About us

The School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity College Dublin, is the largest School of Nursing and Midwifery in Ireland with over 80 academic staff and over 200 postgraduate and research students.

We are one of only two schools of Nursing and Midwifery in Ireland that have undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in all Nursing disciplines (Children's, General, Intellectual Disability, and Psychiatric nursing) and in Midwifery.

The staff in the School of Nursing and Midwifery are energetic and innovative academics and researchers and administrators with established strengths in the prevention and management of chronic illness, woman and child health, and promoting equality for marginalised groups. Postgraduate and undergraduate students have access to staff from a wide range of professional backgrounds.

On average, the School of Nursing and Midwifery graduates approximately 200 Nurses and 60 Midwives per year, and graduates of the School are in senior management and advanced clinical practice positions nationally and internationally.

The School is proud to be actively conducting and promoting our research expertise which is increasingly recognised in the areas of ageing, dementia, women's and childrens health, mental health, cardiovascular disease, intellectual disability, caregiving, end of life and palliative care and substance abuse.

Our mission is to provide leadership in multi-professional healthcare research, education and practice at local, national and international levels.

The School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity College Dublin, is located at 24 D’Olier Street, Dublin 2, which is a two minute stroll from the main TCD campus.
