Course summary

Children's nurses are part of multidisciplinary teams that care for children of all ages. They play an essential role in assessing a child's needs and supporting children's families. This Master's degree enables graduates from a range of backgrounds the opportunity to transfer their skills to become a registered nurse (child). The course is aimed at graduates of relevant degrees who aspire to qualify for eligibility to apply to the NMC Register. The course is underpinned by the Nursing and Midwifery Councils's (NMC) core values and aims to promotes critical thinking skills and the spirit of inquiry. Over the past few decades the nurse’s role has developed due to the changing context of health and social care, resulting in a wide range of new roles and services. Registered nurses (child) hold a significant role in terms of leading and coordinating care provision for people across the lifespan; aware of complex mental, physical, cognitive and behavioural care needs of those they look after. This Master's degree aims to develop registered nurses (child) who prioritise people by providing safe and effective care, educating those in their care through the use of technology, promoting health literacy to prevent ill health, and supporting healthy choices and lifestyles. The course has been developed to raise the professional values and social conscience of students to prepare them for future healthcare roles. Nurses translate evidence-based knowledge to improve healthcare delivery while maintaining and emphasising the ethics of person centred care. Modules on this course have been designed with this in mind and aim to stimulate innovation, improve quality, manage risk, and identify areas for productive change. The University of Lincoln, together with our practice partners, share a vision to prepare students to become dynamic nurses that are fit for practice in rapidly changing and challenging care environments. Students will also achieve PGDip and PGCert.
