On this BN degree in child nursing you will learn that children’s bodies can behave very differently to those of adults.

Symptoms in children can often be sudden and extreme.

Also, illness or injury in children can have long-term consequences for their future development.

In addition, children generally cannot express themselves as clearly as adults, so good communication skills are central to doing well on the course.

Throughout this child nursing degree you will benefit from high-tech facilities and top academics that will support you all the way to graduation.

You’ll also benefit from the latest in scientific knowledge, thanks to the cutting-edge research that we conduct. But it doesn’t end there…

All our courses are values-based, which means that you will be expected to identify closely with your patients and their families; an attribute that is especially important in child nursing.

Programme structure

This BN child nursing degree gives you the optimum blend of academic study and practical experience.

The child nursing course is set out as half theory and half practice to ensure proper preparation and assessment in both areas.

You will learn a lot of your skills whilst on practice placements, which take place across a whole spectrum of healthcare settings; helping you to become a true all-rounder in your profession.
