NCZ | Registration Information of Nurses/Midwives
It is incumbent upon all nurses/midwives practicing in Zimbabwe to meet all the requirements set by the Nurses Council of Zimbabwe. The Council registers for all qualified nurses/midwives practicing in the country either in the private or public institutions and maintains these registers. Each nurse should ensure that they pay their registration fees and annual subscriptions as stipulated by the Nurses Council of Zimbabwe. Failure to register or pay annual fees on time attracts either a Penalty or Suspension from Practicing.
At the time of registration, each nurse/midwife pays a registration fee and is issued with a registration certificate and a practicing certificate. The practicing certificate is subject to annual renewal. All the General Nurses should pay their annual fees by the 31st of March while the rest should pay by the 31st of January.No advance payment is allowed for annual fees as Practicing Certificate are renewed yearly depending on the nurses conduct. Each practicing nurse should be able to produce the Practicing Certificate when required to do so.
