Annual International Networking Week at the School of Nursing and Midwifery

Our annual International Week scheduled for November 2021 is being postponed until February 2022 in light of Covid-19.  The focus will remain on celebrating the WHO designated International Year of the Nurse and Midwife. 

The benefits you will get to partaking in the International Networking Week include:

  • The opportunity to share details about your own field of expertise and explore the potential to collaborate with staff at the School of Nursing and Midwifery, UCC.
  • Our students and staff will get to hear about your institution and country.
  • The opportunity to combine the comprehensive programme organised by the School of Nursing and Midwifery with social and networking activities.
  • The opportunity to visit healthcare services in the City.

Highlights of the week include:

  • Seminars on Advanced Practice, Research Innovation, Teaching and Learning, Simulation, Nurse/Midwife Prescribing and Preceptorship, Nursing and Midwifery in an Irish context.
  • The opportunity to participate and potentially present at the 21st Annual Research Conference. Abstract submission details available on the school’s website.

It was a very intensive week, with all five days planned - great programme.

'It was a great week. This was my second time attending and as I want to further develop our international collaboration I hope to attend in 2020 as well.'

The conference and visit to local hospital were very interesting and rewarding events. We had quite a lot of ideas and thoughts to bring with us to our colleagues.
