Study children's nursing in a school that is embedded in a real hospital environment and benefits from children's community settings. We are one of a small number of schools in the UK which score highly in both teaching and research. We were rated âGoldâ in the 2017 Teaching Exercise Framework, ranked 8th in the UK for our research power (2014 Research Exercise Framework). Giving you three full years in your chosen specialism, this course is designed to build the skills and knowledge needed for a modern nursing career. We will ensure you have a range of acute and community care experiences including medical, surgical, Emergency Department, Paediatric Intensive Care, neonatal wards, special school, school nursing service, health visiting, childrenâs community nursing team and childrenâs hospice. Alongside the huge range of University support services, particular care has been given to develop a course that supports you to become a confident and independent learner. As such, the course has been specially developed to provide the wide-ranging, high-level skills you need; not just in terms of the physical work you will do, but also by sharpening your creativity, critical judgement and ability to lead.
In your first year you will develop essential care and assessment skills, learn safeguarding issues, such as infection control and detecting vulnerable children, and learn how to work in a professional setting. In year two, you will build on your previous experience from first-year placements and study. You will then begin to take on more responsibility, and further your clinical reasoning skills as you start to look after one or two patients of your own. By your final year you will be working under more distant supervision, and you will be responsible for a small group of patients making confident, proactive decisions for their health.
