This course aspires to meet the needs of registered nurses working in acute medical settings with evidence-based knowledge and training so that they can expertly recognise, intervene in and manage acute changes in the complex conditions of patientcare environments. The programme is delivered over two years using a blended-learning format, combining online learning and face-to-face workshops. On completion of Year One, students have the option of being awarded a Postgraduate Diploma or (if they have achieved a minimum 60% average mark across these modules) may progress on to the second year to complete the MSc programme. The programme is comprised of six theory/ practice modules. It will be delivered using a blended-learning format, combining online learning and face-to-face workshops. Case studies will be used to help students test out what they would do in different situations. Students will work in a clinical setting for the duration of the programme, and students learning in a clinical setting will be supported by their unit manager and named preceptor. Modules titles are listed online (under Curriculum Information): www.nuigalway.ie/courses/taught-postgraduatecourses/ nursing-acute-medicine.html#course_outline.
