Northumbria University has an established reputation for excellence and innovation in nursing education. We are working closely with our NHS partners to deliver a pre-registration Nursing Science course that embodies the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s ‘FutureNurse’ standards, to equip you to lead your profession. The BSc Nursing Science (Child) course will prepare you to become a Registered Nurse who is capable to prioritise people, practice effectively and promote professionalism. Studying within the requirements of the new NMC standards means that you will have the ability to demonstrate critical thinking skills in relation to complex healthcare issues and the health and wellbeing of children, young people and their families. You will study partially at our Coach Lane Campus, and partially on placement, with both strands running alongside each other to give you an integrated approach to theory and practice. You will study within the standard university semester system, allowing time during the Easter and summer breaks for additional projects and internships – or simply a well-earned rest. This programme will equip you to be curious, creative and collaborative in your care. 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.

Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods, which may include lectures, seminars, problem-based workshops, case discussions, practical activities, group work and tutorials. Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that will underpin your learning journey. You will have access to a Guidance Tutor with whom you can discuss any academic issues. Extensive feedback from both tutors and peers is built into the course.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
