New Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Standards

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) is the professional body that evaluates and monitors all Nursing and Midwifery courses in the UK. Only education and training providers accredited by the NMC can deliver courses that lead to Qualified Nurse or Midwife status and registration with the NMC.

In 2018, the NMC released plans to update the standards for pre-registration nursing and midwifery programmes, starting after 28th January 2019. The new standards set out the entry requirements, length of programme, methods of assessment and the level of award.

To ensure that our programmes are at the forefront of nursing and midwifery education and meet the new standards, LJMU is working closely with our practice partners updating our course content and student assessment methods. The course content onthe next tab is based on the existing NMC standards, and will be different to the course delivered from September 2020, but will give you an insight into the type of study involved.

You can find more information about the changes on the NMC website?, or you can contact our Admissions team if you have any questions about applying.

Modules

Please visit the Liverpool John Moores University website for detailed module information.

Assessment methods

Assessment is through a combination of exams, essays and assignments, workbooks, portfolios and presentations.

On top of this there will be practical work and clinical assessment, which will be done either at the university or in practice where you will be assessed by clinical mentors. You will be offered feedback at various points during the course and support will always be readily available from your individual module tutors should you need advice or guidance at any time. We believe that constructive feedback is vital in helping you identify your strengths as well as the areas where you may need to put in more work.
