Welcome to the School of Nursing and Midwifery

Welcome to the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Trinity College Dublin, the largest and leading School of Nursing and Midwifery in the country. We were delighted recently to be ranked the number one School for Nursing in Ireland and ranked 36th in the world by the QS international rankings system. To achieve such a ranking, well within the top 50 internationally was a testament to the staff's commitment to quality for all of our students, researchers and visitors within the education and research environment. I hope you find the information on the education programmes, research activities, practice innovations and community initiatives undertaken by staff within the School informative, exciting and challenging.

We also had the pleasure recently of announcing our School's Strategic Plan, within which we have a adopted an over-arching goal to be, 'A School of Global Consequence'. We are placing an emphasis on the student and academic experience across our under-graduate, post-graduate, international, research, practice and community engagement roles.

Please do take time to read through the website and you will understand why the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Trinity College Dublin has developed a national and international reputation for offering quality education programmes and for undertaking innovative, client-centred research that is shaping the health care agenda in Ireland and beyond.

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 multidisciplinary team within the School and our partner services are committed to providing you with an exceptional clinical and theoretical educational experience within a nurturing environment. When you study at the Trinity College School of Nursing and Midwifery you will develop the skills and knowledge to meet the challenges and complexities of working and practicing in the health care service of the future, as well as the innovative skills and leadership abilities required to influence future policy and service provision.
