Program description

Nursing with Registration (Child) BSc (Hons)

This degree prepares you for a fulfilling and rewarding career, focusing on specialist nursing care for children and young people who have a range of acute, long-term and complex healthcare needs.

You’ll combine theoretical study with clinical experience in a range of settings within the NHS, independent and voluntary sectors, and gain the knowledge to become a skilled communicator and a compassionate and open-minded nurse committed to delivering high-quality care to children.

Thanks to the long-standing reputation of our School of Nursing and Midwifery, established more than 50 years ago, you’ll benefit from a wealth of knowledge and experience as well as learn from accomplished academic staff with a variety of clinical expertise. And the support doesn’t stop there – while you’re on placement you will be guided, supervised and assessed by practice and academic staff.

You will also have the opportunity to work with students from other health and social care courses to deliver person-centred care and understand the impact of allied professions on the patient journey. Successful completion of the course prepares you to practise in the UK and overseas.

This course is only available for UK/EU students.
