Nigerian Nurses aspiring to move to United Kingdom to work can now do so without breaking their banks as the Nursing and Midwifery Council has slashed verification fees by 67.3% (from ₦53,500 to ₦17,500) Nursesarena.com has learnt. The fee was slashed last week according to multiple sources who were privy to the change.
Recall that Nursesarena.com posted last month that NMCN is in the process of reviewing the verification fees for UK verification See https://nursesarena.com/travel-nursing/nigeria-nursing-and-midwifery-council-begins-online-verification-to-uk-nmc/
