“It is an offence to practise nursing/midwifery without a valid practising certificate” [ Nurses and Midwives Act (Chapter 209) Section 26 (1) ]. “Any person who contravenes subsection (1) shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $10,000 and, in the case of a second or subsequent conviction, to a fine not exceeding $20,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 6 months or to both.”
The same penalty applies to the employer of the person.
In the event that a problem arises, we will conduct an investigation into the matter and communicate with you and the candidate to work out the best resolve for both parties.
