Nursing, Health Sciences And Disability Studies - Overview of the Department Programmes

Undergraduate Nursing Programmes
The Department of Nursing, Health Sciences and Disability Studies delivers two full time undergraduate honours nursing degree programmes: the Bachelor of Nursing Science (General) and the Bachelor of Nursing Science (Intellectual Disability).  Both of these programmes include practice experience which is gained chiefly with college’s associated health care partners, Sligo University Hospital (Health Service Executive-NW) and HSE: Intellectual Disability Services. As part of our commitment to enhancing the lives of those with an intellectual disability, we offer a Certificate in Life-skills Studies for persons with an I.D.  This certificate comprises of three modules and is delivered on a part-time basis.
studentsBachelor of Arts Programmes
In September 2011 the Department introduced a 3 year Level 8 Bachelor of Arts (Health & Disability Studies) programme.   This full-time honours degree programme explores health in its broadest sense, examining not only the concepts & determinants of health & wellbeing but also the attitudes of society towards health and how health maintenance can be supported. The experience of having a disability is explored by examining the concepts that underpin our understanding of disability and looking at how we as a society respond to the person with disability.   In September 2016,  the Department will commence delivering an additional under-graduate programme which has a disability focus. The Bachelor of Arts (Disability Equality Studies) will be an online four year part-time programme. Alternatively prospective students can opt to study for a Certificate in Disability Studies.
Post-Graduate Programmes
The Department has been actively involved in Post-Graduate Nurse Education for the past 15 years.  The programmes developed and delivered by the Department pay due cognisance to the needs of service; the professional development needs of prospective students and the changing health care environment. All programmes delivered at post-graduate level are at level 9 on the National Qualifications Framework and are primarily delivered in a blended learning format, so that students can study at a time and pace suitable to them. We currently offer one year Master of Health Sciences programme.  Applicants must possess a Post-Graduate Diploma in a specialist area to undertake this research Masters.
Registered Psychiatric nurses with relevant experience can undertake a Post Graduate Diploma in Nursing (Community Mental Health) in one calendar year. meet nursing studentsThe blended learning nature of this programme requires students to attend the college for only 13 days is amenable for RPNs anywhere in the country. In recognition of the fact, that some health care professionals are unable to commit or do not wish to complete an entire programme of study, we have developed a novel and exciting range of stand-alone/professional development modules.  The stand-alone modules are tailored to meet the professional needs of all members of the multi-disciplinary team. The academic credits attained for these modules can be accumulated for up to a five year period. Successful completion of 6 stand-alone/professional development modules (incl. 2 core modules) leads to the award of Post Graduate Diploma in Health Sciences (Professional Studies/Nursing Studies/ Healthcare Quality Studies).  A Post Graduate Certificate/Diploma in Applied Health and Wellness coaching is planned for September 2016.
In conjunction with the college’s Centre of Life Long Learning (CLL) the Department provide two programmes for International Nursing & Heath Care graduates.  A one year full-time Bachelor of Nursing (International) for nurses educated to Diploma level and a one year full-time Master of Health Sciences (Health Care Management: International) for health care professionals.  In addition, Department staff support the CLL in the delivery of a number of Nursing & Midwifery Board of Ireland approved continuing education programmes.
