Description:
The majority of the nurses surveyed were found to come from rural areas. Most nurses are quite young; only 29% of them are over 40 years of age. Because of the trend for nurses to continue working after marriage, it is likely that the numbers in the older age groups will increase. This may mean a reduced demand for trainee nurses. At present, just over one-quarter of nurses are married. The educational level of nurses reflects the recent raising of the minimum educational requirements for entry to nursing to the leaving certificate level. Almost three-quarters of nurses have at least a leaving certificate.
