Policy for Programme Approval and Monitoring Processes

NMBI sets the standards and requirements for registration in any division of the register and specialist nursing and midwifery qualifications. NMBI sets the criteria for the approval of a body seeking to deliver an education and training programme and monitors adherence to these criteria to ensure ongoing compliance. 

This document presents an updated approach to the approval and monitoring of nursing and midwifery education and training programmes. It outlines the role of NMBI, education bodies and their Associated Health Care Providers (AHCPs) in our programme approval and monitoring processes.  

The processes outlined in this document relate to programme approval and monitoring of all pre first time registration programmes, post-registration programmes leading to registration and specialist nursing and midwifery education and training programmes. The processes are informed by our primary legislation, statutory instruments, our statement of strategy and our funding model. 

The document is divided into four sections: 
1.   Overview of NMBI programme approval and monitoring processes 
2.   Programme approval process 
3.   Programme monitoring process 
4.   Publishing inspection reports.
