NMC investigations can take time and you may find that you have restrictions placed upon your practice. You may have concerns about maintaining your
registration through Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and accessing other learning; the latter can be harder if you are not working under a contract of
employment as this is often a condition of acceptance onto courses.
Continue with your CPD, your reflection on what has happened, and any learning that is relevant to your situation.
Guidance on reflection with links to several models of reflection is available here
Securing any voluntary and paid work (undertaken within any restrictions on practice set by the NMC) can be helpful with your case as you may be able to obtain references to present to the NMC panel.
During the NMC investigation period, it is helpful to engage with the NMC process. We understand this can feel overwhelming and the support
provided by the RCN can help you through this difficult time.
Additionally you may have questions about disclosing your situation to prospective employers.
Depending upon your circumstances, our advice guide 'applying for a job following dismissal' may be useful.
