Regulation in practice
This information is provided to help nurses and midwives apply their professional judgement, putting regulatory principles into practice.
The Code states that:
“As a professional, you are personally accountable for actions and omissions in your practice and must always be able to justify your decisions”.

We have withdrawn the Regulation in Practice Topics section of the website. The material it contained was historical in nature and was reviewed. Via user feedback it was clear that the status of this material was not clear and it was important to make sure that our requirements of nurses and midwives are covered in standards and guidance.
Some of the Regulation in Practice themes have now been incorporated into the revised Code, as appropriate.

Information on raising and escalating concerns and safeguarding is provided to assist nurses and midwives in applying these principles in their own practice.
