This survey reports on an evaluation of student satisfaction after undertaking blended learning postgraduate programmes in a school of nursing and midwifery. There is little data available in Ireland that considers the student experience of online learning in this student cohort. An anonymous pre-validated survey was sent to students after completion of their respective programme of study. Satisfaction with undertaking a programme through blended learning revealed that students are most satisfied with the flexible nature of programme delivery, the communication processes between them and instructors and the overall learning achieved in relation to the development of their personal and professional skills. Students indicated that they are less satisfied with the communication associated with assessment and feedback procedures.
