Outcomes of Assessment
Following the assessment of your application, NMBI will inform you of one of the assessment outcomes:
1. Your qualifications have been recognised.
2. Further information is required.
3. You are required to successfully complete a compensation measure (applies to G2 and G3 applicants only). A compensation measure refers to a period of adaptation or an aptitude test that needs to be successfully completed before we can recognise your qualifications.
This decision is taken:
- If the theory and clinical content or hours of your overall nursing or midwifery education and training falls short of NMBI requirements, and
- You have enough hours or appropriate content to allow you to complete compensation measure(s).
4. Provisional refusal to recognise qualifications. This means that there are significant deficits in theory or/and clinical content of your training compared to NMBI requirements.
To proceed to the next stage, your qualifications need to be recognised first. This happens when:
1. NMBI informs you that the clinical and theoretical components of your education and training meets the NMBI standard (meaning no compensation measure is needed), or
2. You have successfully completed a compensation measure - a period of adaptation or an aptitude test - as requested by NMBI.
