Overseas nurses most likely to join permanent register

A Nursing and Midwifery Council COVID-19 temporary register analysis report has revealed that overseas applicants and men are most likely to join the permanent register.

In March 2020, a COVID-19 temporary register was established to support the UK’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and is made up of three cohorts of people: those who left the permanent register in the last three years, those who left the permanent register in the last three to five years, and eligible overseas registration candidates.

Key findings:

  • Most people on the temporary register have an address in England (83 percent).
  • Over 97 percent of overseas applicants said they were highly likely to join the permanent register compared to just one in five (20 percent) of people who had left the register in the last three years, and (27 percent) of those who had left between three to five years ago.
  • Over three quarters of overseas applicants that wanted to join the permanent register were of Asian ethnicity.
  • England has the largest proportion of overseas applicants (21 percent) and Scotland has the lowest (two percent).
  • People on the temporary register tended to be older than those on the permanent register, however, a large majority (93.9 percent) of overseas applicants were aged 21-40.
  • 5.1 percent of those on the temporary register were primary carers of older person or people (65 years and over).
  • A higher proportion of men than women said they were likely to join the permanent register.
