Transition Year Programme 2017

The School of Nursing and Midwifery runs a one-week programme for transition year students each year, taking in around 50 students. Students are selected from a range of schools around the country and to maximise school participation, only one student per school will be accepted onto the programme.

The students will spend two days in a classroom setting in our building on D’Olier Street, where they will learn about the professions of nursing and midwifery from our lecturers and students. In addition, there will be presentations on the services and supports provided for students of Trinity College. A further two days of the programme will be based in our clinical skills labs and teaching rooms based in St James’s Hospital, Dublin 8. The final day of the programme will include a tour of the Book of Kells exhibition.
