  • 2018 marks Valerie Small’s retirement from the Nursing Profession, which includes over twenty years in Advanced Practice in Ireland. Valerie is an innovative visionary leader. In 1996 St. James’s Hospital took the initiative and set up a pilot study for the development of the first Advanced nurse practitioner role in Emergency. In 2002, Valerie became the first accreditated Advanced Nurse Practitioner in Ireland. This provided the impetus for the development of ANP / AMP posts in other specialised areas.
    During the establishment of the Advanced Nurse Practitioner Services there were many challenges and barriers to overcome. For Valerie, these were met with a touch of class and intelligence by a lady with a vision “ there is no challenge without change” (Small, 2017). It must be said that this change in healthcare structure was dynamically positive and changed the landscape of nursing and allowed for positive patient experiences. This was largely due to Valerie’s passion drive and determination to provide the best possible patient service and often times having a selfless approach for the betterment of others – be it a colleague or a patient.

    In 2004 the Irish Association of Advanced Nurse/Midwife Practitioners (IAANMP) service was formed and currently in Ireland there are over 240 Advanced Nurse Practitioners in over 30 different specialities.

    On behalf of the IAANMP and all our members we would sincerely like to thank Valerie for her contribution to Advanced Nursing Practice over the last twenty years, it is safe to say the organisation would not be where it is today but for your contribution. It is with a heavy heart that we say to enjoy your retirement and you will be greatly missed.

About the IAANMP

In 2004, a small group of visionaries convened in the pillar room of the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital to address the growing need for Advanced Nurse Midwife Practitioners  of all specialties to have a unified voice.

Today we represent over 240 Advanced Nurse Midwife Practitioners from over 30 specialist areas.
