To promote and develop high quality in-service and continuing
professional development for inter-and multidisciplinary health
care staff, enhancing the provision of evidence-based care
to patients in accordance with best practice and the mission
and values of Bon Secours Hospital and Health System
Staff in the Centre of Nurse Education are committed to providing
excellence in education and training based upon their substantial
experience and expertise in many areas of clinical nursing
and midwifery practice.
The significance of providing on-going professional education
and training for staff in health care ensures that nurses and
midwives are accountable for the delivery of high quality care
to patients and relatives. Registered practitioners are facilitated
to meet their professional obligation thus maintaining their
fitness to practice, promoting the best interests of patients
at all times.
Our postgraduate education and training programmes combine
theoretical and practical aspects. Participants are provided
with research based information and an opportunity to reflect
and apply theory to practice. The education strategies implemented
are person centred and foster an openness to change and a commitment
to life-long learning, in an effort to ensure excellence in
nursing and midwifery practice.
