With our academic partner Trinity College Dublin you may choose to study General Nursing or General and Children’s which enables you to register as a Registered General Nurse and Children’s Nurse on completion of your studies.

Below are some insights into Nurse training at TUH from recent and current Undergraduate Nurses.

Where to begin! Firstly, Tallaght University Hospital is without a doubt a dedicated teaching hospital. Every ward that I’ve been fortunate enough to carry out placement in has been exceptional to date. I’m constantly astounded by the dedication and enthusiasm that innumerable nurses have shown towards me, no matter how much time it took out of their day. Their constant support is probably my biggest motivation day in and day out. The Clinical Place Coordinators are also always there to help – one in particular helped me carry out an entire admission just to make sure I felt confident in them (Apologies again for taking the better part of two hours!). Nursing can be difficult at times, there’s a plethora of challenges to overcome; however, TUH has such wonderful facilities dedicated to students and will do their best to support you throughout your training. Now I know I shouldn’t play favourites, but if you’re struggling to decide on your base hospital, I would highly suggest you choose Tallaght University Hospital – no other hospital can guarantee such a consistently high quality of training.

My decision to study nursing was significantly influenced by an encounter I had with some nurses. Having encountered and observed the high level of care and professionalism displayed by these nurses, I was convinced that nursing was the profession I aspired to. My training in Tallaght University Hospital has been a step in the right direction. The nurses here are highly skilled, very friendly and work to create environments which facilitate learning and development. I have learned that no question is a silly one; and it is only through asking and being facilitated that my confidence as a student nurse has improved. Student nurses are valued as members of the Multidisciplinary Team. Student placement coordinators are outstanding in ensuring that students gain exposure to as many clinical procedures and educational training as possible. I deem it as a privilege to be training in Tallaght University Hospital and on the way to be one good nurse!

Training in Tallaght University Hospital as both a children’s and general nurse has been a challenging yet rewarding experience for me. During my training, I learned to promote optimum health, prevent ill health and provide holistic care to patients across the life span. I found it challenging at times when switching between children’s and general placements in the Hospital. However, the support and guidance provided by the staff nurse made this transition easier. The staff also taught me to integrate theory and practice to provide patient-centred care. Along with being trained in the ward, I also got to train in a variety of specialities within the hospital which facilitated continuous learning and reassured me about the wide range of career options available to me once I am qualified. Training as a nurse in Tallaght University Hospital not only prepared me for my nursing career, it also changed my outlook of life and made me realise the importance of good health.
Kate Jester, Student Nurse

The four years that I have spent training to be a nurse in Tallaght University Hospital have been filled with countless positive experiences, enabling me to grow to be a confident and competent healthcare professional. Throughout my training, Tallaght University Hospital has allowed me to develop my communication, interpersonal and especially my clinical nursing skills. The support and guidance from staff is incredible from the entire Multidisciplinary Team and the Clinical Placement Co-ordinators. The nursing staff are eager to teach and encourage students to participate in all learning opportunities. During my internship especially, I felt that the staff embraced us students as part of their team, making work an enjoyable place to be. Getting to work in so many different departments of the hospital including the wards and specialist areas has provided me with a vast range of knowledge and new skills. Training in this hospital has enabled me to feel confident and greatly prepared to begin my nursing career.
