NFQ Level 7, Major Award
ALTERNATIVE PATHWAY FOR STUDENTS NOT COMPLETING THIRD UNIVERSITY EXAMINATION IN NURSING
The BSc Health Studies, NFQ Level 7, is an alternative ordinary bachelor's degree pathway for students who do not satisfy the pass standard for the Part B practice module in the chosen area of specialisation (NU3086) on the BSc (Hons) Nursing (Intellectual Disability). Students who do not pass the Part B practice module for Year 3 of the BSc (Hons) Nursing either at the first Examination or at the first attempt in a Repeat year will re-register instead for the non-clinical BSc Health Studies. This pathway does not confer eligibility to practice as a Registered Nurse.
To complete the BSc Health Studies, a student must pass all Part A modules for the third-year BSc Nursing Examinations and achieve a pass in the Part B independent study module NU3046 (10 credits). Students who complete the Part B study module are required to exit the programme with a BSc Health Studies award.
