The Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria has recently announced important updates regarding the guidelines and requirements for the verification of certificates to the Foreign Nursing Boards Council. In this blog post, we will discuss the revised guidelines and provide valuable information for all applicants seeking certificate verification.
To initiate the verification application process, applicants are required to visit the official website of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria at http://licence.nmcn.gov.ng. Upon logging in, applicants can find the verification application link to begin their application.
It is important to note that a non-refundable fee per application is mandatory for verification to Foreign Boards of Nursing. The specific fee amount can be found on the portal and covers the cost of courier services to the applicant’s institution(s) of training, place of work, and the Foreign board.
Eligible applicants must have a minimum of two (2) years of post-qualification experience from the date of issuance of their permanent practicing license. Applications with provisional licenses will be rejected outright. The Council requires a letter of Good Standing from the Chief Executive Officer of the applicant’s place(s) of work and the last nursing training institution attended. Responses to these letters should be addressed directly to the Registrar/CEO of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria. It is important to note that the Council will not accept these letters through the applicant.
Additionally, applicants must have an active practicing license with a minimum of six months remaining before expiration. During the application process, applicants are required to upload their Certificate(s) of Registration. Notification of Registration will not be accepted.
Throughout the verification application process, applicants will receive prompt notifications regarding the status of their application via email and their dashboard.
Important points to note:
a. The processing of verification applications takes a minimum of six (6) months. b. Applicants must ensure that all requirements are complete before initiating the verification application, as incomplete documentation will not be processed. c. The implementation of these guidelines will take effect from 1st March 2024. d. All pending verification applications before these revised guidelines will be processed accordingly.
We kindly request heads of nursing institutions to disseminate the content of this circular to all nurses. Stay informed, follow the new guidelines, and ensure a smooth verification process for your certificate.
