In partnership with key stakeholders NIPEC facilitated a small Project Group to develop an Accredited Prior Learning Information fact sheet.

The purpose of this fact sheet is to provide guidance for registrants who do not currently hold the academic credits at the relevant levels to access degree level modules, and wish to do so. This information applies primarily to Nursing and Midwifery registrants who are on the live Nursing and Midwifery (NMC) register and hold an academic award described as a Certificate Level Award. These registrants may have considerable experience and/or have undertaken a range of learning activities throughout their career, which may or may not have been accredited.

The fact sheet is available from the link below.
