Why Study General Nursing at UL?
General nursing is a broad area of practice and involves caring for people with acute and long-term illness in hospital and community settings. General nursing provides a person-centered holistic approach to care, respecting each individual’s uniqueness and dignity. Registered General Nurses (RGNs) work collaboratively and in partnership with patients, their families/carers, the wider community and other health professionals in providing a proactive, evidence-based quality holistic service. The BSc Nursing (General) programme is designed to provide students with the understanding, knowledge, skills and attitudes required to deliver compassionate care that is responsive to the needs of individuals within evolving healthcare settings.
The B.Sc. Nursing (General) is a full-time four-year degree offered by the Department of Nursing and Midwifery, the University of Limerick in conjunction with the Health Service Executive West (Limerick, Clare and Tipperary North). On successful completion of the programme, students will be able to present for registration with Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) and practise as a Registered General Nurse (R.G.N.).
Nursing programmes at The University of Limerick offer a valuable opportunity to study on a renowned and beautiful campus with enthusiastic and experienced lecturers who support student learning both in practice with our service partners and on campus.
