Nursing and Midwifery Council Warns Against Fraudulent License Renewal Offers

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (N&MC) has addressed a concerning social media post regarding instant license renewals without the need for Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points.

In the post in question, an individual claims to offer a hassle-free license renewal process at a fee, without requiring CPD points.

The N&MC, however, emphatically emphasized that such offers are fraudulent and should not be trusted.

They urged all those within the nursing profession, including Nurse Assistants, Nurses, and Midwives, as well as the general public, to disregard such deceitful posts and treat them with contempt.

“Kindly disregard such fraudulent posts and treat them with the contempt that they deserve”
