Course programme

Course overview

Students entering nursing are beginning a career opportunity in an ever developing area of healthcare. As the population's healthcare needs change, nurses must be ready to respond. These changes may be determined by government led initiatives, changing patterns of health and illness and advances in practice resulting from research. Nurses work within an inter-professional framework, liaising with other professionals to provide the best possible care for patients and clients.

Children's nurses care for babies, children and young people (from birth to about 18 years of age) and their families/carers. You will need to know how to minimise the impact of illness or hospital admission on a child, which will mean working in very close partnerships with parents, families and/or carers.
