From 2 April 2018, applicants for registration with NMBI who have qualifications from outside of Ireland must now satisfy the Board that they have the necessary knowledge of English to communicate effectively in their practice.
 
Communication is defined as speaking, reading, listening and writing, and the applicant must provide evidence that demonstrates competence in these four mandatory skills.
 
To facilitate this, it is proposed to offer all applicants from outside of Ireland a number of methods by which they can demonstrate that they meet the NMBI English Language requirements:

  • Pathway 1: Trained in English in a NMBI Recognised Country
  • Pathway 2: Registered and practised in English
  • Pathway 3: English Language Tests
