Centre of Children’s Nurse Education (CCNE)

The CCNE is based at CHI, with sites at Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Connolly.

The aim of the CCNE is to provide continuing education, training and professional development for registered children’s nurses and other children’s healthcare professionals. Nurses must constantly develop their knowledge and skills in order to deliver high quality care that is appropriate, safe, effective and efficient.

The CCNE helps nurses achieve this by offering a wide range of programmes that are relevant, based on best evidence and are responsive to current and emerging children’s healthcare needs.
