This curriculum will offer placement learning opportunities throughout Northamptonshire and beyond. Taught elements will include: public and population health; assessing planning and providing care; leading nursing care; working in teams and coordinating and improving quality of care. There will be an acute hospital and a community placement at each stage of your course. The community placement will be with the Health Visitors, School Nurses and Children’s Community Nurse/Complex Needs Teams. The acute placements are in day surgery, outpatients, paediatric assessment units, general paediatric wards and in Neonates or paediatric emergency departments. Once qualified as a Children’s nurse your qualification can take you anywhere in the world. You can work in general paediatrics to consolidate your knowledge. You can work in specialised areas such Neonates, Paediatric Emergency Departments or a children’s hospital. You may wish to work in Health Visiting, School Nursing or Children’s Community services. All of your essential reading will be available from the University's Library which means that all your essential course reading materials are available for free when you start with us.
