Fitness to Practice


What is Fitness to Practice?

Fitness to Practice applies to students studying on professional courses (such as nursing or midwifery), who must uphold certain professional standards to be registered to practise in the UK. These standards relate to aspects such as conduct, competence, and physical health.
