About Us

Welcome to the School of Nursing and Midwifery

Welcome to the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Trinity College Dublin. As the leading school of Nursing and Midwifery in Ireland we are committed to the provision of a first rate educational experience for the high quality students that we serve. Our vision is to be the best school possible for Nursing and Midwifery education and research. We aim to position our nurse and midwife graduates for work at the forefront of cutting edge developments in modern health care building upon a foundation of core values for nursing and midwifery i.e. care, compassion and competence. Our nurse and midwife graduates enjoy a worldwide reputation for excellence and are highly employable undertaking diverse roles at all levels within health systems both nationally and internationally.

Trinity College Dublin is closely aligned with several partner healthcare organisations including large academic teaching hospitals, regional hospitals, maternity hospitals, children’s’ hospitals, mental health services, and a wide range of community health and social care services. We are the linked university to the Dublin Midlands Hospital Groups- a network of hospitals including St. James Hospital, Tallaght Hospital, Naas General Hospital, Midland Regional Hospital Portlaoise, Midland Regional Hospital Tullamore, Coombe Women and Infants University Hospital and the St. Luke’s Radiation Oncology Network.

We are ranked 26th in the world by the QS international rankings system. A review of our website will demonstrate why we developed a national and international reputation for undertaking innovative and world class research that is positively impacting the quality of the health care experience and delivery in Ireland and beyond.

We are one of only two schools of Nursing and Midwifery in Ireland that provide 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 health service partners 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.

The School's Strategic Plan for the next number of years seeks to continually re-invigorate the student and academic experience across our undergraduate, postgraduate, international, research, practice and community engagement roles.
