This three-year full-time degree in Child Nursing leads to a professional nursing qualification and eligibility to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. This is a practical, patient-centred course with equal amounts of theory and clinical practice which enables you to experience different aspects of healthcare. You'll have the opportunity to work within areas such as the new children’s unit and the newly refurbished children’s Accident and Emergency area, as well as community settings in both urban and rural areas.

You will be supported in your learning by experienced children’s nursing practitioners who will help you gain skills in nursing in both hospital and community settings.
