The Nursing and Midwifery Council's (NMC) revised code for nurses and midwives will come into effect for all nurses and midwives from 31 March 2015.
The NMC code is shaped around four key principles which state that good nurses and midwives should:
- prioritise people
- practise effectively
- preserve safety
- promote professionalism and trust.
The code has been revised to take into consideration the new revalidation model which is due to come into force at the end of 2015. For further information please see our webpages on revalidation for nurses and midwives.
