This innovative nursing programme leads to the award of a BSc in Nursing with professional registration as a Childrenâs Nurse. You will learn to care for children, young people and their families in a variety of care settings including primary healthcare, hospital and community settings. Throughout the programme we emphasise the integration of theory and research-based practice in the classroom and the clinical setting. The study pathway provides both an academic and practical foundation that will form the basis for high-quality nursing practice.
You will spend part of the course programme in clinical practice through placements, providing you with opportunities to develop your clinical skills. Placements within the programme enable you to experience nursing care in hospitals, as well as in a range of services contributing to the health and development of children and adolescents. These placements occur in a range of settings for example nurseries, schools, community childrenâs services. This also gives you the opportunity to follow a community nursing placement pathway, outside of the traditional hospital setting. If you are interested in community nursing opportunities, please include details of your interest in your personal statement.
Before beginning the course, you must have occupational health clearance and enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service checks completed.
We use a comprehensive range of teaching and learning methods, each tailored to the current area of study, with simulation playing an increasingly significant role in clinical education. Formal lectures account for only a small proportion of the curriculum. We aim to acknowledge the individuality of our students.
Student-centred learning is pivotal to our philosophy, and our teaching methods and we encourage and support self development and awareness through reflection on experience. We utilise practitioners, researchers and lecturers to deliver high quality research-based teaching.
Structure of course and assessment
The programme includes an equal balance of theoretical learning and clinical placements with partner healthcare providers including leading NHS Trusts, private and voluntary organisations. Programmes are full-time, and you will be working shift patterns similar to those of qualified nurses. A variety of coursework, written and practical exams are used to assess you and your clinical practice learning.

Good nursing placements but didn't feel like a uni experience, not proper campuses
