Registering as a Nurse in Ireland

Unread post by Kunle Emmanuel » Tue Aug 23, 2016 7:46 am

All registered professional nurses can apply to be included on the Irish register of nurses. As long as you meet the requirements and are registered with the appropriate registration Authority in your own country, there should be no reason why you cannot register in Ireland. Please write or fax for an application form to the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland.

I have been doing my research, and so far, Ireland is giving the best offer, especially to nurses with families!!!
I’ll be posting the requirements and the steps that you will have to follow from application to processing the documents that you need.

Honestly, Ireland was not my first choice, but when I knew more about it, I became VERY VERY interested. In Ireland, NO NURSING EXAM is needed (like in the UK) if you do the adaptation program. (Usually it is done by nurses employed by hospitals. Aptitude Test is taken by those who will be working for Nursing Homes)

Also, there is also NO NEED TO STUDY NURSING AGAIN because there are NO BRIDGING programs (like in Australia and New Zealand) which will cost you A LOT OF MONEY!!!

AND, the DEADLY IELTS SCORES requirement is LOWER than those needed in the other countries. (6.5 in Listening; 6.5 in Reading; 7 in Writing and 7 in Speaking). UKVI IELTS NOW ACCEPTED BY NMBI!

While doing the Adaptation Program, a nurse will earn a uniform salary of €1,946.75 per month. Once the nurse has registered with the NMBI, the salary will be based on the salary scale depending on the years of experience. For a nurse with 1 year experience, the starting salary will be €29,497 or about Php 1,474,850 a year; for a nurse with 6 years experience, the starting salary will be €36,137 or Php 1,806,850 a year. The salary increases yearly.

UKVI is not accepted by the NMBI in Ireland. Regular Academic IELTS is what they require.

Once you have the required IELTS scores, you can already start the NMBI application.
The initial application costs 350 euros. Most of the employers will reimburse this amount once you are in Ireland.
The amounts for the whole process will be different from one applicant to another since there are different documents needed.

Interested?
