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 in 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 closer to September 2020.

Can I submit my application before September 2020?

Yes. Please continue to follow the paper-based process for the moment. It is important to note however that we will stop issuing application packs for a short period before we switch from the current system to enable us to migrate all data to MyNMBI and to launch it for users. 

We plan to communicate the exact dates of the application freeze on our website.

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

Yes, if you are planning to apply after September 2020.

From September all overseas qualification recognition and registration applications should be submitted and will be processed through MyNMBI.

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.
