NMC Change English Language Requirements
Recently the NMC have changed their requirements for nurses that require IELTS or OET to obtain their NMC licence.
Following the change nurses and midwives will still be required to achieve a minimum overall level of 7 in the test. However, a level 6.5 in writing will be accepted alongside a level 7 in reading, listening and speaking.
This is great news for nurses who have been so close to the level 7.
Please check your IELTS scores and see if you now have a pass!
