NMC consultation on training time limits - have your say

Nurse checking watch

20 / 1 / 2015 11.54am

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) is consulting on proposals to remove time restrictions on completion times of its nursing and midwifery training programmes.

NHS Employers will submit a response on behalf of providers, and wants to hear from you. 

As it stands, student nurses and midwives need to complete full-time programmes within five years and part-time programmes within seven years in order to be eligible for registration. 

The NMC hopes that by removing these time limits, it would be offering greater flexibility for students, and minimising the likelihood that unforeseen and unfortunate circumstances prevent students from completing their courses. Education institutions would still be responsible for overseeing students’ involvement in their programmes.

To find out more about the proposals, which will have an impact for current and future staff, and how to contribute to the NHS Employers' joint response by 26 February 2015, find out more on the NMC consultation web page or email hanna.murphy@nhsemployers.org
