School of Nursing and Midwifery


The School of Nursing and Midwifery aims to provide leadership in multi-professional healthcare research, education and practice at local, national and international levels.

  • We strongly support the principle of equal access, and encourage all students and staff to achieve their full potential within an open, liberal and facilitative environment.
  • The ethos of the School is one that sees the patient/client as the primary focus.
  • We seek to make a major contribution to evidence-based, high quality health care on the Island of Ireland and abroad, and will achieve this through excellence in the provision of teaching for pre- and post-registration nurses and midwives and in the conduct of world-class research.

The school aims to be known nationally and internationally as an exciting place to work and learn.


Nursing and midwifery practice, rooted in compassion, draws upon extensive knowledge and care experience to provide physical and psychological care of the highest quality. Nurses and midwives will take centre stage in ensuring efficient and effective delivery of accessible, integrated and consumer-driven healthcare, will creatively design health related programming and services and will ensure quality through advocacy, policy-making, service management, education and research.
