The Certificate in Emergency Nursing endeavours to educate and guide emergency nursing practice, a speciality that is underpinned by expert knowledge, specialist education and clinical experience.

Given the acuity of patients who present to Emergency Departments it is recognised that there is a need to develop additional clinical expertise among emergency nurses. In light of this a consortium of five Institutes of Technology has been commissioned by the Office of the Nursing and Midwifery Services Director (ONMSD) H.S.E. to deliver a Level 8 Special Purpose Award in Emergency Nursing for nurses working in Emergency Departments.

This programme supports the commitment made by ONMSD H.S.E. in association with the National Emergency Medicine Programme, to provide clinical education for nurses working in Emergency Departments.
