NMBI has approved a revised policy for registration as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) and Advanced Midwife Practitioner (AMP).
There are now two paths to register as an ANP/AMP, and these have been operational since 1 September 2019.
Please identify the path that applies to you, and apply using the Advanced Practice Registration Form, taking care to ensure all sections are complete.
All applicants who successfully complete the NMBI approved Masters of Science in Nursing (Advanced Practice Nursing) programme may apply for registration as an ANP, in the same way as a nurse who has obtained any other registerable post-graduate qualification.
Nurses and midwives who have attained the NMBI competencies and capabilities of advanced practice through a developmental pathway can apply to be recognised as an ANP/AMP. This policy is in line with the principles of the “Policy on the Development of Graduate to Advanced Nursing and Midwifery Practice” (Department of Health, 2019).
Applications will then be reviewed against the criteria and standards of NMBI for advanced practice on a case-by-case basis. Applicants must meet NMBI standards for registration to have their name placed on the Advanced Practice Division of the Register.
