Dr Ray Healy
Presentation at Migrant Nurses Ireland Conference


Last month, our Director of Registration, Dr Ray Healy, presented at the Migrant Nurses Ireland Conference in the Richmond Education and Event Centre.

The annual event brought migrant nurses together to gain insights into Irish health and celebrate the contributions of migrant nurses in Ireland.

Dr Healy presented on the role of NMBI and the improvements we have made to the processing of overseas applications to join the Register of Nurses and Midwives in the last year. During 2022, NMBI received 7,158 applications for recognition or registration from candidates who qualified outside of Ireland.

NMBI continues to engage with Migrant Nurses Ireland to ensure we can continuously improve the service we provide.
