The UK’s Nursing and Midwifery Council or NMC has announced today that it is making changes to the IELTS level or score required by overseas trained nurses seeking registration to work in the UK.

“Under the proposal, nurses and midwives will be required to continue to achieve a minimum overall level of 7 in the IELTS test, but in future a level 6.5 in writing would be accepted alongside a level 7 in reading, listening and speaking.”
