NMBI today announced that it will accept payments in January for its Annual Retention Fee (ARF). This grace period will allow extra time to pay an annual fee that is normally due on January 1.  

Speaking about the NMBI customer service call volume this week, Shelia McClelland, CEO NMBI said, “If you missed the January 1 deadline there is still time to pay your ARF. To support our customer service team with late renewals we have activated a grace period for payment. We would encourage everyone to pay as soon as possible as employers normally seek certification at the start of each calendar year”.

Nurses and midwives practising in Ireland have a professional and legal responsibility to have their name on the Register of Nurses and Midwives which is maintained by the NMBI. This includes clinical practice, nursing/midwifery management, education and research.

Each year it is necessary for all nurses and midwives working in Ireland to pay their ARF to maintain their registration. Employers will normally seek a certificate from nurses and midwives at the start of each year.

For further information on payment please visit the Annual Retention Fee page.
