Ms Mary Jacob Dean

The Faculty was founded in 1974 and is the longest serving provider of postgraduate nursing education in Ireland.

The inauguration of the Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery took place at the Royal College of Surgeons (RCSI) in Ireland on 30 October 1974 under the fellowship of Ms Mary Frances Crowley.

The Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery consists of a Dean and 12 members, for further information please see Faculty Board, who constitute the Board of the Faculty and it is bound by the constitutions of RCSI and the Council of the College.

As one of the earliest and longest serving providers of nurse education in Ireland, the Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery has ensured wide ranging and relevant programmes of education for nurses from a variety of clinical nursing specialities to date.

A Fellowship in Nursing and Midwifery is available, which has an emphasis on excellence in clinical practice and is one of the most prestigious academic and professional qualifications awarded by the Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery in RCSI.

We collaborate with other departments of the college for multidisciplinary education and research purposes, including the Faculty of Medicine, Health Services, School of Nursing & Midwifery, School of Physiotherapy, and Department of General Practice.

Finally, our excellent and expert team of academic and administrative staff are always available to assist you at RCSI.
