Tertiary Education Programme

This innovative pilot programme is one of the first of its kind. Students will start their preparation for the general nursing degree programme in the Further Education and Training (FET) sector leading to direct access to the third level college.  

Students will spend the first year of this programme in their local Education and Training Board (ETB) college and then move directly to the higher education programme, with locally designated pathways (Atlantic Technological University (ATU) Castlebar, St Angela’s College, Sligo or ATU, Donegal) to undertake their four-year Nursing programme. 

Further information on how to apply to this programme is available from the National Tertiary Office
