About

The Postgraduate Diploma in Orthopaedic Nursing at Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland will prepare you to exercise an advanced level of clinical judgment and practice – beyond what is required of a registered general nurse (RGN) – in your specialist area of orthopaedic practice.

Overview

The Orthopaedic Nursing programme at Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland aims to assist you in taking a leading role in advancing and developing nursing and midwifery in this area, and effecting policy change in professional practice and health service provision. This programme is also suitable for nurses who are taking up new posts in orthopaedic trauma or for those who have been working in the area for some time but have not completed postgraduate education. It will offer you the opportunity to enhance your knowledge, experience and clinical expertise in the challenging and dynamic environment that is orthopaedic nursing.

The programme is delivered part-time over the course of one academic year, with an option to complete the programme over a period of up to three years if necessary.

The programme is offered in two streams: elective orthopaedic care (in partnership with the National Orthopaedic Hospital, Cappagh) and orthopaedic trauma, which is open to participants working in any orthopaedic trauma unit. Students in the trauma stream will undertake their studies through a combination of online lectures and classes in the RCSI Dublin Campus.
