The survey by nursing regulator the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) shows that since March 2020, when the temporary register was created, over half of registrants have worked in nursing.

The survey of 3,690 respondents showed:

  • 57.5 percent say they have worked since joining the temporary register
  • around 46 percent are still working
  • a third are open to the idea of re-joining the permanent register, with 15 percent saying they’re highly likely to.

Most people have been working part-time, and those looking to stay on want to continue with similar working patterns.

Where people are no longer working, it is most likely due to employer demand. However, around a quarter cited stress, lack of support or poor culture.

A total of Of 13,043 people on the temporary register were contacted for the survey.

The temporary register will stay open until the Secretary of State declares the emergency over. More information can be found in the NMC Covid-19 hub.
