The course covers the treatment of children with: acute and short term conditions; long-term conditions; disabilities and complex conditions, including those requiring continuing health care and neonates and life-limiting and life-threatening illness, including those requiring end of life care.

As a community children’s nurse you must be able to demonstrate flexibility and creativity, working collaboratively with children, young people and their families and demonstrating high quality practice leadership to maximise patient independence in collaboration with partner organisations.

The specialist practice experience and theoretical learning provided by this course will enable you to deliver seamless, high quality, holistic care. You will use your existing skills, knowledge and experience to provide holistic nursing care to children, young people and their families at home, or close to home. The course will also equip you to lead and develop community children’s services.

Assessment

How learning is monitored on your programme

To cater for the wide-ranging content of our courses and the varied learning preferences of our students, we offer a range of assessment methods on each programme. Assessment techniques vary from module to module to reflect relevant assessment approaches and the key learning points of each topic.

To gain the credits required for each module you must be able to demonstrate that you have achieved all of the learning outcomes for that module and completed the Practice Evidence Tool.

Formal grading, which counts towards your final module results, involves essays, seminar presentations, reflective diaries, reports and essays, exams and clinical skill observations. You will also receive feedback on your progress throughout the course.

Theory assessments are awarded pass, refer or fail and practice assessments are classed as competent or not competent in each specific area.
