Preparation for clinical site visits

Each student attending the clinical site must be screened for occupational health and have background checks completed. This information is sent to the Occupational Health and Nursing Administration Departments of the hospital the student is visiting. 
Therefore, each student is required to send an official record of: 

  • The date the blood test was taken for; Measles IGG, Mumps IGG, Rubella IGG, Chickenpox IGG and Hepatitis B surface antibody levels/titre. 
  • Confirmation that you have immunity to each of the above.
  • Background check to include criminal / offender clearances (Police Clearance certificate).
  • You will also need to bring a clinical uniform with you.

Guidance on how to submit this information will be provided upon application.

On-line Application Form

International School Payment Information
Applicant universities and individuals will be invoiced and provided with payment method upon receipt of application.

Successful applicants will then need to send us their occupational health and background clearance records. This is a requirement for the clinical site visits. Failure to submit this information one month before the start of the programme will result in the student/s being unable to undertake the clinical site visit. Students can however attend the other aspects of the programme but there are no substitute arrangements for the clinical site visits.

You can also email an electronic version of the forms to curistag@tcd.ie

You can select courses across a range of subject areas, as long as timetabling alignment will allow. You are not restricted to courses only in your major subject. We in the School of Nursing and Midwifery are delighted to be part of the study abroad scheme. We offer a choice of modules, mostly relevant to nursing and midwifery students, but which may also be of interest to students in other professional fields, the sciences and arts and humanities. Some modules do expect the student to have a working knowledge of clinical nursing or midwifery practice.
