Your Childrenâs Nursing degree will prepare you for essential nursing practice, as well as specialist areas such as long-term conditions and complex and disabling healthcare issues. This includes conditions and challenges that are specific to young people. It also includes mental health care, as younger people living with long-term conditions are far more vulnerable to developing emotional disorders.
Alongside this youâll learn to work in close partnership with the families and carers of children in your care.
As well as learning how to look after children who are unwell, youâll also learn how to help foster healthy lifestyles in patientsâ early years and adolescence, contributing to their health and wellbeing well into adulthood.
Your course will feature a 50/50 balance between theory and practice. Throughout the course youâll learn through first-hand practical experience. Youâll also work in collaboration with other healthcare students. This hands-on and collaborative approach is key to helping you achieve the best physical, emotional health and wellbeing outcomes.
You will graduate able to meet the physical, emotional and social development needs of children and young people, with a variety of clinical conditions and complex health challenges, in a wide range of healthcare settings.

The course itself has been so interesting that I can't wait until the second year when the content looks even more fascinating. The environment is welcoming. All services you would ever need can be found around campus and their opening times are amazing - especially in a bind! The library is open really late and it's super quiet so it's the perfect place to study, and the range of books they stock is remarkable!
