Welcome to Research at the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity College Dublin

The School of Nursing and Midwifery in Trinity College was established in 1996 and is now a leading force in national and international healthcare research. Innovation is central to our mission in research and education. Through intellectual inquiry and clinical practice, our staff and students strive to advance nursing and midwifery practice and improve healthcare across the lifespan in our communities, both nationally and internationally.

This work takes place on the School’s City Centre campus and across the metropolitan area, the Dublin Midlands Hospital Group, and at our affiliated hospitals and research centres.

The School is ranked 42nd in the World in the QS World University Subject Rankings 2022. Our academic staff are renowned researchers, expert practitioners and experienced mentors. They are, individually and collectively, leading experts in their fields, dedicated to the development of the next generation of nurses and midwives through advancing nursing and midwifery knowledge.

As the largest school in one of the world's leading research-intensive universities, our researchers have developed international collaborations and have been awarded funding for large scale projects from national and international funding bodies such as the Health Research Board, Health Service Executive, EU and COST.

We remain committed to improving health globally through providing first rate evidence-based education programmes focussed on generating knowledge that nurses and midwives will need to transform healthcare towards people-centred health systems.
