NMBI Registration Department Continues Positive Engagement with Stakeholders
|Ray Healy, Director of Registration
NMBI is continuing its engagement with a range of stakeholders on its registration process, particularly for overseas applications, Director of Registration Ray Healy has said.
The number of Decision Letters issued to overseas applicants in the past two months is double that issued in the same period in 2021. More than 500 were issued in February alone.
The Decision Letter is a key stepping stone for overseas applicants who want to work in the Irish healthcare system.
“I want to thank all stakeholders who have engaged with NMBI since the beginning of the year,” said Mr Healy.
“I particularly want to thank Migrant Nurses Ireland for their valuable input and their willingness to share our updated guides with potential applicants in countries outside the European Union. As a result the number of applications which were deemed complete when submitted to NMBI has steadily increased.
“This is leading to faster delivery of Decision Letters for more nurses and midwives who want to work here in Ireland.”
Mr Healy added: “We have also recruited more staff to the Registration Department and I want to acknowledge the hard work of all members of my team.”
