Guidance for students

Members of the public cannot always see the difference between a student nurse or midwife, and someone who is qualified and registered with the NMC


That is why your conduct is important in upholding the reputation of the professions, when you are studying and in your personal life. Our guidance sets out the standards of personal and professional conduct for students and is also designed to prepare you for life as a registered nurse or midwife.
