The Health Minister Leo Varadkar is meeting with the Emergency Department Task Force today.
It was set up to deal with the issue of overcrowding in hospital emergency departments, and the talks have been organised in anticipation of increased demand over the winter months.
Nursing Homes Ireland is calling for delays in nurses' registration to be addressed today.
The group's CEO Tadhg Daly said the problem is causing beds to be closed in nursing homes.
He said: "So we've written to the minister outlining that the issue of nurses' registration needs to be put on the top of the agenda.
"At this point in time there are over 2,300 nurses awaiting registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board, so we are calling on the minister and the department to intervene in that particular logjam to ensure that we can get the appropriate number of nurses tregistered for the entire health service, but more particularly for the nursing home sector."
