    • to give guidance to the profession;
    • to manage the Nursing Careers Centre, which was set up in 1998 to facilitate a centralised system of processing and selection of applicants wishing to enter nursing; promote and market nursing as a career; provide careers information to registered nurses and midwives. http://www.nursingboard.ie/en/role_of_board.aspx (accessed on 25.11.2013)

    The Irish health care system is a socialised, universal public system and is governed by the Health Act 2004 whichwasestablished a new body to govern the national health service in the Republic of Ireland, the Health Service Executive.

    All persons resident in the Ireland are entitled to receive health care through the public health care system, which is managed by the Health Service Executive and funded by general taxation. A person may be required to pay a subsidised fee for certain health care received; this depends on income, age, illness or disability. All child health and maternity services are provided free of charge as is emergency care.

    Everyone living in the country, and visitors to Ireland who hold a European Health Insurance card, are entitled to free maintenance and treatment in public beds in Health Service Executive and voluntary hospitals. Out-patient services are also provided for free. However some people may have to pay subsidised hospital charges.
