The Competence Assessment for Overseas Nurses public consultation is now open.
The Draft NMBI (2018) Competence Assessment for Overseas Nurses (Second Edition) document has been developed for nurses educated and trained outside Ireland who do not qualify for registration under the EU Directive. It is designed to provide guidance on a period of adaptation and assessment in an Irish health care facility and guidance on the development and provision of an aptitude test by an educational provider in advance of registration by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI).
The current document Competence Assessment for Overseas Nurses (Second Edition) was revised to reflect the updated NMBI (2016) Nurse Registration Programmes Standards and Requirements (Fourth Edition) and to incorporate the guidance on the provision of an aptitude test.
NMBI would appreciate your views. To provide feedback, please click here.
The closing date for consultation is Friday 25th January 2019 at 5pm.
