Children's Nursing & Social Work at Edge Hill University - UCAS

Course summary

Care for children and young people through challenging times. Gain eligibility to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a qualified children’s nurse and apply for registration with Social Work England as a qualified social worker. Want to help children as they face illness, fight disease and recover from injury? Interested in protecting them from harm by supporting their social care needs, too? If you answered yes to these questions, our children’s nursing and social work degree is for you. This integrated Masters is delivered alongside our partners in the Cheshire & Merseyside Social Work Teaching Partnership and leads to eligibility for two professional awards. Together, we’ll prepare you for a career as a children’s nurse and social work practitioner in a range of health and social care settings. Finding your place in multidisciplinary teams and developing the right skills will be key. But to help you provide the most effective care we’ll also encourage you to explore the perspectives of service users, their families, and carers. We’ll look at case studies showing the complexities of children’s and young people’s health and social care needs. By the time you graduate, you’ll be familiar with ethical dilemmas and other challenges you may face.
