All You Need To Know About the New NMC Test of Competence
January 22, 2021
Nurses and midwives who have received their primary training outside of the European Economic Area and wish to obtain the UK registration are required to pass a test of competency conducted by the Nursing and Midwifery Council. Passing this test enables international nurses to apply for nursing jobs in the UK. This test includes two parts and assesses the fundamental professional knowledge, skills, and attributes that are considered important for offering safe healthcare in the UK. If the nurses wish to be a part of the recruitment drives in the UK then taking and passing the competency test is extremely important. Recently, the NMC released new standards for nurses. It has been decided by the NMC to test the candidates with the new test of competence from April 2021 onwards.
