Short learning programmes

The Academy for Continuing Nursing Education was established within the School to present Short Learning Programmes. These programmes are accredited. They vary in duration from 1 to 10 days, and in most instances these days are not successive, which makes them more accessible to the working professional. These credits may also be acknowledged for present study requirements, or for studies undertaken in the future (subject to certain conditions).

Many of the short learning programmes are unique and are not offered elsewhere, or they are the first of their kind to be offered at all. Refer to the SLP-booklet and Application form.

For further information on the short learning programmes, please contact Diane Keegan
