Welcome to Northern Ireland

Welcome from Professor Charlotte McArdle, Chief Nursing Officer

As the Chief Nursing Officer for Northern Ireland, I would like to encourage you to come to work in Northern Ireland and become a valued member of our nursing team.

In Northern Ireland, we are proud of our nursing heritage and have a long tradition of training outstanding nurses who are highly esteemed by our local population, and the world over.

Northern Ireland nurses are at the forefront of innovation, safety and quality initiatives, and developing professional, person centered practice to enhance the experience and improve outcomes for the patients and clients we care for.

You will find working as a nurse in Northern Ireland to be very enjoyable and rewarding. It will be a satisfying experience which offers great opportunities for developing your professional practice in a range of areas and specialties. The opportunities to develop your personal interests and become a valued member of our society are endless. Many of our nurses work outside hospital settings and have become integral parts of the local communities they work in.

I would strongly encourage you to come and join us in an environment where you will find diversity of practice, challenge, growth, teamwork and support for your nursing career.
Nursing is a wonderful profession and I look forward to welcoming you to continue your nursing career in Northern Ireland.
