Overseas Nurses Registration in Ireland:How to Become a Registered Nurse in Irel by Idowu Olabode : December 25, 2015, 02:47:44 AM
All you need to know about nmbi registration
The Republic of Ireland is a country in Europe with Dublin as the capital. This is a guide produced by Nursesarena.com for overseas nurses who are seeking registration with the Ireland nursing board. To work as a foreign trained nurse in Ireland, you need to follow these 3 major processes vizly;
1.   Register as a nurse with Irish Nursing Board-An Bord Altranais
2.   Apply for a job
3.   Apply for your employment permit

Registration As a Nurse With An Bord Altranais

The Irish nursing board ,An Bord Altranais/NMBI is responsible for the regulation of nursing education and practices in Ireland. For nurses who had their initial nursing education outside Ireland/EU member countries, your application for registration falls under Group 3; this application guide is for such people. The Irish nursing board has the following categories of registrations:
-Registered General Nurse
-Registered Midwife
-Registered Children’s Nurse
-Registered Psychiatric Nurse
-Registered Intellectual Disability Nurse
-Registered Public Health Nurse
-Registered Nurse Tutor
-Registered Nurse Prescriber
-Registered Advanced Nurse Practitioner
-Registered Advanced Midwife Practitioner


Note: To apply for registration in a division of the Register you must be educated and trained in that division. For example, if you trained as a general nurse only, but have gained considerable experience working as a children’s nurse in your country, you will not be eligible to register as a children’s nurse with NMBI. Before you start the application process, it is very important to know what application group you belong to.

Registration Requirements

To be eligible to apply for registration, you must:
• Hold a current registration, or licence without restriction, with the competent authority in the country in which you qualified or have been practising
• Have practised as a nurse or midwife in the last five years
• Meet our language competence requirements i.e “passed” IELTS.
• Have completed extra courses leading to registration as a first level nurse, if you hold the following qualifications: state enrolled nurse, state certified nurse, licensed practical nurse, vocational nurse,nurse’s aide, and an associate degree (United States)

Hi. My friend is an ex-saudi but can't provide certificate of good standing. He worked in Saudi from 2010-2015. But he has a recent hospital experience from 2015-2016 in the Philippines.  Does he still need to provide good standing from Saudi or just from the Philippines? ??
