NMBI Survey for Nurses and Midwives: Your feedback is needed

NMBI is putting in place a new Customer Charter. It will outline the nature and quality of service that you as a registered nurse or midwife can expect from your nursing and midwifery regulator.


Protecting the public and the integrity of the professions of nursing and midwifery is NMBI’s core mission. We are looking for ways to improve, and promote the highest standards of education, training, and professional conduct for nurses and midwives.


We would like to invite you to take part in an anonymous survey specifically for registered nurses and midwives. It should take approximately five minutes to complete. Your opinion is important to us and we would greatly appreciate your participation.


Please circulate to your colleagues and networks and encourage them to participate also.
