Application Process

Application Process

To practise nursing or midwifery in Ireland, you will need to complete two processes:  

  1. Qualifications recognition process 
  2. Registration process

The qualification(s) recognition process


The registration process

If you are already on the NMBI Register and you would like to apply for registration in another division, you may need to go through the qualifications recognition and registration processes again. 

If you submit your second application for qualifications recognition within seven days of the first one, you will be exempt from paying the qualifications recognition fee the second time. 

For more information on the overseas qualifications recognition and registration processes, please read our Applicant Guide.
