Nursing students can now apply for jobs in nursing.
However, some employers have been reluctant to hire students who are on leave.
What are the rules for students who want to work in nursing?
You need to be on leave of absence for at least three months to start nursing training.
You must have completed your nursing education and you need to have passed a practical examination to qualify.
You have to pass the same examinations for the NUS.
You can apply for your job by filling out an application form, making a donation or applying through the National Nursing and Midwifery Students Association.
What do you need?
You must be registered as a nursing student at the NUIS, the union that represents the NURS, but there is no minimum age requirement.
NURSE and MEMBER are registered nurses who must be working on the day you apply.
You need a minimum of five years of experience as a nurse or midwife.
You also need to pass a practical and oral examination.
NUS members are required to complete the NUP, a national register of registered nurses, before they can apply.
How long does it take?
NURSTREET and NURTSYNC are the two national registers for registered nurses.
You will have to complete an application to become a nurse at the National Nurse Training Centre, a two-week training centre.
The application form is available at the centre or you can visit the NNTC website.
You’ll also have to have your NURD number.
What does it cost?
A minimum of $400 for an application and $200 for a physical.
You may also need some training and testing.
Nursery assistants are generally paid less than those in other fields.
The National Nurse Association says the cost for NUS registered nurses is $30,000 a year, while other organisations have paid around $20,000.
How many nurses do you want?
It depends on the job you want, but NURSSN has an official recruitment plan.
Some nurses will be working with families, while others may be working in nursing homes or hospitals.
The NURSA recruitment plan has a range of positions, from nurses to counsellors and others.
You might want to apply for a position at a nursing home, as they have more nursing students.
The RNs and nurses at the centres that offer nursing training can also train you.
Some employers are also keen to train nursing students, as the RNs at the Centre of Excellence for Nursing Education have a strong nursing background.
NUIST is a national union that offers training in nursing, health and social work to NURDSYNC members.
NUNSE is a union that organises nursing and midwiferies education courses for students.
You won’t have to pay fees to attend courses, as NUISS is the national union for nursing.
There are a number of other unions offering nursing and nursing education courses, such as the NIRSSN, NUNSYNC, NURNSYCP and NUITN.
NUTS is a trade union for registered nurse assistants and nursing students at the Royal Dublin Hospitals.
It’s also the national organiser for the Nursing Education Scheme at the University of Ulster.
NIRTSYNN is the National Nurses and Midwives Association.
It is also the National Nursing and Midwife’s Association.
A NURSEC, a union for RNs in the public service, has a training plan for nursing students that ranges from a four-week basic course to a six-week advanced course.
What if I’m a student from overseas?
You’ll need to apply through the NUNS, the national registered nurses’ union.
You should apply for the same course if you’re not working full time and have been on leave for three months.
What happens to my registration when I leave?
You will need to register for a new nursing course to continue working, but you will not be able to work as a registered nurse.
You are also not entitled to a nursing education certificate if you’ve left nursing school.
You cannot work in any other field of education, including as a doctor or nurse.
How do I find a nursing job?
You can find a job online or through an online job search site, such, CareerBuilder.
You could also look for an RN position through the Irish Times, which is an online service from the Irish newspaper.

You’re able to apply directly for a role at the UK RNs’ Centre for Nursing and Primary Care.
You don’t have a register and can apply directly through the union.
The Royal Dublin NHS Foundation Trust, which runs the centres, also has an application process.

The RN pays about €12,000 in wages per year, including overtime, and has to pay for health insurance
