"Before I began attending SligoCFE to do the Healthcare Studies course, I was unsure whether Nursing was the right profession for me. I had already acquired a place on a Degree Nursing course but decided to defer and I'm delighted I did. I have gained so much insight in Nursing and have acquired valuable skills which I can take with me into my chosen profession. I found the college environment very structured and welcoming and made many new friends along the way".
