ADC - International Section seeks equality

The INMO was asked to liaise with the government to seek equal treatment for members of the International Nurses Section and their families with regards to the cost of college fees.

Delegates at the annual delegate conference mandated the Organisation to engage closely with government agencies and departments to ensure equal treatment with regard to the rights and entitlements of its international members as:

  • Residents and citizens of the State
  • Full or part-time employed nurses and midwives
  • Non-EU nationals with equal social protection
  • Individuals with fair access to higher education in relation to tuition costs and qualification recognition.

A short animated film, which highlighted the struggle of international INMO members to pay non-EU tuition fees for their children, despite them having lived in Ireland for all or most of their lives, was shown to the delegation.

Supporting the motion, one speaker argued that international nurses in Ireland have made a “huge contribution” to healthcare in the country.

She added: “We, as an Organisation, need to acknowledge, and fully support this motion.”

The motion was carried.
