Course summary

About this course

This BSc Child Nursing degree will give you the wide-ranging skills needed to provide evidence-based and compassionate nursing care to children. You'll learn how children's health needs can be very different to those of adults. You'll also develop advanced communication skills, focused on paediatric nursing.

While at Southampton, a world-leader for nursing, you'll study:

  • the science that underpins nursing

  • the evidence base behind the nurse's role

  • how nurses promote health and help people maintain health and well-being

You'll develop practice skills through a range of nursing placements, and your learning will be further supported through simulated practice and clinical skills teaching.
