NMC eases language requirement for overseas nurses
NMC added Malta into Majority English Speaking Country List.
Under the new update from the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) UK, overseas nurses working in Malta can now join the NMC register without meeting the language requirements.
As per the recent update, nurses with one-year clinical experience in Malta can now join the NMC register without meeting the IELTS/OET requirement. You will need to show that you have been practising recently to meet the NMC requirements. You should also provide your most recent registration certificate from the Malta Nursing Council.
On top of these requirements, you would need to provide employment references from your employer in Malta, where you are currently practising in so that NMC can confirm your employment with them. NMC will also check with your employer to confirm whether you have the necessary knowledge of English to practise safely and effectively.
