Professional and regulatory bodies

  • Comment

This page provides a list relevant professional bodies for those interested in studying nursing or midwifery.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC)

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) assumed its statutory responsibilities from the UKCC as the regulatory body on 1st April 2002.

The NMC inherited from the UKCC the standards already set by them. It also inherited from the English National Board for nursing, midwifery and health visiting (ENB), the responsibility to approve educational institutions and programmes leading to registerable or recordable qualifications.

  • course certification
