BACHELOR OF SCIENCE (HONOURS) IN GENERAL NURSING
Why Study General Nursing?
General nursing involves caring for people of all ages both in hospital and community settings. It incorporates theory, practice and a combination of theory and practice modules related to nursing. The programme combines classroom teaching and practical nursing placements in a variety of clinical and non-clinical settings throughout the Mayo/Roscommon/Galway region. On occasion, students may be on placement outside of these areas.
Students will undertake a 36-week paid internship in their final year of study, during which they will gain clinical experience as well as making a significant contribution to service. Weekly protected reflective time for students is a built-in component of this experience. Graduates are entitled to entry to the Professional Register of General Nurses maintained by An Bord Altranais.
