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 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 find the most effective methods of nursing a sick child, while looking at ways that childcare 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.
