Nursing (Children) - University of East Anglia

**About This Course** Train to excel in an important and highly valued area of nursing. As a children’s nurse you could have an incredibly positive impact on the health and wellbeing of young people, from newborns to 19-year-olds. On this course you’ll discover the health and wellbeing needs of children and young people, and learn how to give growing minds and bodies the care and support they need. You’ll explore developmental anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology, and discover the emotional and social development needs of children and young people too. You’ll learn how care for the unwell, as well as how to promote healthy development and prevent physical and mental ill health. We are ranked 5th in the UK for nursing (Complete University Guide 2019) and the course is fully approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council. **Overview** Your Children’s Nursing degree will prepare you for essential nursing practice, as well as for specialist areas such as long-term conditions and complex and disabling healthcare issues. This includes conditions and challenges that are specific to young people. It also includes mental health care, as younger people living with long-term conditions are far more vulnerable to developing emotional disorders. Alongside this you’ll learn to work in close partnership with the families and carers of children in your care. As well as learning how to look after children who are unwell, you’ll also learn how to help foster healthy lifestyles in patients’ early years and adolescence, contributing to their health and wellbeing well into adulthood. Your course will feature a 50/50 balance between theory and practice. Throughout the course you’ll learn through first-hand practical experience. You’ll also work in collaboration with other healthcare students. This hands-on and collaborative approach is key to helping you achieve the best physical, emotional health and wellbeing outcomes. You will graduate able to meet the physical, emotional and social development needs of children and young people, with a variety of clinical conditions and complex health challenges, in a wide range of healthcare settings.
