  • Students on this programme benefit from smaller class sizes and one to one engagement with lecturers.

The Higher Diploma in Midwifery is an 18-month full-time add-on course for Registered General Nurses who wish to become midwives.

The programme is delivered in partnership with Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital Drogheda and will provide students with the knowledge and skills required to carry out their duties as a midwife in accordance with the definition of a midwife adapted from the International Confederation of Midwives’ (ICM 2011) definition and adopted by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI).

The higher diploma programme was very practically based and gave me the real-life learning needed to develop my skills to become a competent Midwife.
