Student nurses will be paid for the duration of the Covid-19 crisis.

There are currently 4,000 students working in Irish hospitals.

Health Minister Simon Harris says they will all be offered contracts Healthcare Assistants and will be paid accordingly.

A Healthcare Assistant earns €28,000 a year.

This will allow students to complete their placement in an HCA role and continue to complete their course.

Health Minister Simon Harris has praised them for their work during the current crisis:

“I want to thank our student nurses and midwives for the brilliant work they are doing in this difficult time.

“We need all hands on-deck through this challenging period."
