Course summary

About this course

Develop the skills to provide compassionate nursing care to neonates, children, adolescents and their families. Work across healthcare settings on this graduate entry PGDip in Child Nursing. Learn to make complex decisions, evaluate practice and advocate for your patients' needs.

This postgraduate diploma in nursing is designed for graduates and career changers who want to make a tangible difference to health outcomes. Gain advanced clinical skills and work collaboratively with multidisciplinary specialists.

The pre-registration child nursing diploma is also ideal if you’re already a qualified nurse and want a second field of registration. You'll join a community with a consistent global ranking for nursing and midwifery: 5th in the world and 2nd among UK universities (QS World Rankings by Subject 2020/21).

You'll carry out a mix of theoretical learning and practice hours which meet the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) requirements for registration as a nurse. Practice learning takes the form of placements in a range of healthcare settings.

Developing critical thinking, reasoning and analytical skills are a big focus of your studies. You'll improve your leadership skills so that you can supervise, delegate and challenge practice in the future.

When you complete the diploma you’ll be eligible to register with the NMC as a Registered Nurse (Chilld). You must apply to register within 5 years of completing your course.

Careers

You’ll be actively supported to identify where you may wish to work for your first post as a registered nurse.

We have a dedicated School Lead for Employability. As well as timetabled careers activities, we’ll invite you to attend the School's annual Health Sciences Careers Fair. You’ll meet potential employers and gain invaluable early careers advice about your options.

As a child nursing graduate from the University of Southampton, you’ll have the ideal platform to move into more senior positions. For example consultant nurse, leading a team or working in advanced clinical practice.
