Course summary

Course Overview

Caring for the most important person in someone's life, their child, is a big responsibility, yet it is a very fulfilling job. Children and young people need nurses who understand their particular needs and can work in partnership with them and their families.

Nursing children can take you from the intensive care of a new-born baby with breathing problems, to looking after a six foot tall adolescent whose leg has been broken. It will cover a range of settings from the hospital to the child's own home.

More than just a degree

Once you graduate, you'll be able to register as a nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and you will be able to practice in the UK. Opportunities for children's nurses are continually expanding. You may be working in a busy hospital ward or department, as a nurse specialist running your own clinic, or in one of the expanding community areas such as a large health centre. What makes children nursing such a challenge is the sheer diversity of situations you will have to respond to, no two days are ever the same. Nursing involves more than practice. You will understand the theory and facts behind diagnosis that can help you to make crucial decisions when looking after a patient. You will be able to lead changes in practice, improving the quality of delivery of care.
