The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland has advised that if any Nurse or Midwife who does not pay their Annual Retention Fee (ARF) the Board will consider the removal of their name from the Register for failure to pay the Annual Retention Fee in accordance with Section 77(1) of the Nurses and Midwives Act 2011.
The next NMBI Board meeting takes place on the week of Monday 26 March 2018 and the names of those who have not paid their ARF will be forwarded to the Board.
Once a name has been removed from the Register practice as a nurse or midwife in Ireland is not permitted. This includes clinical practice, nursing /midwifery management, education or research.
All nurse and midwife registrants can pay ARF online through My Account and the NMBI Payments Line (1890 200 116) will shut on Friday 23 March 2018 at 5 pm.
