PNA Circular to Members re Recruitment and Retention

12th March 2018

To all Members,

We have been advised that the Public Service Pay Commission plan to carry out a survey “Engage to Change” of nurses, from students to Directors of Nursing, in the coming weeks to determine difficulties in relation to the recruitment and retention of nurses.
