Course summary

Ranked 11th in The Complete University Guide 2022, Nursing at Birmingham provides you with the opportunity to experience nursing in one of the largest health care regions in the UK. Delivered in partnership between the university and renowned Birmingham healthcare organisations, this course will prepare you for safe and contemporary practice and employment as a registered nurse in children's nursing practice. You will learn biological, pharmacological and social sciences, nursing theories, systems, processes and an advancing range of nursing skills that enable you to lead, manage and deliver effective person centered nursing practice. You will study medicines management including the completion of safe drug calculation.
