If you are an empathetic, kind and caring person looking for a rewarding career, then children’s nursing could be for you.
You’ll learn from our experienced lecturers and technicians using state-of-the-art simulation facilities, coupled with time out on clinical placement. This combined learning approach of theory and practice will prepare you to provide safe, compassionate care and become a confident nurse.
Why study this subject?
Caring for one of the most important people in someone’s life, their child, is a big responsibility, yet very fulfilling job. Children and young people need nurses who understand their particular needs and can work in partnership with them and their families.
No two days within this job are the same – paediatric nursing can take you from the intensive care of a new-born baby with breathing problems, to looking after a six-foot tall adolescent whose leg has been broken. It can also cover a range of settings, from the hospital to the child’s own home.
To support your studies, the UK Government are continuing to provide children’s nursing students with a payment of at least £5,000 a year which will not need to be paid back. Find out more about the NHS Learning Support Fund.
Once you graduate from this course, you’ll be able to join as a Registered Nurse with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC), which enables you to practice in the UK.
Why study at Buckinghamshire New University?
At Buckinghamshire New University, from your very first welcome, you’ll find yourself surrounded by friendly, like-minded students and staff – all passionate about nursing and healthcare.
We’ve been running nursing programmes for many years and students benefit from an excellent standard of teaching provided by staff from the University. Our lecturers maintain close links with practice, ensuring that the programme is always kept up to date.
You will receive personal tutoring and also be able to take part in our annual one-day inter-professional conference, focused on safeguarding. In addition, guest speakers regularly deliver sessions for students within the University to ensure we give a diverse range of views and experiences to our students.
At BNU, we recognise roles in this field are hands-on – that’s why you’ll take part in simulated learning experiences throughout the course using our specialised facilities available within our two campuses dedicated to nursing (Uxbridge and Aylesbury). This will enable you to recreate authentic scenarios and practise your skills in a safe environment.
What facilities can I use?
We utilise state-of-the-art simulation facilities for learning, development and practicing of skills – our purpose-built wards include real equipment, just like you’d find in hospital.
Simulation is an important aspect of our nursing and healthcare programmes. You will regularly spend time in the simulation labs, taking part in realistic scenarios to practise a broad spectrum of technical skills in a safe and supportive environment.
Both our Uxbridge and Aylesbury campuses offer these facilities to students. Between our Uxbridge and High Wycombe campuses we provide a free campus-link bus service, allowing you to be able to use everything our High Wycombe Campus has to offer too.
What will I study?
We believe in giving you the best chance for employment when you graduate, so our courses are carefully designed to ensure that you’re equipped with everything you need to start your career.
During your time on the programme, you will understand the theory behind diagnosis that can help you to make crucial decisions when looking after a patient. You will be able to lead changes in practice, improving the quality of delivery of care.
On placement, you’ll be able to put your theory into practice where you’ll be mentored in the art of patient care.
