Bournemouth University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This is a cross conversion course for qualified nurses wanting to undertake training for a different pathway of nursing, e.g. convert from a Adult Nurse to an Children's and Young People's Nurse.
Acceptance on to the programme depends on a number of factors, for example: initial field of registration, a 2:2 honours degree or equivalent in Nursing, the date of the applicant’s original registration and the availability of adequate resources to enable the applicant to join the programme with advanced standing e.g. vacancies within programmes, or placements.
The duration of the course will depend on your previous qualifications and experiences. The average time for a programme leading to a second registration is normally 18 months. Successful completion of the course will lead to a qualification in BSc (Hons) Children’s and Young People’s Nursing.
All statistics shown throughout this page are taken from Unistats, Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE), BU institutional data and Ipsos MORI (National Student Survey) unless otherwise stated. There was insufficient data to publish information specifically for this course. This is either because the course size is small or respondent numbers were low. Therefore, the data displayed is for all students in Adult Nursing.
The content of the units you will undertake will be dependent on your existing qualifications. Once you have applied for the course our team will discuss with you which units you will need to undertake to achieve this qualification.

Occupational Health (OH) Checks
Nursing is physically and mentally demanding and you will need to be mentally and physically able to undertake your chosen course. Places are offered subject to passing an OH check, and this will be carried out at the University Hospital Southampton. Health conditions need to be dealt with on an individual basis e.g. deafness, blindness, eczema (or other dermatological allergic reactions) on exposed areas, epilepsy, back problems, or mental health conditions, eating disorders and other disabilities. These do not automatically exclude you but please ensure that you fully disclose your condition to OH. The University can then consider the recommendations made by OH and whether reasonable adjustments can be made to support you on your chosen course. If you require more guidance please contact us for more information.
You will be required to provide a record of your immunity status or be vaccinated or have the required blood tests. Please see this table for the required immunisations. You may need to ask your GP or current OH department or find your childhood vaccination record for details of your past immunisation records. You should be aware that there may be charges made (for which you will be liable) relating to your gaining the appropriate immunity required prior to starting your training programme.
