The Irish News is reporting that a number of nursing schools have been forced to move online due to an “unexpected and unexpected situation”.
According to the Irish News, the problem has arisen as a result of a new software program being rolled out at the end of September.
According to an Irish news outlet, the software allows a student to use an iPhone and a computer simultaneously.
This means a student who was using their phone at home may have been able to make the appointment with their school online.
However, the system has now been changed to allow the computer to be used in the classroom instead.
This has meant the computer can now be used by students in the same room as the nurse and they will be able to communicate with each other.
It’s understood that this has led to a number more schools having to close for the weekend.
The Irish News said it is understood that a total of 20 schools have had to close due to the software update.
It is also understood that the software was rolled out as part of the Nursing Education Framework which was introduced in 2014.
In a statement to The Irish Press, a spokesperson for the Irish Nursing and Midwifery Council (INMC) said that the changes were “part of a package of changes to ensure that the training and learning process is carried out as efficiently as possible”.
This is due to changes in how the country’s schools are managed, the spokeswoman said.
The spokesperson said the changes “are designed to allow for the continued growth of our sector” and to ensure the best possible training is delivered for students.
However a spokesperson from the Association of National Academies of Nursing (ANNA) said the move had “saved the careers of many students and staff”.
They said the new system “has saved students and their families hundreds of thousands of dollars”.
