Working with and caring for children and young people requires specialist knowledge and skills because their needs vary according to age, growth and stage of development. The needs of children, young people and their families are not only related to the science of nursing (the theory) but also to the art (practice and caring) of nursing.
A key element of nurse education concerns an ability to work alongside a broad range of health and social care professionals. Throughout the course you will study alongside others undertaking health related degrees delivered by BU. This includes students studying other fields of nursing, social work, midwifery, occupational therapy and physiotherapy.
The entry requirements for this course are: 104 - 120 tariff points from 3 A-Levels or equivalent qualifications. BTEC Extended Diploma of DMM. Offers will be subject and grade specific, particularly in the science subjects.
If English is not your first language, you will need to provide evidence that you can understand English to a satisfactory level. English language requirements for this course are normally:
IELTS (Academic) 6.0 with minimum 5.5 in each component, or equivalent.
The course is designed to help you meet the nursing needs of children, young people and their families, delivering health and care of the highest quality based on best evidence, in a safe and appropriate environment. Graduating successfully from the course will enable you to apply for professional registration with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC).
The BSc (Hons) Children´s and Young People´s Nursing course is part of the School of Health and Social Care Nursing Framework which offers BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing and BSc (Hons) Mental Health Nursing courses. Within the first year some units are common to all courses in the Nursing Framework with shared lectures.
