The role of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) is the promotion of high standards of professional education, training and practice and professional conduct among nurses and midwives thus ensuring the protection of the public.
The concern of NMBI in the protection of the public acknowledges the issue of quality in education, actual practice of nurses and midwives and the need for practice to be grounded in appropriate current evidence. NMBI embraces opportunities to develop, extend and strengthen the principle of partnership with all parties to the educational experience while maintaining its statutory independence. The Board believes that this partnership supports the principle of self-regulation being a privilege to the profession.
Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics
The new Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics was published by NMBI in October 2014 and is effective from 10 December 2014. This is an important development for the professions of nursing and midwifery.
