The 2023 annual registration renewal process is underway and registrants can renew up to 14 February 2023.
All nurses or midwives practising in Ireland are required by law to have their name on the Register of Nurses and Midwives which is maintained by NMBI and each year it is necessary to pay the annual renewal fee to maintain their registration.
Please note that student nurses and midwives are not required to renew as candidate registration is a once-off.
We would like to thank the more than 13,000 nurses and midwives who have completed their annual registration so far. While the renewal window is open until 14 February 2023, we encourage registrants to log in and renew online as soon as possible to avoid any delays in processing during peak hours.
The annual renewal process must be completed through our online portal, MyNMBI. Renewing your registration is easy and should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. You can pay online using your own debit or credit card or if you are using a card issued to another person, please ensure that you have authorisation to do so. Under new EU requirements, the card provider or bank will request authentication with Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) to complete the payment. Please note that we no longer accept renewal payments by phone.
There is an annual fee of €100 for renewing your registration. This fee goes towards our work to support nurses and midwives to provide patient care to the highest standards. This work includes:
- Maintaining the Register of Nurses and Midwives and the Candidate Register for students,
- Developing standards and guidance for nurses and midwives,
- Assessing and approving education programmes for the professions, and
- Investigating complaints made against registrants.
To assist registrants through the annual renewal process, we have created a number of useful guides and we advise that registrants view these before renewing their registration. The guides can be accessed through the links below and are also available on our website.
For those who require assistance to complete the renewal process, please call 0818 200 116 (Monday-Friday 9am to 5:30pm) or email our Registration Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that due to Christmas holidays, our offices and call line will be closed between 24 and 27 December 2022, and 31 December 2022 to 2 January 2023.
