As talks take place between health service management and nursing unions in an attempt to avert strike action, The Irish Times would like to hear from nurses working abroad about what can be done to address recruitment and retention difficulties in Ireland.

Why did you leave the Irish health system? Where do you live and work now, and how to pay and conditions compare? What practices and policies could be adopted by the Irish health system to improve conditions for nurses working in Ireland? What would need to change to attract you, or other nurses like you, back to work here?
