To date, 10,132 registration applications have been completed and there are approximately 3500 open applications in the system being processed.
Due to the high volume of applications which have been submitted during the last few weeks, it may take up to 8 weeks for these to be processed. Those who have submitted their applications promptly can continue to practise in their social care role while their application is being processed.
Our Customer Services line is extremely busy during this period and we are asking applicants and employers to only use this service if they need urgent assistance to complete a registration application. The Registration Team will be in touch if anything further is required to complete an application, so please continue to check your email regularly.
If you have not yet submitted your application, please do this immediately. You can apply for registration, upload your verified ID or pay your fee using the NISCC Online Registration Service at https://niscconline.hscni.net
