These are congruent with the health based strategies of the Department of Health, with the professional based strategies of Bord Altranais agus Cnáimhseachais na hÉireann, the previous National Council for the Professional Development of Nursing and Midwifery, the educational based strategies of Quality and Qualification Ireland. The programme facilitates professional planning and leadership for participants within clinical practice, within management, research and/or education.

HOW IS THE PROGRAMME DELIVERED?
Delivery of the programme includes a blend of keynote lectures, learner led seminars, self-directed independent learning and interactive learning. Nurse participants will learn with, from and about other professionals through shared modules.
