Application Forms for NMBI Approval for Post-Registration Courses Announced
New and updated application forms for Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) approval for post-registration courses have been released.
Education Bodies (EBs) and QQI accredited Centres of Nursing & Midwifery Education submit programmes of education to NMBI for approval.
Post registration programmes of education are classified as either a Major award-type,which represents a significant volume of learning outcomes, or Minor award-type which will be part of the learning outcomes associated with one or more major award-types at a given level in the Framework of Qualifications.
Minor awards may be combined with other learning outcomes towards a major or special purpose award. Programmes are considered for approval by the Education, Training and Standards Committee. Programmes must be submitted to the Professional Standards and Education Department in NMBI eight weeks prior to the meeting of the Education, Training and Standards Committee.
Both have been reviewed and updated on the website to ensure that the applications for approval and/or reapproval can be processed in a timely manner.
