Nurse (Level One)

A Nurse (Level One) is a CARE PROFESSIONAL.

NURSES trained within the United Kingdom may initially join the Nursing and Midwifery Council Register as a Level One Nurse, also known as a Registered Nurse, after the Nursing and Midwifery Council receives course completion details and declaration of good character from the Higher Education Institution where they qualified.

This reflects a standard of proficiency considered necessary for safe and effective practice under Level 1 Nurses Sub-part 1 of the Nursing and Midwifery Council Register.

Note: NURSES trained within the European Union or Overseas can also join the Nursing and Midwifery Council Register as a Level One Nurse. See the Nursing and Midwifery Council website for the requirements.

Registration as a Level One Nurse (Registered Nurse) will be in one of four fields of practice:

  1. Adult Nursing
  2. Mental Health Nursing
  3. Learning Disabilities Nursing
  4. Children's Nursing.
