What will I learn?

About the course

Could you provide committed, compassionate and professional care for children and young people and their families when they need it most? Are you looking to learn in an innovative environment supported by experienced practitioners and tutors? Our Nursing (Child) BSc(Hons) degree regulated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) could be just the course to help you pursue your career.

  • You’ll develop and practise your clinical skills in a safe environment in our fully-equipped simulated children’s ward using our patient simulators.
  • Clinical placements provide opportunities for you to put what you’ve learnt into practice in a variety of acute settings including children's wards, accident and emergency departments and neonatal intensive care.
  • Opportunities are available to work with specialist nurses in a range of community settings including GP surgeries, health centres, children's hospices, as well as mainstream and specialist schools.
  • You’ll have the opportunity to hear the experiences and viewpoints from service users and carers, who are part of the Public Partnership Group.
  • You’ll also learn how to respond to the physical, cognitive and mental health care needs of all patients and service users across their lifespan.

From the very start of this course, you’ll get the chance to develop the vital skills, values and confidence you need to care for children, young people and their families whatever their circumstances, including those with acute illness, long-term conditions or those who need help to maintain their health. You’ll learn and develop both practical and theoretical skills in order to achieve your full potential as a children's nurse and meet the Nursing and Midwifery Council standards. After successfully completing the course you’ll be able to apply to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and work as a Registered Nurse for Children.
