This literature review aims to (a) provide a summary of the research conducted in the Irish nurse/midwifery education field, (b) identify key recommendations from the research reviewed and (c) examine the policy, theory and methodological implications of the research conducted. The electronic databases of CINAHL (EBSCO host 1982–2006) and PubMed (1950–2006) were searched for the relevant literature. Sixty-one studies satisfied the criteria for inclusion which were based on; quality of research design, sampling, data analysis, scientific merit, and authorship (registered nurse/midwife who conducted research in the Republic of Ireland). Findings demonstrated diversity in relation to aims, methods and results highlighting a need to formulate a collaborative research agenda in nurse and midwifery education.
