2019, the cost of the computer-based test (CBT) will be curtailed from  £130 to £90;
the full cost of the OSCE from £992 to £794 and the resit cost of the practical examination from £496 to £397.

According to NMC, These changes are part of an ongoing review to improve the experience of those wanting to join the NMC’s register. They will help to ensure that applicants with the right skills and knowledge can join the UK workforce as quickly as possible while ensuring high standards of care.
The NMC is also considering making it easier for nurses to rejoin the register after a career break by allowing them to take the same test of competence that overseas nurses must sit, rather than forcing returners to undertake a course that can take between three and 12 months to complete.
The NMC Council will consider the return to practice proposals at its meeting on Wednesday 27 March.
To maintain its Stability and standard, the NMC will also establish a new test of competence assurance panel to ensure consistency of tests across different test center.These changes show that the NMC is playing its part in positively improving the experience of those wanting to join the NMC’s register.

  1. Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog
    jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Thank you

  2. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words
    in your post seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser
    compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The
    layout look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Thanks

  3. What a great step to start the test.Hopefully the exam would not be difficult because experience wise as nurse is more than enough to be compassionate and to render quality care to patients.
