Level Two Nurse

All Level Two Nurses, previously known as Enrolled Nurses, must be registered on the Nursing and Midwifery Council Register. They are then entitled to call themselves a Registered Nurse and must be able to adjust their practice in response to changing circumstances and changing PATIENT/ client needs.

This reflects a standard of proficiency considered necessary for safe and effective practice under Level 2 Nurses Sub-part 2 of the Nursing and Midwifery Council Register.

This level remains open only for those nurses in the United Kingdom are already qualified and working at that level, and also for European Nurses who may access it through their right to freedom of movement.'
