Emergency Nursing at CUH


CUH Emergency Department is one of the busiest in Ireland and can offer a rewarding range of career progression opportunities. At CUH we recruit experienced as well as newly qualified and overseas nurses to join our team, providing tailored adaptation, or induction programmes for each group. This may include induction weeks, supernumerary periods, mentorship, study days and appraisal to support the nurse as they join our diverse and growing workforce.

Career progression is an important part of our retention strategy, and so we ensure our nurses work their way through each area of our department, through our Majors and Rapid Assessment areas, through to our Clinical Decisions Unit, Geriatric and Emergency Medicine section, Paediatric ED, Resus and Triage.

To compliment this, we offer a range of formal education programmes including:

  • ACLS
  • Trauma Nursing Core Course
  • Post Graduate Diploma / Masters in Trauma and Emergency Nursing
  • X-Ray Prescribing
  • Nurse prescribing
  • Advanced Nurse Practitioner course

We work closely with our academic partner UCC and also have our own team of ED Clinical Skills Facilitators who provide in-house training, and support staff in their clinical practice development.

Our department has a wide variety of nurses working providing direct patient care and leadership at every level, from student and staff nurses, Clinical nurse manager 1, 2 and 3, Advanced Nurse Practitioners and Assistant Directors of Nursing.
