Your First Year Experience


As a first year UCD student nurse or midwife you will receive all the support you need to enjoy your first taste of college life. You will learn from experienced and helpful lecturers and support staff, develop your learning skills and discover how to make full use of information and computer technology. You will meet new friends, join in the many sports clubs and societies, and quickly adapt to college life.


It also involves putting on a uniform and walking onto a ward or maternity unit for the first time as a ‘professional’ person, giving your first injection, recording a person’s blood pressure, changing a wound dressing, helping a person in pain or distress, helping a woman in labour and, above all, feeling proud of yourself at the end of the year for having achieved so much.
