Our statutory role is to protect the public. We set standards for education, to ensure nurses and midwives have the appropriate skills and competencies when they begin work. We keep a register of all nurses and midwives who have met these standards and have been admitted to our register. Who this guide is for This guide is for applicants who are applying for registration through the EU registration process. To be eligible you must be a European Union (EU) or European Economic  Area (EEA) national and trained as a nurse or midwife in the EU or EEA. For more information on eligibility under the EU registration process please refer to ‘Eligibility for registration’ on p age 4. Important note Please note that it is a criminal offence to pose as a registered nurse or midwife or to provide false or misleading information in the UK. If at any point in the application process we discover that your application is in any way fraudulent, we will not continue with your application and you may be liable for prosecution. If, after registration, we discover that any part of your application was fraudulent, we will remove you from the register and you would be liable for prosecution.  Page 4 Introduction Eligibility for registration In order to be considered for recognition and registration, you must fulfil one of the following criteria : ã You are an EU national and   have been trained and registered in an EU or EEAmember state. ã You are an EU national and were trained in a country outside the EU or EEA buthave been registered in an EU member state and have been lawfully practising inthat member state for at least three consecutive years. ã You are the spouse, civil partner, child or dependent under the age of 21 of an EUnational and you are using ‘enforceable EU rights’ to locate to the UK with your spouse, parent or civil partner, and you are entitled to be treated no less favourablythan a national of an EU member state.If you do not meet the above criteria, you should apply through our overseas registration route.
