Overview

Children’s Nursing is a highly skilled, rewarding and caring profession where you can make a real difference to people’s lives. You’ll promote health and provide whole-person care in hospitals and the community. However, this pre-registration course will give you the specialist skills needed to help children and young people, as well as educate and support their families. Half the course will be spent at the University, where you’ll learn the theoretical foundations of nursing. The other half will be spent in a variety of clinical settings, developing your hands-on skills. The integration of theory and practice will ensure you become a skilled, competent, compassionate and committed children’s nurse.

Career opportunities

Following successful completion of the programme you will be entitled to apply for registration as a nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council in the Branch of Nursing in which you have specialised. You can now take advantage of the varied opportunities available to you, to put into practice all you have learned and make a positive contribution to the lives of children, young people and their families. Areas in which you could work include acute services within the NHS; a range of community settings including general or specialised community nursing and schools or Hospice Care; the range is wide and varied.

You will meet many interesting people and each day will be different. You will always be learning, developing new and innovative skills through experience and education that will enable you to diversify or specialise in a particular area of Children’s Nursing, giving opportunity for promotion and job satisfaction.
