Dr. Suzanne Denieffe

It is my pleasure to introduce you to the Department of Nursing & Health Care at Waterford Institute of Technology. Never has there been a more interesting and challenging time to join the health care professions.

Increasing demands on health care services and changes in health care delivery through, for example, new health care technologies, have extended the range of opportunities for rapid professional development. The Department of Nursing  and Health Care at Waterford Institute of Technology are  a key provider of nursing and health education and research.

The Department provides undergraduate BSc (honours) programmes that prepare students for registration with the Nursing  and Midwifery Board of Ireland in general, psychiatric and intellectual disability nursing, as well as providing the innovative BSc in Applied Health Care.

We also have a strong postgraduate programme focus to  meet the needs of a wide range of healthcare professionals seeking continuing professional development.  We  offer  taught work based post graduate programmes in a range of nursing specialities along with a range of courses in therapies including basic cognitive therapy, psychosocial interventions, cognitive therapy and motivational interviewing, and also management programmes.

All our  programmes are supported by an extensive research portfolio and a range of regional, national and international service and academic partners and alliances. Therefore, I invite you to explore our web pages; to learn about the Department of Nursing  and Health Care and the many ways it can help you to develop and support your professional career path
