  • BSc (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
Study to become a children's nurse in facilities described by the Nursing and Midwifery Council as 'a beacon for the future development of health education in this country'. **What you study** Key areas of study include • communication skills • public health • biological sciences • practical nursing skills • social sciences • psychology • ethics • professional requirements • family centred care • leadership • evidence based practice. **Teaching and learning** We use a wide range of teaching and learning strategies throughout the course. You are encouraged to link the theory and practice of nursing through case scenarios, real life situations and reflection on practice. You take part in workshops, seminars, simulation, role play and key skills practice, which help you prepare for placement and gain the evidence based knowledge and professional attitudes to underpin your practice. We encourage you to develop independent learning skills so you can make the most of your academic and practical experience, which prepares you for personal and professional development beyond registration as a nurse. You also develop resilience and build employability skills, so you are ready for the wide range of career opportunities offered by the developing role of the nurse. The Faculty of Health and Wellbeing delivers courses that enable graduates to register as professionals across a range of health and social care related subject areas. Current government policy drivers require different professional groups to work much more closely together in order to deliver better outcomes for people that use services, whilst making best use of public resources. The size and scope of provision at Sheffield Hallam means that you get to learn with, from and about other professions within health and social care. Our goal is to equip you with the knowledge, skills and values that enhance your employment opportunities, give you a strong professional identity as well as confidence in working with different professional groups and agencies. You also have the unique opportunity to undertake a nationally recognised paediatric life support course, and gain insight into other fields of nursing during the course. **Facilities** We provide modern facilities to help you develop clinical skills and specialist knowledge for your career.. Our clinical suites include simulated clinical environments and replicated community settings, in which you learn and work. This makes it easier for you to take what you've learnt at university out into the real world with confidence. **Placements and work experience** Practice-based learning is central to your development and you spend 50% of each year on placement within either a hospital, community or independent sector setting across the Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster, Bassetlaw and Barnsley region. You will undertake a range of exciting placements in stimulating environments, helping you build your skills, confidence, flexibility, adaptability and resilience, which are essential to a registered nurse providing care in transforming services. During your placements you will be provided with a mentor to help you develop your skills competency. Your academic study supports your learning on placement and your placement experience allows you to develop your thinking about the application of evidence to practice. This will help you to develop both personally and professionally, and you will become a knowledgeable problem solver and critical thinker. **Professional recognition** This course is approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Graduates are eligible to apply to register with them. You must be registered with the NMC in order to practise as a nurse in the UK.

    I think Hallam can be a great university, especially if you choose to live in and want a good night life. The only real downside to it is the poor management of timetables, but that may be relevant to my course only.
