Studying children’s nursing at the University of Brighton enables you to work closely with children, young people and their families as part of a versatile team of health and social care professionals including doctors, psychologists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists. You will learn how to tailor individual care for children with a range of clinical needs. We will support you in becoming a caring and compassionate professional who delivers skilled, evidence-based care in partnership with patients families, and communities. Our focus on interdisciplinary enriches your experience while also preparing you for professional practice. You will also have the opportunity to experience nursing abroad through our international placements. To ensure you can confidently apply theory to healthcare practice, you will spend 50% of your year on placements with local NHS trusts in a variety of healthcare settings and simulate nursing situations in our state of the art clinical skills and simulation suites. Your teaching will be based at our Brighton, Falmer campus and there are varied placements across Sussex in both acute and community settings. The recognition that patients come first in everything the NHS does, and the values of the NHS constitution – respect, dignity, compassion and working together for patients – are embedded in our curriculum. This course meets the NMC 2018 education standards and course graduates are eligible for registration.
