40 years of Orthopaedic Nursing Education

Cappagh National Orthopaedic Hospital is celebrating 40 years of Orthopaedic Nursing Education in 2016 (1976 – 2016). 

To celebrate this event, we are planning an afternoon / evening reception in October 20th. We are looking to make contact with all staff who completed either the Certificate / Diploma / Higher Diploma / Post Graduate Diploma programme from 1976 up to the current year.

We have a dedicated email address set up to gather your information so that we can inform you of this date.

Can you include your name (maiden name if appropriate) /  the year that you undertook the course or an estimate / mobile number & email address  / any anecdotal stories that you might like to share (as we plan to compile a souvenir booklet of names, photos, some anecdotes) / any photos that you might want to share and send this information to:
