Professional Development Modules

At the School of Nursing and Human Sciences, a variety of contemporary practice focused modules have been developed to respond to the educational needs of nurses and other healthcare professionals. Some are in partnership with healthcare institutions, the HSE and both statutory and voluntary sector organisations.  We use a variety of teaching and assessment methods to ensure these modules are an enjoyable educational experience for participants. All are supported by our online learning environment Loop which facilitates student learning during modules. These modules are available nationally or within DCU and can run specifically for services on request. Please contact Dr Louise Hopper for further information. The School welcomes the opportunity to develop new modules that address the ever-changing education needs of the health care sector.
