NMBI has issued final reminder renewal notices for 2021 in the past few days. The 2021 renewal facility will close for the year at 23:59 on 16 April 2021 and the Board will consider removals on 20 April 2021. 

If you are one of the 73,150 registrants who have already renewed, NMBI would like to thank you for doing so and you can ignore the reminder letter if you receive one.

All nurses and midwives who practise in Ireland must, by law, be listed on the Register of Nurses and Midwives. Practice includes clinical practice, nursing or midwifery management, education, and research.

If registrants do not renew or voluntarily remove their registration, NMBI will need to remove them from the Register. The Board considers removals from the Register for failure to pay the Annual Retention Fee (Section77 (1) of the Nurses and Midwives Act 2011). Please note that notifications of removals are sent to known employers, the Minister for Health and the Health Service Executive (Section 82 of the Act).

A registrant can voluntarily remove his/her name from the Nurses and Midwives Register on MyNMBI. This service is free of charge and the deadline is 16 April 2021. 

Registrants can renew through MyNMBI, our new online self-serve registration system which was launched in September 2020. If you need guidance, we encourage you to visit our website which has a video showing each step of the renewal process and a step-by-step guide.

Registrants can also talk to our customer care team on 1890 200 116 (open Monday – Friday from 9am until 5.30pm.). Please note you can no longer renew by phone. Renewal in 2021 must be done through the MyNMBI portal using a laptop or desktop computer. If you need any assistance, you can also email us on regservices@nmbi.ie

Once you renew your registration, a digital Certificate of Annual Retention will be saved in the ‘My Documents’ section of MyNMBI

If your name is removed from the Register for non-payment of your Annual Renewal and you subsequently wish to restore your name to the Register, a restoration fee of €250 in addition to your Annual Renewal of €100 will apply. You will also need to comply with the restoration requirements at the time of application. 

Please note that if your annual renewal is not received by the deadline, we will be legally obliged to include your name on the list of registrants that will be considered by the Board for removal. The NMBI Registration Committee will recommend to the Board of NMBI at its next meeting on 24 March that the board proceeds with the removal of nurses/midwives for non-payment of fees on April 20.
