The Council for Nurses and Midwives in Malta (CNM) regulates nursing and midwifery in Malta. The CNM is responsible to the Ministry of Health, the Elderly and Community Care. Its functions are defined in the Health Care Professions Act 2003. The CNM regulates the entry to and exit of a nurse or midwife to the register and is responsible for upholding the 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.
