Children's Nursing at Bangor University - UCAS

Course summary

Children and young people’s (CYP) nurses care for all ages, from new-born to adolescent, with a range of physical, emotional and mental health needs. CYP nurses also work closely with family members and carers to reduce the impact of being ill or in hospital. The course includes generic nursing topics and child field specific subjects and placements in a wide variety of settings including urban and rural, community, special care baby units, hospices and mental health. As a children’s nurse you’ll care for children across the age spectrum and with a wide variety of needs. You’ll also work in partnership with family members and carers to reduce the impact of being ill or in hospital and providing comfort and reassurances to patients and their parents or careers in difficult or stressful circumstances. The role is highly rewarding and can also be challenging in today’s fast changing health care environment. Working in collaboration with other healthcare professionals, children’s nurses work in a variety of settings that follow a patient’s journey away from home, close to home or in the home giving you real variety in your career. The course will prepare you to become a CYP nurse who is able to demonstrate critical thinking skills in relation to complex healthcare issues and the health and wellbeing of children, young people and their families. It will allow your compassion to thrive within an evidence-based approach and it will enable you to make a genuine impact on the health and wellbeing of babies, children, young people and their families. You’ll go on placements across all the three years of your course and experience a range of clinical areas across Wales such as hospitals, special care baby units, hospices, mental health services, community children’s nursing teams as well as specialised paediatric intensive care units in England. Elements of the course will be available through the medium of Welsh and there will be opportunities to experience bilingual practice in some parts of the region. For more information on the School's bilingual provision click here.
