The Department of Nursing and Midwifery was established at the University in 2003 and is part of the Faculty of Education and Health Sciences (EHS). We are situated in the state-of-the-art Health Sciences Building, on the North bank Campus of the University of Limerick. We offer a wide range of study opportunities that emphasise a flexible and lifelong approach to learning.  We are committed to facilitating students’ personal and professional development within a supportive, respectful and flexible environment.  We value, respect, and attend to the aesthetic of learning, teaching, and the educational environment.  We strive to demonstrate the qualities of openness, balance, rigorous scholarship, research, and respect for diversity and creativity.

Through innovative approaches to teaching and learning, we provide our students with the very best opportunities and supports to pursue their studies in order to become safe, effective, skilled, and knowledgeable professional practitioners of nursing or midwifery. We strongly support the principle of equal access and encourage all students and staff to achieve their full potential within an open, liberal and facilitative environment.  With staff from a range of professional and disciplinary backgrounds, the Department of Nursing and Midwifery provides a rich environment for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The University offers a wide variety of student resources, including world-class library facilities and a range of student supports. Please explore our website to find out more about the opportunities available to you, and we look forward to welcoming you to the Department of Nursing & Midwifery.
