The Nursing Careers Centre was set up under the management of An Bord Altranais in November 1998. The NCC is committed to the principles of good recruiting practice. These principles involve fair and impartial selection of the best candidates for the pre-registration honours degree programmes. In carrying out this function, the NCC works closely with:


  • the Central Applications Office (CAO) to which application is made
  • the Higher Education Institutions
  • the Public Appointments Service (PAS) regarding the written assessment
  • the personnel involved in the interview.

In carrying out this function, the NCC works closely with all the key stakeholders involved in the education and training of student nurses/midwives, including the Department of Health and Children, personnel in healthcare agencies, the national promotion and marketing liaison group, personnel in Higher Education Institutions, and personnel in the second-level education sector, including guidance counsellors, and many others.

The NCC has developed the publication Nursing/Midwifery: Career Development. Post Registration Courses, outlining various post-registration education opportunities for Registered Nurses and Midwives.
