About this course
This BSc Child Nursing degree will give you the wide-ranging skills needed to provide evidence-based and compassionate nursing care to children. You'll learn how children's health needs can be very different to those of adults. You'll also develop advanced communication skills, focused on paediatric nursing.
While at Southampton, a world-leader for nursing, you'll study:
the science that underpins nursing
the evidence base behind the nurse's role
how nurses promote health and help people maintain health and well-being
You'll develop practice skills through a range of nursing placements, and your learning will be further supported through simulated practice and clinical skills teaching.
Practice placements will normally be undertaken in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight in a mixture of hospital and community settings across 6 trusts.
You'll also learn with and from students of other health professions in both theory and practice.
To prepare you for your future role, the programme will help you to:
develop skills in assessment, decision making and managing complexity across a range of healthcare environments
understand the nature of health needs within a global context
become confident in embracing the technology and innovation that will be needed to meet people's future health needs
