Professional Development Modules and Micro-credentials

At the School of Nursing, Psychotherapy and Community Health, a variety of contemporary practice focused modules and micro-credenitials 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.

The School welcomes the opportunity to develop new modules that address the ever-changing education needs of the health care sector.

The University does not refund application or registration fees for professional development modules, however, students can defer their registration to the next available sitting.

Module descriptors are available here
