Opportunity to become a children’s nurse with Wrexham Glyndwr University Degree
Those interested in becoming a children’s nurse can now enrol on a new course at Wrexham Glyndwr University.
Children’s nursing is a rewarding profession caring for children, young people and their family, from birth to young adulthood.
The BN (Hons) Degree will prepare you with the knowledge and skills to become a graduate and NMC registered children’s nurse.
The degree, which is Registered Children’s Nurse is a brand new programme developed to meet the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) (2018) Future Nurse standards. The course consists of 50 per cent clinical practice and 50 per cent theory.
Wrexham Glyndwr has recently been ranked top in the UK for Adult Nursing for overall student satisfaction in this year’s National Student Survey (NSS). The University was also successful in gaining Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW) commissioning to launch an exciting group of new Nursing and Allied Health Practitioner education including the new Children’s Nursing course.
Programme Leader Karen Griffiths said: “There is a range of experience amongst the staff here that students will be able to draw upon, and this course opens up a real career pathway to becoming a children’s nurse.
“The curriculum is very much person-centred and there is a blended learning approach.”
As part of the course practice placements in a variety of hospital and community settings enable you to experience a range of learning opportunities. Support in placement is by practice supervisors and assessors along with an academic assessor and practice education facilitators.
Modules are designed to enable the integration of theory with practice. Family-centred and child-centred care is included throughout.
Child field specific learning from the beginning will give you the opportunity to learn about the care needs of children, young people and their families, along with shared learning between child, adult and mental health fields of nursing on common themes relevant for all.
The HEIW commission means that bursary funding may be available for eligible students who commit to working in Wales after completion of their studies. This bursary would cover the cost of their studies. Other prospective students may wish to fund their studies through a student loan.
