Q. Can a Nurse/Midwife be in receipt of the Dual Qualified Scale and a Location Allowance?

A staff nurse can only receive a dual qualified scale or a location allowance, whichever is the greater.  The exceptions to this are staff nurses who were already being paid on the dual qualified scale on October 1, 1996.  In such cases, the value of the location/qualification allowance is €1597 which they receive in addition to their dual qualified scale.
