NMBI’s Director of Registration has praised the 76,500 nurses and midwives who have renewed their registration for 2022.
More than 97.2 per cent of registrants have renewed for this year. It is the second year in which registrants have renewed online at MyNMBI.ie.
At the end of 2021, there were 82,217 nurses and midwives on the Register, the largest number ever.
Last year also saw a record number of new registrants, with 5,008 added by the end of December. This included 1,530 Irish applicants, 3,093 from outside the EU and 385 from the EU.
“We had extensive engagement with stakeholders and registrants following the launch of the online registration system for the 2021 annual renewal,” said Ray Healy, the Director of Registration at NMBI.
“Following that review, NMBI introduced an extensive range of system improvements aimed at helping the user experience. We believe the changes we introduced has helped make this year’s annual renewal easier for registrants.
“I want to thank all stakeholders for their engagement with NMBI on the online renewal process and I also wish to thank all our registrants who engaged with MyNMBI for this year’s renewal.”
