Course summary

Could you provide committed, compassionate and professional care for children and young people and their families when they need it most? Are you looking to learn in an innovative environment supported by experienced practitioners and tutors? Our Nursing (Child) BSc(Hons) degree regulated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) could be just the course to help you pursue your career. * You’ll develop and practise your clinical skills in a safe environment in our fully-equipped simulated children’s ward using our patient simulators. * Clinical placements provide opportunities for you to put what you’ve learnt into practice in a variety of acute settings including children's wards, accident and emergency departments and neonatal intensive care. * Opportunities are available to work with specialist nurses in a range of community settings including GP surgeries, health centres, children's hospices, as well as mainstream and specialist schools. * You’ll have the opportunity to hear the experiences and viewpoints from service users and carers, who are part of the Public Partnership Group. * You’ll also learn how to respond to the physical, cognitive and mental health care needs of all patients and service users across their lifespan. From the very start of this course, you’ll get the chance to develop the vital skills, values and confidence you need to care for children, young people and their families whatever their circumstances, including those with acute illness, long-term conditions or those who need help to maintain their health. You’ll learn and develop both practical and theoretical skills in order to achieve your full potential as a children's nurse and meet the Nursing and Midwifery Council standards. After successfully completing the course you’ll be able to apply to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and work as a Registered Nurse for Children. The Government has announced that from September 2020 new and existing students studying this course will be eligible to receive a non-repayable grant of at least £5,000 each year. Further information is available on the Government's website (https://www.gov.uk/government/news/nursing-students-to-receive-5-000-payment-a-year?) and the Council of Deans Frequently Asked Questions (https://councilofdeans.org.uk/2019/12/new-student-support-arrangements-for-healthcare-students/). Nursing (Child) BSc(Hons) has been designed and validated in conjunction with academics, local employers and service users. As well providing successful graduates with a BSc(Hons) qualification, it also provides the opportunity for them to apply to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and work as a registered nurse for Children. The course combination of 50% theory and 50% practice, prepares students well for this challenging role within healthcare. It provides the opportunity for students to apply and refine the skills and knowledge they have learnt in the classroom, to real world situations whilst undertaking placement experiences in a variety of different areas. The course team also work closely with practice supervisors and assessors in practice to ensure that excellent teaching and learning environments are provided for our students. ~ Karen Currell, Senior Lecturer.
