The MSc in Childrenâs Nursing is designed for people who already have a degree and are looking for progression and further challenges which can be achieved by undertaking a rewarding and lifelong career within the nursing profession.
The course prepares you for an enjoyable and rewarding career caring for children, and their families, at different stages of the developmental spectrum who have acute and chronic illnesses, suffered injuries, had accidents and/or have a range of healthcare needs. Throughout the course you will develop your knowledge, skills and interests in a variety of settings including paediatric general medicine and surgery, paediatric / neonatal intensive care, the paediatric emergency department and the community.
Childrenâs nursing is a challenging but fulfilling profession. As a childrenâs nurse you need to be committed and dedicated with a willingness to give time to others with care and compassion. You will learn the skills of clinical decision-making that is supported by evidence, knowledge and experience of providing healthcare to a diverse population.
The course combines theoretical study with clinical experience gained at Londonâs leading hospitals, trusts and community settings. The School's facilities feature an excellent Clinical Skills Centre, including simulated wards, where you can prepare for your practice experience. Whilst on clinical placements you will also benefit from exposure to the capitalâs diverse population.
The course has three programme stages, which must be successfully completed in order to progress to the next programme stage.
Programme Stage One of the course is 21 weeks and focuses on the underlying foundation concepts and principles associated with nursing practice.
Programme Stage Two is 33 weeks and will enable you to build upon your previous knowledge and experience so you can develop an ability to deliver person-centred care in different contexts.
Programme Stage Three is 27 weeks and focuses on encouraging you to develop a coherent systematic, detailed knowledge of adult nursing so that you can lead and influence practice.

City is located in an amazing spot, hop on the tube at Angel or Barbican and you’ll be anywhere in Central London in minutes! London is such an exciting place to go to University, the possibilities are endless. The lecturers are passionate and knowledgeable, and the courses are really interactive and informative. The careers service was a massive help too, especially the CV appointments, so you'll feel really confident you'll be employed in graduate work after it’s all over.
They have a lot of support for students and there's a lot of different people of different cultures which is good. Not really a "party" university, most socialising will probably be with the people you live with but good academically
