About Us

The inaugural meeting of The Irish Association of Advanced Nurse and Midwife practitioners was held in the Pillar Room of the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital in March 2004. The first conference entitled “Advanced Practice Leads the Way: A Vision for the Future” and the first annual general meeting, were both held on the 13th of March 2008. The association was established to provide a support network to all those involved directly or indirectly in advanced nurse and midwife practice. Cognisant of the fact that advanced practice cannot occur in a vacuum it also welcomes supporters of this new role, such as nurse managers and educators.
