University of Bolton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
As a children’s nurse you can make a huge difference to the health and wellbeing of children and young people. Offered in partnership with the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, the University of Bolton’s Nursing (Children) degree aims to give you the experience and skills to join this demanding yet rewarding career.
The University of Bolton’s Nursing (Children) degree, offered in partnership with Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, is designed to prepare you for a successful career caring for people under 18. Also known as a paediatric nurse, a children’s nurse is a key member of a multidisciplinary team of professional and medical staff that includes doctors, health visitors, healthcare assistants, hospital play staff, social workers and psychologists. There is a shortage of qualified nurses in the UK, so the career opportunities are excellent.
You’ll spend 50% of your time in clinical practice placements at our partner Trust and study at the University will complement and enhance your learning in the workplace. We’ll support you as you learn to care for children with acute and long-term illnesses, in hospital and at home, and gain expertise in health promotion and disease prevention.
Together with our partner Trust, we’ll work to prepare you to become a confident, professional nurse, able to deliver and lead the care of children within an ever changing health and social care environment. On successful completion of the nursing qualification, you’ll possess the knowledge and skills you need to perform as an independent, highly competent, compassionate nurse who can be trusted to maintain professional standards and assure the protection of the public.
