Significant drop in EU nurse numbers 'for first time in years'


The reduction in EU nurses entering the NMC Register is 99% connected to the ridiculous English requirements put in place by the NMC in January 2016 and 1% because of Brexit. If all us native speakers were to attempt the IELTS exam tomorrow most of us would fail to reach the NMC requirement. If the required grade was reduced from a 7 to a 6.5 we would see a dramatic increase in the number of EU nurses entering the NMC Register and a zero effect on patient safety based on English Competencies.
