This Children´s Nursing Degree course prepares you for registration with the NMC (Nursing and Midwifery Council).
All the nursing programmes share a common structure of two modules a year for the three year period. Each module requires you to work with nursing students from other fields for a significant proportion of your school-based learning. You are required by the NMC to achieve a total of 4600 learning hours divided equally between theory and practice.
During year one you have a high level of contact time with lecturers which gradually decreases over the 3 year period as you become a more independent learner.
The course uses a blended learning approach which involves lectures, seminars, student-led learning, simulated practice and Enquiry Based Learning (EBL). A majority of the learning will take place in small tutorial groups, exploring different real life nursing scenarios in packages of learning. For each package you will identify issues raised for an individual, gather relevant information to address the issues and agree an action plan to meet any unmet needs.
