Terms and Conditions

Conditions of membership

Membership is open to all nurses and midwives across the public and private sectors. The INMO is governed by the Rules of the Organisation.  

All applications are subject to ratification by the INMO Executive Council. Services thereafter are provided in accordance with the rules of the organisation and at the discretion of the Executive Council.   

Please note that the INMO will not provide representation to a nurse/midwife in respect of incidents which have occurred or issues which have arisen prior to the application for membership and Executive Council ratification. Further, the right of representation shall terminate on a nurse/midwife ceasing to be a member of the INMO.  

Membership is always subject to the payment of the appropriate annual membership fee, as determined by the Annual Delegate Conference.  

Membership of the Organisation may be cancelled at any time by contacting the INMO Membership Department, and cancellation of membership leads to the cessation of all services related to membership.

Please note no VAT is applicable to the payment of membership fees to the INMO.

  • Salary deductions (not available at every work location) 
  • Monthly standing bankers order

A person may cancel their membership application within that period by notifying the Membership Department in the INMO Headquarters. A full refund of any payment made upon application will be made within 14 days.

Where a person purchases an educational course or conference place online, they have a 14-day period within which to change their mind, without having to give any reason for the change of mind. A person may cancel their purchase by contacting INMO Professional in the INMO Headquarters. A full refund of any payment made will be made within 14 days.
