Council of Nurses & Midwives



The COUNCIL FOR NURSES AND MIDWIVES, Malta (CNM) regulates the Nursing and Midwifery Professions in Malta. Its function is defined in the Health Care Professions Act 2003.
One of the main functions of the CNM is to regulate the entry to and exit from a register of health care professional if he/she is a nurse or a midwife.
The Council is responsible for the upholding of high professional and educational standards for both professions. CNM published the Code of Ethics for Midwives and Nurses in 1997 and is committed towards the attainment of excellence in the delivery of professional care by encouraging continuing professional development amongst its registrants.
