About

The Graduate Diploma in Cancer Nursing at University College Dublin is an academic and clinically based programme designed for students who wish to deepen and broaden their knowledge and expertise in cancer care in order to provide safe, effective and holistic care to people with cancer. 

Overview

The programme at University College Dublin is aimed at advancing the registered nurse’s repertoire of knowledge and skills in Cancer Nursing; it is particularly aimed at preparing the nurse to assume the role of clinical nurse specialist in their chosen speciality - Adult, Breast, Children or Colorectal Nursing.

Career

Possessing a broad and deep understanding of the theory and skills required for caring for patients with cancerous conditions, you will be well positioned to work in a variety of settings specialising in your chosen area both nationally and internationally.
