MyNMBI - new registration system

When will I start to use MyNMBI, the new online portal?

The new online portal will be made available from Monday 28 September 2020 after all of the applicant and registrant records have been transferred to MyNMBI. NMBI will shortly be sending login credentials to all candidates and applicants. Please do not create a new account if you have already commenced an application with the NMBI.

What date in September will the new system go live?

The go-live date is set for Monday 28 September. NMBI will send login credentials to all candidates and current applicants at the end of September 2020. Credentials will be sent to registrants in October 2020. Please do not create a new account if you have already commenced an application with the NMBI.

How will I renew my registration this year?

All registrants will use the new system from this autumn for their annual registration renewal. The renewal process will include updating your information and paying your annual retention fee. The process is quick and easy and user guides will be available on our website in case you need them.

I am in the middle of a qualification recognition or registration application; how will I complete this process now?

If you started your qualification recognition or registration application using the paper-based process (that is you requested an application pack and are posting your documents into NMBI) then you should continue sending your paper documents.  

We will migrate your record to MyNMBI this September if the process is not complete and you will be able to track your application online. We will contact you with more details on this process in late September 2020.

Can I submit my application before September 2020?

We have stopped accepting paper-based applications. Please wait until after 28 September 2020 to commence the application process online via NMBI.

I am an overseas nurse or midwife. Will I be able to apply on MyNMBI?

Yes, you can start the application process on MyNMBI after 28 September 2020.

When will I have more information on the new process?

MyNMBI is designed to be intuitive; you will answer a series of questions to allow us to classify your application and you will be informed of what documents you need to submit. We will also publish a step-by-step user guide to support you through the application process in August.

What will I be able to do online on MyNMBI

All registration services will be available on MyNMBI. These include:

Online Process Who will it benefit
Candidate Registration Students completing an under-graduate NMBI recognised programme at an Irish Higher Education Institute
Graduate Registration Irish graduates from local NMBI recognised programmes registering for the first time
Annual Renewal All of our registrants
Voluntary removal Registrants who wish to remove their name from one or all divisions of the Register

You will be able to check all your information and the status of any application you have pending. MyNMBI will also inform you of actions you need to complete to maintain or obtain registration.

The Candidate Register will be publicly available for the first time and will update in real-time. It, like the Register of Nurses and Midwives, will also be searchable by all though our web site.
