About Nursing: General/Psychiatric/Intellectual Disability at Trinity College Dublin

Is this the right course for you?

You will need to have a keen interest in healthcare, be capable of working in a team, and have a caring and understanding personality and outlook to enjoy working as a nurse.

Course content

This course will give you the knowledge, skills, attitude and professional values necessary to provide high quality, competent and caring nursing practice in the discipline of nursing you choose to follow. The three main themes of the course are:

  • Person and community centred holistic care

  • Personal and interpersonal skills

  • Professional nursing studies

The biological, behavioural and social sciences are incorporated within the relevant themes. Some contact under each of the themes is common to all three nursing disciplines and the remainder is specific to your chosen discipline.
There are two components to the nursing degree course – a theoretical component and a clinical component. The theoretical component of the course will be taught on the Trinity campus, School of Nursing & Midwifery Building, D’Olier Street or in the School’s teaching facilities in St James’s Hospital or AMNCH, Tallaght.

Teaching strategies

Teaching and learning strategies will include lectures, tutorials and group work. A minimum of 95% attendance is required at formal lectures and tutorials on programmes leading to registration in a division of the Nurses' Register. Student attendance at theory classes will be monitored.

Assessment strategies

The learning outcomes of the programme will be integrated fully into the assessment strategy at all levels and will include assessments such as examinations, assignments and practical skills assessment.
