UCC SNM Annual Report 2018 FINAL

Catherine McAuley School of Nursing and Midwifery, UCC


Professor Josephine Hegarty, Head of School of Nursing and Midwifery, University College Cork, Ireland The last year has seen many developments at the Catherine McAuley School of Nursing and Midwifery, University College Cork. This Annual Report provides an overview of the achievements of the School’s faculty and students in 2018. School of Nursing and Midwifery staff have helped students gain a career-relevant education, which unlocks new opportunities for students and ultimately helps to serve the healthcare needs of the wider community. Although new graduates are always the most important and exciting development for any university, there have been many other noteworthy changes. This report offers stories, statistics, photos, and details that illustrate a wide range of accomplishments. From teaching & learning, to research, to clinical partnerships, to staff recruitment, to wider societal contributions—the sense of momentum at the School is undeniable. The School has continued to explore opportunities to enhance and support the students experience, diversify the range of research projects, international collaborations and partnerships.

Looking forward, the School of Nursing and Midwifery continues to evolve with the changing face of health care, and from this, creates opportunities for student and faculty growth and achievement. We are also confident that those who review this report will have a clear picture of a School of Nursing and Midwifery whose staff are dedicated to continuous improvement and are constantly striving toward being recognised as the best provider of quality higher education for nurses and midwives in this region and beyond. We are looking forward to marking the 25-year history of the School (1994-2019) this year with a celebration on the evening of 27th November 2019 and the launch of a book marking the history of the School and indeed nursing and midwifery in this region. To paraphrase Mr Bob Marley in this bright future, we can’t forget the past . The staff of the School of Nursing and Midwifery wish to acknowledge the exemplary leadership of Professor Eileen Savage as Head of School (January 2012 to September 2018).
