This three year programme will enable you to become a safe, reflective practitioner who is able to deliver care as part of a multi-disciplinary team as well as with other agencies. You will learn how to critically evaluate nursing practice, demonstrate a sound knowledge base of children’s nursing, and understand the shift in focus of care from a disease to a health orientation. You will gain the knowledge to critically analyse the role of the children’s nurse and evaluate episodes of care. You will participate in family-centred care, analyse complex issues utilising problem solving approaches, recognise the cultural diversity of children and their families and analyse the impact of health care practice.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
This is the subject with the most degree graduates in 2012 - over 14,300. We'll always need nurses in this country, so it's no surprise to see that the very large majority of nursing graduates go on to become nurses, and that starting salaries are pretty competitive. There are lots of different specialties to choose from (including midwifery), and the most common by far is adult nursing, but the typical end result for graduates is the same – they go on to become nurses (or midwives). That’s not to say that you can’t do anything else. Some nursing graduates get other jobs - usually, but not always, in health or caring professions, or management.
