- About RCSI
On successful completion of the programme students will be able to:
- Develop a systemic understanding and critical awareness of current challenges and/or new insights at the forefront of nursing and health.
- Take responsibility to develop a research proposal and undertake a supervised research dissertation on an area appropriate to their area of nursing practice.
- Critically evaluate the cultural environment in which healthcare is delivered and engage in critical discussion on key contemporary discourses in nursing and health.
- Critically self evaluate their professional and personal learning needs consistent with their area of practice and their continuing professional development.
Throughout the programme the student is expected to apply all assessment and course work to their own area of clinical practice. This ensures integration of theory and practice and makes this programme relevant to the practice of nursing, patient care and the health services.
