Rachel Prout

“Both my brother and sister are nurses, so I’ve known from a young age that I wanted to become a nurse.”

“I am currently working in Clonmel. It was a brilliant course, the lecturers are so easy to talk to and will help as much as possible. The timetable was also really good because it suited our commuting. While I was in placement in my final year my brother had a serious farming accident and it made me realise I really am in the right caring profession.”

Morgan Prout

“I applied as a mature student and had previously been working in construction. I am now working full time in the Kilkenny/Carlow Mental Health Services”

“Both myself and my cousin Rachel graduated with first class honours from the BSc (Hons) in Psychiatric Nursing and we were placed 1st and 2nd in the national recruitment panel.”

“I commuted daily from home and I have 5 children all between the ages of 6-17. I really enjoyed the course and it was a good college to do it in. It was a very supportive environment.”
