Nursing Studies, Registered Nurse (Child)

If you are caring and enthusiastic about building positive relationships, this Child Nursing Studies course develops your talents to become a highly-skilled, compassionate member of the nursing profession. Children’s nurses provide specialised clinical care to new-born babies, children and young people and their families and also work closely with families, carers and other professionals to safeguard and protect children. On our Child Nursing Studies course you will be taught by professionals with expertise, enabling you to consolidate theory and practice. Through a variety of teaching, learning and assessment methods, you will gain a sound knowledge informed by research on which to underpin your nursing practice. At our Coach Lane campus, you will benefit from our Clinical Skills Centre, providing NHS-standard equipment and resources for simulation and practical skills training. This course has a very ‘hands-on’ element, with 50% of your learning being based within practice placements with local NHS Trusts, private sector healthcare and specialist providers, enabling you to take your theory into real-life settings. Our Child Nursing Studies degree ensures you will graduate as a skilled and knowledgeable children’s nurse, able to respond to healthcare needs, work collaboratively with other healthcare professionals and provide excellent and innovative care. Upon graduation you will obtain Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) registration as a qualified nurse ensuring you are ‘work ready’ and which allows you to apply for employment as a registered children’s nurse in the UK. In line with the principles and values which underpin the NHS constitution, the University expects all students undertaking programmes which lead to registration as a health professional to demonstrate the NHS values.
