If you're experiencing issues with the NMC - such as an investigation into your practice, problems with admission or readmission to the register - our advice guides can help you.
Been referred to the NMC? The RCN is here for you
We recognise that being referred to the NMC can be distressing and isolating. Being referred can also lead to other issues with finances, relationships and maintaining your professional registration. Read our guidance here for practical information on what to expect and what RCN services are available to support you.
If you were not in RCN membership at the time of the incident that led to the referral, please read our advice on legal support for matters which occurred outside membership.

Readmission to the register: general dos and don'ts
Readmission to the NMC register is not a complicated process but it is important that it is completed accurately. It can take 2-6 weeks but incomplete/inaccurate information in your paperwork can mean it will take considerably longer.
