This Summer school is specifically tailored to provide nursing students an opportunity to visit Ireland, learn about Irish culture and the Irish healthcare system.
Each summer school can be adapted to facilitate any college’s particular requests in terms of focus and lectures. Students will be offered instruction on various aspects of Irish Studies including Irish Culture and Irish Nursing Practice and Education.
Summer School 2018
The Department of Nursing WIT hosted another successful Summer School Programme this year with a group from Middle Georgia State University. Twenty nursing students and two members of faculty participated in this Summer School. Lectures on a number of topics such as history, culture, healthcare, Irelands approach and management of people with Intellectual disability and Nursing skills and management were a flavour of some of the topics covered.
In addition to lectures, the Summer School supports an ethos of experiential learning and so day trips to An Rinn, Ardmore, Famine Ship New Ross and the Hook Lighthouse augmented and deepened the students experience of learning.
As one student put it “This study abroad trip has opened my eyes and my horizons as well as my views on the world. I will be forever grateful for this opportunity and I would absolutely recommend any other student to do it"
