About the course
Few career paths can be as challenging or rewarding as nursing. Half study, half mentored clinical placement, our degree offers you a unique, professional insight into the diverse care needs of both healthy and sick children and their families. On this course, you will learn to work and communicate with children and their families – often in difficult, demanding situations. You are encouraged to identify and practice the most effective methods of nursing a sick child, while looking at ways that caring for children could be improved.
This three-year programme will equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to deliver high-quality, evidence-based health care. Through the academic dimension of the course, you will gain key, valuable theoretical skills which you will apply in a working environment. The placements you undertake on this course will teach you clinical practice skills which are supported by timetabled activities in a simulated environment. Upon graduation, you will be awarded an academic and professional award enabling you to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a qualified registered nurse.
How will the planned funding changes affect me?
From 2017/18, NHS bursaries for students will no longer be available on this course. Instead, you will be able to apply for a student loan to support your studies. To find out more about how this will affect you, please click here for full details.
