DMG Media Ireland is launching The Pulse, a special 64-page magazine dedicated to the work of Ireland’s 78,000 nurses and midwives during the pandemic. It will be on sale for €2 in almost 5,000 retailers across the country from Saturday, March 20, for two weeks. All advertising and revenue from sales will go towards a nursing and midwifery educational fund.
