Representing Advanced Nurse
Midwife Practitioners

Our Story

In 2004, a small group of visionaries convened in the pillar room of the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital to address the growing need for Advanced Nurse Midwife Practitioners of all specialties to have a unified voice. The Irish Association of Advanced Nurse Midwife Practitioners [IAANMP] was consequently established to fill that need. Today we represent almost 300 Advanced Nurse Midwife Practitioners from over 30 specialist areas.

The Association

Advanced Nurse Midwife Practitioners strengthen the health care workforce and maximize our health care potential.The IAANMP is committed to working with leaders in the public and private sector to improve health care for all.

The Committee

The IAANMP committee members are all volunteer members who contribute their expertise in order to advance the mission and vision of the association.

The Constitution

The IAANMP is concerned with the promotion and the advancement of nursing knowledge and the dissemination of information concerning Advanced Nurse Midwifery Practice. We aim to empower all our members to advance quality health care through practice, education, advocacy, research and leadership.

Position Statement

Today, there are more than 600 Registered Advanced Nurse Midwife Practitioners practicing across the island of Ireland, strengthening health care access and delivery in nearly every county and every health care setting in the country.
