IRNN Survey on Research Nurses/ Midwives

The role of the IRNN is to provide support and act as a resource for research nurses and midwives in Ireland.

We have sent an email inviting all nurses/midwives in Ireland (both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland) who are employed as research staff to complete an anonymised questionnaire on SurveyMonkey. The aim of this questionnaire is to collect some baseline information on the qualifications of research nurses/midwives, what roles they are performing and the types of employment contracts offered to research nurses/midwives. The information provided to us will help the IRNN to continue, and achieve, more supports and resources for nurses and midwives, who undertake research.

Please email us at [email protected] if you did not get the survey and we will forward the questionnaire to you. This survey is open to all research nurses/ midwives.


IRNN was established in 2008 to support the educational and professional needs of Clinical Research Nurses in Ireland. Use these pages to learn about our network, view our newsletter, and learn about upcoming events.


#WhyWeDoResearch is a twitter campaign aimed at raising research awareness for healthcare professionals, patients and public.
