Part of the Nurse Education in Practice book series (NEP)


At the University of Dundee, the School of Nursing and Midwifery offers a three-year diploma programme, whilst the School of Medicine provides a five-year medical undergraduate programme of study. During their training the students undertaking these programmes have three collaborative meeting points for shared teaching in ethics at junior, intermediate and senior. At present, the School of Nursing and Midwifery has two intakes per year in March and September. The September intake is involved with the ethics sessions at junior and senior levels, and the March intake at the intermediate level.
