Would you like a dynamic and challenging career as a children’s nurse? Children and young people’s nurses deliver care which is child centred within a family context. Children's nurses are able to understand the developmental needs of children from birth to transition into adult life and how this is affected by ill health. This three-year child nursing degree combines theory and practice in an innovative way, to focus on the care of children across a wide range of healthcare settings. Our nursing degrees prepare you for the challenges of modern healthcare through the right mix of knowledge, skills and experience. The theory you learn in the classroom is reinforced by practical learning on campus and work- based learning. Employers are keen to recruit our nursing graduates because they know they are well-prepared, confident, competent and safe practitioners. Your studies will be based in our state-of-the-art Clinical Simulation Centre. Role-play scenarios will prepare you for clinical practice and allow you to develop a wide range of practical skills. You’ll also undertake work placements in a wide variety of clinical settings at our partner health boards. Successful completion of this child nursing degree will allow you entry to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Register as a qualified children’s nurse and ready to embark on a rewarding career. Currently, if you are a UK student, the fees for your nursing course will be paid by the Welsh Government. USW’s Nursing degrees are based on our Glyntaff Campus. Glyntaff is surrounded by green open spaces. Our students say they love the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful views.
