Report of The Commission on Nursing

Report of The Commission on Nursing ImageNursing and midwifery have been one of the cornerstones of the modern Irish health service. The quality of care and public satisfaction with the health service is often related to the quality of the nursing service. Irish nurses not only enjoy the confidence of patients and clients of the health service but have an international reputation for their professionalism and the excellence of their care. However, the health services are in a state of constant and rapid development in response to technological, social and economic changes both domestically and internationally.


The Commission is recommending a new framework which will give a secure basis for the further professional development of nursing and midwifery in the context of  anticipated changes in the health services, their organisation and delivery.
