It is your legal and professional responsibility to ensure that your name is on the Register if you practise nursing or midwifery in Ireland. It is an offence to practise nursing/midwifery if your name is not on the Register. This includes clinical practice, nursing /midwifery management, education or research.
Once your name has been removed from the Register your status changes on the Register to “unregistered”, and you are sent a letter by NMBI to inform you of the change of status.
Furthermore, in accordance with Section 82 of the Act, the Minister for Health, the Health Service Executive and any known employer will be notified regarding removals from the Register.
