Dundalk Institute of Technology achieve 100% employment rate for nursing programme

Published 10 October 2022

Dundalk Institute of Technology’s Intellectual Disability Nursing Programme has achieved a 100% employment rate following the release of Graduate Survey Statistics.

100% of programme graduates are employed in permanent contracts after six months of graduating and almost all graduates believe the course to be very relevant for their career and that they would do the same course again if choosing.

Expressing joy over the report, Dr. Myles Hackett (Head of Department Nursing, Midwifery and Early Years) said: “I am delighted with the results of the graduate survey for the DkIT BSc (Hons) in Intellectual Disability Nursing programme

“It is a testament to my colleagues in DkIT and our clinical partners who focus on ensuring that graduates from the programme have the professional knowledge, skills, and values to fulfil the role of staff nurse in intellectual disability services. I have no doubt that graduates of the BSc (Hons) in Intellectual Disability Nursing programme demonstrate excellence in the delivery of person-centred care to persons with an intellectual disability across their lifespan in a variety of settings.”

The Intellectual Disability Nursing Programme is a four-year honours degree course designed to help students develop critical professional skills to serve intellectual disability patients.
