Subject

Children's nursing

**Why choose this course?**

This course will enable you to become a registered children's nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). It will provide you with the skills and knowledge to provide best evidence-based care for a child or young person (from birth to young adulthood) in partnership with their family, in hospital and community settings.

This course is taught in partnership with St George's, University of London, where you'll benefit from combined expertise, facilities and interpersonal learning. You'll have a wide range of placement opportunities at London's leading NHS hospitals including Great Ormond Street, St George's, St Helier, Royal Marsden, Chelsea and Westminster and Royal Brompton. In addition, you will have community placements.

You will develop your clinical skills in our state-of-the-art simulation suites with child role-players, an initiative recognised as highly effective in the Student Nursing Times Awards (2017). You'll be taught by a dynamic teaching team who are nationally and internationally recognised - they have contributed to key text books and achieved awards for their excellence in learning and teaching.

Throughout the course you will engage with service users, practising nurses and other healthcare professionals - in placements, classes and online learning. There is also an opportunity for you to develop your nursing skills working abroad.
