RCN seeks membersí views on NMC council
Published: 20 June 2012
The Royal College of Nursing is seeking feedback from members before responding to a Department of Health consultation on reducing the size of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) ruling council.
The NMC council is currently composed of 14 members, with half being registered nurses or midwives and half being lay members, with representation from across the UK.
The RCN has published a briefing that includes background information on the NMC council and is encouraging members to have their say by completing a short online survey to inform the RCN’s response.
Read the briefing and complete the survey in Changes to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) constitution.
The RCN is seeking members’ opinions on the size of the NMC council and how this impacts on the council's decision making and strategic leadership. The RCN is also asking members whether registrants should fill the key leadership roles in the NMC and how the council should be split between registrant and lay members.
