Abstract:
Nursing and Midwifery Education in Ireland
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:June, 2001

P.I. Institution Name:Trinity College Dublin
Title:Faculty of Health
Nursing education in Ireland is undergoing a period of great change. Over a 4-year period, 1994-1998, the traditional ‘apprenticeship’ training ceased and a 3-year Diploma in Nursing programme has been developed in partnership between the hospitals and third-level institutions. In 2002, pre-registration education for general, psychiatric and mental handicap nursing will become a 4-year degree course, based in the third-level institutions. The Nursing Education Forum, set up in response to a recommendation from the Commission on Nursing Report (1998), has published guidelines and recommendations as to the structure, content and delivery of this programme, which will be described. Midwifery education in Ireland has been based on the apprenticeship model since 1959. In June 2000, a pilot ‘direct entry’ 3-year Diploma in Midwifery programme commenced in partnership between one University and two linked maternity hospitals. Following successful evaluation this will change to a 4-year degree course after 2002. An overall view of the college/university structure in Ireland will be presented and the philosophy and programmes offered will be discussed. The School’s research strategy will be outlined and opportunities for educational exchange and research networking will be presented.
