NMBI Expresses Solidarity with Nurses and Midwives in Ukraine
The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) has expressed its heartfelt solidarity with nurses and midwives in Ukraine following the illegal military invasion of the country by the Russian President.
NMBI is acutely aware of the immense challenges now faced by Ukrainian nurses and midwives due to the casualties caused by the war, missile strikes on medical facilities and the displacement of millions of people – most of them women and children.
NMBI wishes it to be known that the organisation stands in solidarity with our colleagues in Ukraine who are now faced with tasks beyond the normal call of duty. They remain in our thoughts at this time.
As many Ukrainian refugees arrive in Ireland, NMBI is working with a number of stakeholders to ensure that any Ukrainian nurses and midwives who express a wish to work in Irish healthcare settings in the future will be given the opportunity to do so.
