Proposed changes to NMC language test requirements

Proposed changes to NMC language test requirements The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) will consider proposed changes to the requirements for overseas nurses taking the International English Language Test System (IELTS) in its council meeting on 28 November.

The NMC has received feedback that despite being able to communicate to a high level in English, many nurses and midwives taking the IELTS test were just missing out on achieving a level 7.

Under the proposal, nurses and midwives will still be required to achieve a minimum overall level 7 in the ILETS test, but a level of 6.5 in writing alongside a level 7 in reading, listening and speaking will be accepted. NHS Employers
