The 2024 annual registration renewal window is now open. Registrants can renew online up to 31 January 2024. 

The 2024 annual registration renewal window is now open. Registrants can renew online up to 31 January 2024. 

All nurses or midwives practising in Ireland are required by law to have their name on the Register of Nurses and Midwives which is maintained by NMBI and each year it is necessary to pay the annual renewal fee to maintain their registration. 

Please note that student nurses and midwives are not required to renew. Any nurses or midwives who have registered for the first time on or after 1 September are not required to renew until the 2025 annual renewal cycle. 

Notices containing details on how to renew have been issued by email to all registrants. If you have not received your notice by 31 October, please check your spam, junk or other email folders. If your email is not in these folders, you can contact our customer care centre at 0818 200 116 (+353 818 200 116 from outside Ireland) or email regservices@nmbi.ie and we will send you the details. When contacting us, please provide your name, Personal Identification Number (PIN) and date of birth to ensure we can deal with your query efficiently. 

The annual renewal process must be completed through our online portal, MyNMBI. You can pay online using your own debit or credit card or if you are using a card issued to another person, please ensure that you have authorisation to do so. Under EU requirements, the card provider or bank will request authentication with Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) to complete the payment. Please note that we no longer accept renewal payments by phone. 

There is an annual fee of €100 for renewing your registration. This fee goes towards our work to support nurses and midwives to provide patient care to the highest standards. This work includes:  

  • Maintaining the Register of Nurses and Midwives and the Candidate Register for students.  
  • Developing standards and guidance for nurses and midwives.  
  • Assessing and approving education programmes for the professions.  
  • Investigating complaints made against registrants.

To assist registrants through the annual renewal process, we have created a step-by-step video as well as helpful guides, and we advise that registrants view these before renewing their registration. The guides can be accessed on our website or through the links below:

Frequently Asked Questions

MyNMBI is mobile enabled, allowing registrants to access the full range of services on their mobile or tablet device. For the best user experience, we recommend registrants use a laptop or desktop to renew their registration. Renewing online is easy and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete the process.

Please note that due to the large number of registrants who need to renew with NMBI, there may be times when the MyNMBI portal is slower processing details and payment, as a result of a high level of usage at any one time. If you experience this issue, we suggest that you log out and come back to the portal later. Peak usage tends to be in the evenings from 6 to 7pm.

While the annual renewal window is open until 31 January 2024, we encourage registrants to login and renew online as soon as possible to avoid any delays in processing during peak times.   

For those who require assistance to complete the renewal process, please call 0818 200 116 (+353 818 200 116 from outside Ireland), open Monday to Friday 9am - 5:30pm or email our Registration Department at regservices@nmbi.ie

 All registrants are legally obliged under Section 53 of the Nurses and Midwives Act, as amended to keep their details on the Register correct and up-to-date. These details include contact information (address, email address and phone number) and employment details.
