NMBI Board Approves Removals from the Register
The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI)’s annual renewal portal for 2022 closed on Monday, 21 March.
Removal notices were issued on Thursday, 24 March 2022 to people who were registered with NMBI in 2021 but who did not renew for 2022 or who did not voluntarily remove from the Register.
The removal process was approved by the Board under Section 77 of the Nurses and Midwives Act 2011 at its meeting on Wednesday, 23 March 2022.
Renewal notices were issued to registrants on 25 October 2021 and a Reminder Notice was issued on 17 January 2022.
As the Regulator, NMBI is also sending notifications of removals to all employers, the Minister for Health and the HSE. It is an offence to practise nursing or midwifery if your name is not on the Register.
Anyone wishing to restore their name to the Register for 2022 must pay a restoration fee of €250 in addition to the €100 Annual Renewal Fee.
