Appealing an overseas registration decision

If you are not satisfied with your decision, you can lodge an appeal with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) if you have been:

  • Refused registration
  • Given an adaptation and assessment decision/Aptitude Test 
  • Failed your adaptation and assessment placement or failed full Aptitude Test

You must lodge your appeal within 56 days of receiving your decision. You need to complete an online form which you can access by logging into the My Account section

After you have lodged an appeal, your application will be reviewed by NMBI’s Registration Committee at its next meeting. The Registration Committee, which is made up of seven members of the NMBI Board, may decide to:

  • Uphold the original decision
  • Seek further information
  • Issue a new decision
