NMBI welcomes the statement made by President Michael D. Higgins on Friday evening following his signature on the Emergency Measure in the Public Interest (Covid-19) Bill 2020. Under this Bill registrants can request to return to the Register of Nurses and Midwives in Ireland without being charged restoration fees.

NMBI welcomes the statement made by President Michael D. Higgins on Friday evening following his signature on the Emergency Measure in the Public Interest (Covid-19Bill 2020. Under this Bill registrants can request to return to the Register of Nurses and Midwives in Ireland without being charged restoration fees.

Section 108 of the new legislation allows the NMBI to quickly restore previous registrants to the register on a temporary basis without incurring any restoration fees. Where an applicant has submitted a completed restoration application form, NMBI will restore that applicant to the register under this legal provision within one to two working days.

Applicants who are restored to the register under these legal provisions will be displayed as ‘active’ on the Register of Nurses and Midwives. While letters of good standing will not delay a restoration, NMBI will continue to await these for all applicants temporarily restored to the register. Should an applicant wish to remain on the register beyond the emergency he/she will need to provide letters of good standing from the jurisdictions where he/she has practised since leaving the Irish register.
