We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The School of Nursing and Midwifery was established in 1996 at a time of great change in nursing education in Ireland. Subsequently a rapid expansion followed to a point where postgraduate programmes are offered in almost all branches of nursing and midwifery. The area has a definite research profile and has formed many national and international links.
The School has a growing record of attracting research funding in various health care areas. Research interest groups in conjunction with international experts are working in the areas of cardiovascular, oncology-palliative care, child health care, midwifery-led care, generic and intellectual disability, autism, health care management, mental illness and adult education issues. There are opportunities for full-time research posts.
In addition to the research interest groups, the research interests of the staff include the physiology of childbirth, cardiac rehabilitation, midwifery student education, self-esteem and assertiveness in nursing and midwifery students, clinicians’ experiences of breaking bad news, palliative care, leadership effectiveness in nursing, quality in education, sociology of development, sociology of health, sociology of medical knowledge and medical technologies, gender and health (especially men’s health), gender and reproductive healthcare, curriculum evaluation, assessment strategies for clinical competence, quality indicators in education, the effect of cold on brown adipose tissue metabolism, fitness testing for athletes, spirituality in nursing care, relationships between student and research supervisor at Masters level, the long-term psychosocial effects of a diagnosis of cancer on the child and family, and the sociology of mental illness and mental health in Ireland.
In partnership with Queen’s University Belfast, the staff have assisted the School of Nursing in Jordan University of Science and Technology to develop two existing M.Sc. programmes and to institute a third. This work is funded by an EU TEMPUS grant. Staff are also working with universities in five countries including Charles and Pardubice Universities in the Czech Republic, Turku and Stadia Polytechnics in Finland; Murcia University in Spain, and Dundee and Paisley Universities in Scotland on a study investigating the development of ethical reasoning in student nurses as a care skill. The School has also been granted support by the Leonardo Da Vinci Programme for an exchange project aiming at exploring educational issues relating to the training of professionals to care for people with intellectual disability with Akershus University College in Norway.
Furthermore, an important study, involving several EU countries, is in preparation, and is being submitted for EU FP7 funding.
