Nurture

A key requirement for future healthcare professionals is the need to cultivate skills to self-manage well-being and self-care in order to sustain effectiveness and performance in training and future professional practice.

The demands of the healthcare training and work environment can be significant but ultimately rewarding. RCSI is committed to encouraging and assisting students to maintain optimum physical and mental health during their programme of studies. This involves encouraging a continuous learning environment that promotes and values a positive growth mindset, personal self-awareness, positive health, a capacity for reflective practice and an ability to identify needs and seek out support and resources.

Our services and programmes, targeting specific core and enabling competencies, are designed to respond to student needs and assist students to develop holistic strategies for success within the personal domain.
