City’s child nursing degree prepares students for a fulfilling and rewarding career caring for children up to the age of 16 and supporting their families. Children’s nurses need to be versatile and resilient as they care for children with acute or long'term health problems, children presenting with mental'health issues, special needs and those who are terminally ill. Children’s nurses work in a range of health settings from hospitals and schools to patients’ homes, with the opportunity to work in rural, urban and overseas settings.
As a child nursing student at City you will benefit from a practical degree course, focused on preparing you for practice placements and your future career within the healthcare sector. You will combine theoretical study with clinical experience in a range of settings including acute care, hospitals, GP surgeries, nursing homes, private hospitals, patients’ homes and the community. Our placement partners include Barts and The London Children’s Hospital, which cares for over 40,000 children a year and the world famous Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Our on'campus facilities include a Clinical Skills Centre, designed to reflect a real'world healthcare environment where students can develop their knowledge and skills in a safe environment to prepare for practice placements.
The first year focuses on relationship'centred care and considers the psychological, social and biological factors influencing health. In the second year, you will continue to explore these themes in the context of acute and long'term care. You can also pursue specific clinical interests on a two week elective practice placement in addition to course clinical placements. In the third year, the emphasis is on leading and managing in professional practice. In the final year, the emphasis is on leading and managing in professional practice, alongside practice placements and the dissertation.
