The Nursing and Midwifery Council has said it will monitor the impact of its fee rise on the size of the nursing workforce.
The new annual registration fee of £120 will take effect from March 2015. Unions have warned that the increase could persuade tens of thousands of staff to leave the profession.
NMC chief executive and registrar Jackie Smith said the nursing regulator would keep track of its impact on the numbers of nursing staff “as best as we can”.
What impact do you think the fee rise will have on the profession?
