What will I learn?

The School of Nursing and Midwifery was established in 1996 at a time of great change in nursing education in Ireland. Subsequently a rapid expansion followed to a point where postgraduate programmes are offered catering for many branches of nursing and midwifery as well as other Healthcare professions. The School has a definite research profile and has formed many national and international links.

Research Programmes

The School has a growing record of attracting research funding in various health care areas. Research interest groups are working in collaboration with international experts in the areas of cardiovascular, oncology-palliative care, child health care, midwifery-led care, generic and intellectual disability, autism, health care management, mental illness and adult education issues. This work has created opportunities for full-time research posts.

In partnership with Queen’s University Belfast, staff have assisted the School of Nursing in Jordan University of Science and Technology to develop two existing M.Sc. programmes and to institute a third. This work is funded by an EU TEMPUS grant. Staff are also working with universities in five countries including Charles and Pardubice Universities in the Czech Republic, Turku and Stadia Polytechnics in Finland, Murcia University in Spain, and Dundee and Paisley Universities in Scotland on a study investigating the development of ethical reasoning in student nurses as a care skill. The School has also been granted support by the Leonardo Da Vinci Programme for an exchange project aiming at exploring educational issues relating to the training of professionals to care for people with intellectual disability with Akershus University College in Norway.

This course deals with the Nursing and Midwifery program (Doctoral) in research.
