Nursing Studies Blended Learning

The Nursing course is designed as a programme of preparatory study to enter a degree course in Nursing Studies. Students undertaking this course can also apply for training positions in General Nursing, Psychiatric Nursing, Intellectual Disability Nursing and Children's Nursing.

Nurses look after people who are unwell or who, for some reason, need special care. They provide care and advice for patients, and work in a variety of settings. This course introduces students to the caring role of the nurse and emphasis's the importance of interpersonal communication. It equips them with the skills and knowledge to care for patients in a safe and hygienic environment.

Students will learn the basic principles of infection control and are taught to apply standard precautions in relation to infection control. They will learn the structure and function of the human body and gain an understanding of the interrelationship between the systems of the body. They study the levels of personal development to understand the concepts of mental age and chronological age in order to be able to relate to people at a level appropriate to their needs.

Thanks to the nursing course I was accepted onto Children’s and General Nursing Level 8 in UCD.

I didn’t get sufficient points to achieve the higher points in CAO for Nursing. However, I felt very passionate about becoming a nurse and would do anything to make this happen.Full story
