This course provides you with the theoretical knowledge and practical experience needed to register as a children's nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
Children's nurses provide care for children and young people from birth to 18 years of age across settings, for example, hospitals, homes, and hospices. The role of the children's nurse includes promoting health and minimizing illness in collaboration with families. When providing nursing care for children, working with the family and consideration of their needs are essential.
Children's nurses work collaboratively with a range of professionals to meet the specific needs of children, young people, and their families wherever they are cared for.
Within our state-of-the-art simulation suites, our children's nursing students can further develop the skills required to care for children and families in a safe environment, which closely mimics a healthcare environment (hospital and home). Family role players are central to this learning experience.
