HomeEducation Higher Education Institutions Approvals: Nursing Programmes

NMBI’s eight standards for nursing

There are eight standards which Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and associated health care institutions must adhere to meet NMBI’s accreditation requirements for nursing programmes.

Each standard consists of a criterion statement, standard statement and a series of indicators. Indicators assist the education providers, HEI and Associated Health Care Providers (AHCPs), to identify the evidence required to demonstrate that the programme is fit for purpose and for practice to meet the criteria for professional approval.
