NMBI Inspection Team Visits Donegal and Sligo


A team of inspectors from NMBI visited a number of clinical and academic settings in Donegal and Sligo at the end of last month.

The Letterkenny IT (LyIT) site inspection commenced virtually on Friday, 25 March. The site inspection was the first time that NMBI had aligned our professional review with a college’s academic review.

The clinical site inspections commenced on Monday, 28 March and concluded on campus in LyIT on Thursday, 31 March, which marked the 20th anniversary of the commencement of the nursing undergraduate programme in the department.

This also marked the final day before LyIT became part of the Atlantic Technological University (ATU), representing another milestone in the education of nursing. The NMBI team congratulated students and staff on the achievements.
