I began the four-year General Nursing course in University College Cork in September, 2010. For the first three years, study was divided between lectures and practicals in the college and work placements in all different hospitals and fields of nursing. This gives you a great insight early on into which area of nursing might suit you best. You get to experience working on both surgical and medical wards in various hospitals and the emergency department, theatre, intensive care and specialised areas too.
