Nursing Now Ireland was launched in 2019 at an event hosted by the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) at the Richmond Education and Event Centre in Dublin. Nursing leaders and other high-level stakeholders from the world of public health gathered to present Nursing Now Ireland and discuss the importance of nursing.
Dame Christine Beasley, member of the global Nursing Now Campaign Board, welcomed Ireland to the Nursing Now movement, and presented an overview of the goals of the Nursing Now campaign. Other speakers called for national and global recognition of nurses’ contribution to healthcare and gender equality.
