Nursing & Health Studies Slope


Welcome to our Nursing & Health Studies department

The work of a healthcare professional is diverse, challenging and very rewarding providing care to a range of vulnerable individuals. Healthcare is changing in Ireland, with the HSE currently restructuring the primary care provision throughout the country with numerous opportunities in place for individuals hoping to work in a caring profession. 

We deliver a range of relevant training courses across full, part-time and blended learning to equip individuals with the necessary skills and knowledge to deliver person-centered, individualised care in across a number of settings.   

Learners enrol on health courses at Portobello Institute with multiple goals in mind. Many students commit to nursing studies with a view to applying for further education and will continue on to complete a degree in nursing. Others complete our health courses with a goal to enter straight into employment at entry level across healthcare in Speech and Language Therapy Assistant, Occupational Therapy Assistant and Physiotherapy Assistant.   

We are delighted to share success story from happy graduate Nicole Bolger on reaching their ultimate goal, "Thanks to completing the nursing course at Portobello Institute I was accepted onto Children’s and General Nursing Level 8 in UCD." Read her full story.
