Nursing Studies: C Condon and Dr R Gonzales

Global Citizenship Development Education (GCDE) in Nursing and Midwifery

Lecturer: Carol Condon
Researcher: Dr Rene Gonzales
Department: School of Nursing & Midwifery, College of Medicine and Health Studies.

The goal of this study was to identify areas of the academic material taught at the School of Nursing and Midwifery (SNM) at UCC, that refer to content potentially related to GCDE. The areas included for this assessment cover undergraduate, postgraduate and research programmes, and were selected by Dr Carol Condon, Co-Director of International Education, Programme Coordinator MSc Nursing, and College Lecturer at SNM, UCC.

Plans to advance this project in the future contemplate the development of a cross-school global citizenship education plan.

This compilation, collated by Dr Gonzales, presents material published on UCC’s Book of Modules* and projects described by Dr Condon.
