NMBI statement on registration for nurses practising in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

NMBI statement on registration for nurses practising in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

The requirement to hold dual registration in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland has always been in place for nurses wishing to practise in both jurisdictions. Nursing and midwifery are regulated professions, and regulations are in place to ensure patient safety. Any nurse/midwife who wishes to practise in the professions in the Republic must be registered with NMBI.

NMBI has been liaising with the Department of Health in Northern Ireland and wishes to assure colleagues that we will continue to support them through the application process.

NMBI welcomes applications from Northern Ireland and Britain (UK). Our staff are currently supporting applicants with this process and will continue to do so over the coming weeks.

Applications to NMBI from nurses/midwives in Northern Ireland and Britain continue to be assessed as closely as possible to the European Application pathway. UK-awarded qualifications will also continue to be processed within the same timelines as EU qualifications.
