Overview

Nursing is a challenging but rewarding career that'll change lives, including your own. As a children and young people's nurse, you'll play your part in improving access to healthcare, wellbeing, social inclusion and quality of life.

Working as part of an inter-professional team in hospitals, schools, and family homes and across the community, children's nurses provide specialist healthcare and support for children, young people and their families.

Careers / Further study

Registered nurses are in demand across the UK and our graduates enter careers in a variety of roles for the NHS, as well as private and voluntary sector employers, in community and hospital settings.

Graduates of the Nursing (Children and Young People) (Hons) course from University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) go on to work with children and young people across a large range of hospital settings and services.

Others work in the community in school nursing, health visiting and children's community nursing, care for children and young people after open-heart surgery, or work in the homes of those with diabetes or cancer.
