Welcome New Graduate Nurses

St. Vincent’s University Hospital is currently accepting applications for New Graduate Nurses for full – time permanent positions across all areas.

St. Vincent’s University Hospital (SVUH) is one of the world’s leading academic teaching hospitals providing front line, acute, chronic and emergency care across over 40 different medical specialities – in the country’s only integrated multi-hospital campus.

We are recognised worldwide for setting standards of excellence in clinical diagnosis and treatment, education and research and a pioneering, multi-disciplinary approach to patient care. We are the only public hospital in Ireland with international accreditation.

Graduate Mentorship Programme

The Graduate Mentorship Programme has been introduced in conjunction with Nursing Practice Development. Our aim is to offer graduates the opportunity to transfer their education and develop their skills in a supportive environment while also exposing them to challenges of a large, busy acute hospital as outlined above.  The eighteen month graduate programme begins with a two-week orientation, 1 day of nursing induction refresher and the remaining days tailored specifically to the Graduate’s needs in order to support them in their transition as registered nurses. Under the guidance of our skilled and dedicated nursing workforce, nurses then will have a choice to get into our rotational programme: complete a six-month medical placement, six month surgical placement followed by an optional six- month specialist placement. 

St Vincent’s University Hospital also offers through their annual Continual Professional Development (CPD) an opportunity to expand our nurses with their career development through the development of managerial skills and the pursuit of further education and training.
