Ciaran Murphy BSc (Hons) in Intellectual Disability Nursing describes his favourite experiences while studying at WIT including classes and staff

"For me, the best part of the programme has definitely been the clinical placement.  

Placement has given me a chance to gain much needed hands on experience.  

I’ve had the opportunity to work with both adults and children with varying levels of intellectual disabilities, in a range of services all across the south east.  

I enjoyed my lectures and classes when I was in college and all the staff in the Department of Nursing and Health Care are very approachable and helpful."
