Children’s nursing is a responsible and hugely valued career. You will care for children and young people and will also be required to provide support to their families. You will need to have strong verbal and non-verbal communication skills and work well as a team member. As a children’s nurse, you will face many difficult situations where parents will look to you for support. You will need to be dependable and mature, and be able to provide the high level of care required to help young people (and their families) get through some of the most difficult periods in their lives. You will be taught by respected academics who will encourage you to become the best you can be. As part of your learning, you will have access to the biggest neonatal intensive care unit in East Anglia and work alongside other health and medical students to help prepare you for your future career.
