For my particular job role, as a yield analysis engineer, good organization and communication skills are quite important. Along with having the technical knowledge, being able to properly communicate your ideas/findings is very important. A lot of my day is spent dealing with other people in the factory and it is very important to be able to communicate efficiently with them.

Enterprising
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Summary... header image

The Bachelor of Nursing Science (BNSc) – General, is a four year degree pre-registration programme. The programme is offered in conjunction with Sligo General Hospital and other Health Service Executive organisations and groups in the Western region. 

Two thirds of the theory component of the programme is devoted to nursing subjects, one sixth to science subjects and one sixth to the social sciences. 

The course is taught through lectures, seminars, group work, role play, workshops, and practical skills training.  We assess learning through essays; exams; posters; group presentations and by observing students completing a nursing skill.   

In each semester students will undertake at least one clinical module whereby time will be spent in the hospital or community learning the art of general nursing. Students spend over half of the programme in the hospital or community settings.
