‘I completed my nursing studies course in DIFE in 2015/2016. I loved every minute of my tine there. My tutors were excellent and patiently answered all my questions. I am now going on to study Adult Nursing in Greenwich University and eagerly look forward to becoming a great nurse. This was all made possible by the fantastic support system available to me at Drogheda Institute of Further Education. This course is a great foundation for anyone considering a future career in Nursing’ – Emma Walsh
