About the Nursing (Blended Learning) Child (Hons) degree at University of Huddersfield
- You’ll have the opportunity to study to become a nurse in a flexible way, that fits around work and life.
- You’ll develop and practise your clinical skills in a safe environment in our fully-equipped simulated children’s ward using our patient simulators.
- Clinical placements provide opportunities for you to put what you’ve learnt into practice in a variety of acute settings including children's wards, accident and emergency departments and neonatal intensive care.
- Opportunities are available to work with specialist nurses in a range of community settings including GP surgeries, health centres, children's hospices, as well as mainstream and specialist schools.
- You’ll have the opportunity to hear the experiences and viewpoints from service users and carers, who are part of the Public Partnership Group.
From the very start of this course, you’ll get the chance to develop the vital skills, values and confidence you need to care for children, young people and their families whatever their circumstances, including those with acute illness, long-term conditions or those who need help to maintain their health. You’ll learn and develop both practical and theoretical skills in order to achieve your full potential as a children's nurse and meet the Nursing and Midwifery Council standards. After successfully completing the course you’ll be able to apply to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and work as a Registered Nurse for Children.
This course provides a flexible way to fit study around work and life, using mainly digital technologies, but still including practical, hands-on experience. Although the theoretical component is predominantly delivered online, you’ll attend the campus in Huddersfield (or similar venue close to your home) for a maximum total of four one-week blocks for simulation and skills training. You'll do this in each year of the course, providing the opportunity for you to practise skills in a safe and controlled environment. You’ll also undertake practice placements across the NHS and healthcare organisations in a setting close to home.
Possible career opportunities include working within local and national hospitals, as well as in the community. Child nurses also work in neonatal and paediatric intensive care areas, hospices, children’s community nursing teams and in regional children’s specialist centres.
After qualification there is also an extensive range of further professional development opportunities available, which may lead to possible careers as a health visitor or school nurse, as well as nurse specialist roles.
