Many registered Nurses in the UK might want to migrate to other countries like Canada, Australia, USA among other countries for various reasons and might be required to send verification from the UK Nursing and Midwifery Council. To nurses who are not familiar with the process of requesting for verification, below is the process.
Step 1: Login into your UK NMC online account NMC Online Services (nmc-uk.org)
Step 2: Click on My Registration at the top of your account
Step 3: Click on the last option on the drop down which is Certificate of Current Professional Status
Step 4: Select YES to all the statements and click NEXT
Step 5: Select the country where the organization you are sending the verification is domicile among the country list in the dropdown menu. For instance if your verification is going to CGFNS, select USA.
Step 6: Licensing or Registration Board select the name of the organization you are sending it to. For instance CGFNS. Immediately after selecting the name of the organization you are sending it to, the address will be displayed.
Step 7: Then input your CGFNS order number into the space in front of Application reference number, this makes your verification easy to track.
Step 8: Tick the box in front of the statement I understand that by signing up to this process my data will be transferred outside the EU/EEA and that I may have fewer or different rights once my data has left the UK and click on submit. You should receive an email after your CCPS is ready and will be asked to make the payment
Step 9: Login into your NMC online account NMC Online Services (nmc-uk.org) and make the payment of £34 with either a credit or debit card. You must make this payment within 28 days otherwise the generated certificate will expire and you will need to reapply.
Step 10: Once payment is made you will receive another email from NMC confirming that your verification has been shared with your chosen organization. Then wait between 3 to 14 days to have it appear on your portal with CGFNS.
Note: Discard the form you downloaded from CGFNS as you don’t need it for UK NMC verification of your UK License.
