NHS International Nursing and Midwifery Associations

Last updated Friday 1st September 2023

For a number of consecutive years, we have seen significant growth in the numbers of people from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) joining the permanent nursing register.

‘The health and wellbeing and professional support of our entire workforce is a top priority and we work closely with groups and associations representing our international nurses and midwives – known as “diaspora groups” – to ensure that these staff have the pastoral and professional support they need.

If you are an international nurse or midwife and would like to find out more about the support available, you can find a community that’s relevant to you on our web page.’
