Program overview

First-year modules aim to provide the core foundation skills for children’s nurses to work within health and social care settings. There is an emphasis on the acquisition of knowledge and understanding of anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and social sciences. The second year aims to build upon the knowledge and skills gained in the first, focusing on the development of professional skills and the application of ethical principles to rational decision making. During the final year of the degree, students can study the theory behind leading and managing complex children’s nursing care, and explore the theory and practice of innovative and transformational change in practice for their final project. Modules can include Personal Development and Resilience; Fundamental Nursing Care; Person-centred Holistic Children’s Nursing; Promoting Health and Preventing Ill Health; Assessing Needs, Planning and Coordinating Care; and Healthcare Sciences. The course is offered over three academic years, consisting of 45 weeks of study per year, using a range of teaching and learning styles. Students spend half of their time studying at the University and half of their time in practice gaining experience in child nursing.
