The MSc in Children’s Nursing is designed for people who already have a degree and are looking for progression and further challenges which can be achieved by undertaking a rewarding and lifelong career within the nursing profession.

The course prepares you for an enjoyable and rewarding career caring for children, and their families, at different stages of the developmental spectrum who have acute and chronic illnesses, suffered injuries, had accidents and/or have a range of healthcare needs. Throughout the course you will develop your knowledge, skills and interests in a variety of settings including paediatric general medicine and surgery, paediatric / neonatal intensive care, the paediatric emergency department and the community.

Children’s nursing is a challenging but fulfilling profession. As a children’s nurse you need to be committed and dedicated with a willingness to give time to others with care and compassion. You will learn the skills of clinical decision-making that is supported by evidence, knowledge and experience of providing healthcare to a diverse population.

The course combines theoretical study with clinical experience gained at London’s leading hospitals, trusts and community settings. The School's facilities feature an excellent Clinical Skills Centre, including simulated wards, where you can prepare for your practice experience. Whilst on clinical placements you will also benefit from exposure to the capital’s diverse population.

Modules

This course is based on the theory of relationship centred care and the psychological, social and biological factors influencing health. These themes are explored in the context of acute and long-term care and later in the course there is an emphasis on leading and managing in professional practice. The course has three parts with two progression points which must be successfully completed in order to progress to the next part. The modular structure of the programme is developmental and students study at HE level 7 throughout the programme and are expected to demonstrate increasing levels of self-directed independent study as the programme progresses. Student independent learning time varies during the programme and is focused more in the theory modules and averages between 30-50 hours a week. All modules are compulsory.
