NEW CEO appointed to NMBI

Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) announces new CEO

04/06/2019

NMBI is delighted to announce that Sheila McClelland has been appointed Interim Chief Executive Officer, for the nursing and midwifery regulator, effective from 24 June 2019. 

 Sheila McClelland has an extensive track record in public service, strategic governance reform and senior management.

 Speaking on her announcement, Sheila McClelland said: “I look forward to taking up this role. I’m very conscious that public bodies are facing very real and pressing expectations; the need for responsiveness and efficiency, customer service and good governance. In addition, as the largest regulator in health with over 70,000 registered nurses and midwives, NMBI can play an increasingly important leadership role in the regulation and healthcare sectors in Ireland. I look forward to starting this work and engaging with NMBI staff, the Board and stakeholders in the coming weeks and months.”

 The President of NMBI, Essene Cassidy said: “We are very lucky to have Sheila McClelland joining us. She is a CEO with the expertise and experience to deliver our challenging reform agenda. She joins us at a pivotal stage for our new registrant system, which we hope will drive improvements in how we perform our functions. As a regulator, we must be fit-for-purpose and supportive of nurses and midwives across Ireland as they perform their vital work in the healthcare setting on a daily basis.” 
Sheila McClelland replaces NMBI’s Director of Midwifery, Dawn Johnston, who has carried out the functions of the Chief Executive Officer during the interim period. NMBI would like to sincerely thank Dawn Johnston for ensuring NMBI continued to operate seamlessly during this time.
