Consultation opens on nursing associate fees

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has launched a consultation seeking views on the proposed registration fees for nursing associates.

Proposals outlined in the consultation would see the cost of registration for registered nursing associates set at £120, the same as for their nursing and midwifery counterparts.

NMC chief executive and Registrar, Jackie Smith, said: ‘We know that there will be broad a range of views on what the fees for nursing associates should be. The proposals are based on the core principle that the cost of regulation should be covered by those being regulated.’

It’s expected that nursing associates will be subject to the ‘full suite of regulation’, including the requirement to maintain their registration through revalidation.
