How to apply for registration to the NMC?

  1. 0
    I am sorry for the noob question but please can someone with a kind heart help me out regarding the steps in application for registration to the UK NMC? I am from a non-EU country, and I believe the process is a bit more complex.
    I just got my IELTS TRF, and I passed the required bandscore.
    I am particularly confused when to pay and how much to pay... I understand there are two application packs. And I still haven't figured out how to get the first one (See how much I need help, haha). And where do we get the PRF (Personal Reference Number) or PIN from?
    PLEASE! HELP ME OUT!
    Thanks!!!

    Moved to the International forum,

    Plenty of threads discussing NMC so would suggest a search for them plus start at the NMC website Overseas trained section http://www.nmc-uk.org/Registration/J...e-the-EU--EEA/

    Thanks for the reply, Silverdragon!
    Uhm, I am quite new in here, and I don't know where to go or where to search, I'm sorry...
    If it's not too much to ask can you please send me a link directing me to the answer to my question? Thank you very much!

    Thanks again Silverdragon! Ive read through the website and the PDFs I downloaded, but I still cannot find the info that I need. Would you happen to know where do I get the Personal Reference Number? Do I have to pay something before they give me that or what?

    I image you will not get ref number until application is submitted

    Thanks for your help, Silverdragon!

    I have just received my initial application pack from NMC. They never confirmed that they received my request, but they actually did, as apparent to them sending me the initial application pack. I have already sent the form back to the NMC and paid the fee using a credit card. What do I expect from the second pack?

    I might also be having a problem because I have learned that the hospital I had my post-registration experience with is registered in a SECONDARY HOSPITAL STATUS. Is experience from a TERTIARY HOSPITAL mandatory? Anyone here registered with the UK NMC with post-registration (PRC) experience from a SECONDARY HOSPITAL?

    Thanks!
