The Graduate Diploma in Children’s Cancer Nursing is aimed at advancing the registered children’s nurse’s (RCN) repertoire of knowledge and skills for professional practice in the care of children with cancer. This Graduate Diploma is particularly aimed at preparing the nurse to assume the role of nurse specialist caring for children with cancer. As the programme is particularly aimed at preparing nurses to assume the role of cancer nurse specialist, many graduates eventually take up CNS positions and some may undertake further study required for the role of ANP. Many graduates also proceed to assume CNM/Educational/Clinical Facilitator roles.

Be entered onto the appropriate division of the Nurses Register maintained by An Bord Altranais (be registered as an RCN) Have at least one year’s experience in children’s cancer nursing at time of attending the first day of class in Semester 1 Candidates must be employed in a children’s oncology unit or related cancer care setting prior to commencing the course and for the duration of the course
