Course outline

Looking after children in a hospital requires a great deal of dedication, care and understanding. You have to quickly gain the trust of both the child and their parents, displaying your knowledge and expertise whilst maintaining a friendly and supportive connection with your patient. If you're ready for the challenge, then we're here to ensure that you go on to a successful and rewarding career as a nurse working with children.

We'll help you improve your powers of observation and deduction, giving you the insight needed to make decisions into the best way to offer care to your patients. You'll have the opportunity to work with children in hospitals through our placement programmes, putting the skills you learn from our academic experts into practice. You will be given the attention you deserve at all times thanks to our student support mechanisms, enhancing your learning and providing the support you need. 

This course achieved a 92% overall course satisfaction rate in the 2016 National Student Survey (NSS).

2017 Entry

From 2017 the government will cease to provide bursaries for undergraduate NHS courses. Students will have access to the standard student support package of tuition fee loans and support for living costs, rather than getting an NHS grant. This information is based on the understanding provided by The Council of Deans for Health and may be subject to change as further details are released by the government.

How we can support you

If you enrol onto an undergraduate NHS programme in 2017, we’ll cover the costs of your:

  • Uniform
  • DBS check**
  • Occupational Health check
  • Travel costs for placements of up to £300 each year

This is in addition to any government support agreed.
