HomeRegistration Candidates Health Care Facilities

Find a health care facility for your placement

If you received an 'adaptation and assessment' decision letter from the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) and if you choose the adaptation and assessment option, then you need to complete an adaptation and assessment placement.

Your decision letter tells you in what division you need to complete the placement. You can only complete your placement in an NMBI approved health care facility for the division specified in this letter. 

Please note that:

  • You are responsible for contacting the placement sites
  • Some sites may be full
  • The site list is updates anually. The placement list was last updated on 14 November 2017

Once you have secured your placement, the next step is to go on the Candidate Register for the duration of your placement.
