Transition Year Programme 2020
The School of Nursing and Midwifery runs a one-week programme for transition year students, taking in 50 students each year. 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 be a reflection on the week and a tour of the Trinity College campus (weather permitting).
To maximise school participation, only one student per school will be accepted onto the programme in the first round of offers. Students who do not secure a place in the first round will be placed on a waiting list. Should a student who has been offered a place withdraw from the programme, then their place will be offered to those on the waiting list.

The form itself takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.
