Child Nursing - Liverpool John Moores University

Children's nurses provide essential physical, emotional, and psychological care to children, young people and their families. They play a crucial role in helping to improve and extend the health and life choices for children and young people via education, health promotion, support, advice or advocacy and sometimes protection. Children's nurses need to understand how a healthy child develops towards adulthood and how to minimise the impact of illness or hospital admission on the child. Excellent communication and observation skills are crucial as children are less able to communicate their symptoms than adults and it is vital that their development does not suffer additionally due to the stress of being ill or in hospital. This professionally-accredited degree will give you the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes needed to deliver safe and effective nursing practice while working with children and young people and their families in a range of environments, from acute settings and within patient's homes to schools and specialist centres. Child Nursing is not all about the child, as you also need to consider the care and support needed by the wider-family, including parents or whoever looks after the child at home. A child nurse ensures that the child (and their family or carers) are at the centre of all care decisions. Child nurses appreciate the diversity of health needs and will develop the required professional skills to support the empowerment of children and young people, families, carers, groups and communities. New Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Standards The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) is the professional body that evaluates and monitors all Nursing and Midwifery courses in the UK. Only education and training providers accredited by the NMC can deliver courses that lead to Qualified Nurse or Midwife status and registration with the NMC. In 2018, the NMC released plans to update the standards for pre-registration nursing and midwifery programmes, starting after 28th January 2019. The new standards set out the entry requirements, length of programme, methods of assessment and the level of award. To ensure that our programmes are at the forefront of nursing and midwifery education and meet the new standards, LJMU is working closely with our practice partners updating our course content and student assessment methods. The course content onthe next tab is based on the existing NMC standards, and will be different to the course delivered from September 2020, but will give you an insight into the type of study involved. You can find more information about the changes on the NMC website​​, or you can contact our Admissions team if you have any questions about applying.
