The revised Code for nurses and midwives is now live!


Effective from the 31 March 2015, the Code presents the professional standards that nurses and midwives must keep to.

The Code will be a focus for professional reflection during revalidation, which will be introduced later this year.

What’s in the Code?
The Code has been developed in collaboration with many employers, nurses, midwives, patients and carers. It is shaped around four themes, which together show what good nursing and midwifery practice looks like:

•  Priorities people
•  Practice effectively
•  Preserve safety
•  Promote professionalism and trust

The Nursing and Midwifery Council has posted a copy of the Code to every registered nurse and midwife. You can read the Code in full here, along with details about what’s changed since the previous version.
