Course summary

Our child nursing course is the first step towards a rewarding career, which could take you anywhere in the world and see you working with newborns, children and teenagers. With an equal balance of theory and practice, you will graduate as a critical thinker with hands-on experience. On our Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) approved course, you will learn how to care for young people from birth up to the age of 18. As a children’s nurse, you’ll need to have a natural rapport with young people so that you can minimise the impact of illness or hospital stays. But of course, you will also work closely with parents, carers and relatives – so we will focus on communicating effectively and sympathetically with families.We are committed to the principles and values of the NHS Constitution (DH, 2013) which include respect and dignity, commitment to quality of care, compassion, improving lives, working together for patients and the understanding that everyone counts. We will explore the impact of environmental, social, cultural and developmental factors on children's health, while considering how parental practices and children individual needs vary.You’ll learn to co-ordinate and deliver evidence-based care, working alongside other health or social care teams, such as voluntary agencies, community groups and statutory bodies. We run a variety of healthcare programmes so there will also be opportunities to share your knowledge with students from other courses and discuss how your chosen professions interact. During your training, you will benefit from our facilities which reflect UK hospital wards and include a specialist child nursing room.Our degree course is 50% theory and 50% practice placements. We work in partnership with local NHS trusts and other healthcare organisations, and you will be linked to one of our NHS trust partners for your placements. If you study in Cambridge, your placements will be around Cambridgeshire or West Essex. If you study in Chelmsford, your placements will be around Essex or North East London. If you have a preferred location for your placements, we’ll try to take this into account but cannot guarantee that you will be allocated there. While on placements, you will work shifts and will need to arrange your own transport. Consult our placement maps to find out more.Teaching on campus takes place between 9am and 7pm, Monday to Friday. Placements will include early, late and night shifts, as well as weekends and bank holidays. You will have seven weeks’ annual holiday at set times (which may not coincide with school holidays).
