Working as an integral part of the health care team, Children's Nurses deliver specialist nursing care to children and their families from birth to young adulthood. Children's Nurses practice in a wide range of settings ranging from intensive care units and family homes to delivering care in global emergency situations.

Inter-professional learning with students from a range of health care professional courses will encourage your awareness of the roles and responsibilities of the wider multi-disciplinary team and foster team working skills.

These experiences will be supported by theoretical nursing knowledge and practical experiences developed in GCU's state-of-the-art inter-professional clinical simulation centre.

You will have the opportunity to undertake international placements; in recent years our students have embarked on placements in Nepal, Sri Lanka, Sweden and Bangladesh.
