Professional Nursing (Children & Young People's) (February) at Queen's University Belfast - UCAS

Course summary

NB: This course commences in February 2025. This three-year degree programme integrates theory and practice, preparing our students to be world-class practitioners. Students will spend 50 per cent of their time in class learning the latest nursing theory and clinical skills, and 50 per cent of their time with one of our internationally-recognised training partners in a wide variety of clinical and community settings throughout Northern Ireland. Our highly-trained lecturing staff are actively engaged in areas of speciality practice, and our personal tutor system for student support is very well regarded. There are also opportunities for elective placements with one of our international partners in the final year of study. NB: Are you a graduate domiciled in Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland? Have you considered applying for the MSc Professional Nursing programme? The programme is only open to graduate applicants and takes two years to complete instead of the more familiar three year undergraduate route. This programme is fully funded by the Department of Health for Home students, including full fees and a bursary. It is the only pre-registration Nursing Masters programme offered on the island of Ireland. Upon successful completion of the MSc Professional Nursing degree you will graduate with a Masters degree and you will be eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). QUB offers this innovative pre-registration Nursing programme in the fields of Adult Nursing, Children and Young People's Nursing, Learning Disability Nursing and Mental Health Nursing.
