Evidence-Based Practice in Ireland

This two-week Maymester program administered by the School of Health Sciences offers students in Nursing and Health Services Administration the opportunity to become immersed in Irish culture through excursions and lectures on concepts related to leadership, health care systems, and research. Exploring Irish culture and Ireland's health care system will help students analyze and make global connections in these important areas.

Participating students can earn 3 credit hours by taking one of the following courses:

  • NURS 3330 Nursing Research Methods
  • NURS 4200 Concepts of the Nurse as Leader/Manager
  • HLSA 3000 Research Methods for Health Sciences
  • HLSA 3100 Leadership in Health Care

Students will complete two weeks of pre-departure work and two weeks of post-return assignments in addition to participating in all required assignments and activities while in Ireland.

The program is based at Waterford Institute of Technology near the southeast coast of Ireland and will travel to cultural and historical sites around the area as well as incorporating lectures and research workshops.
