Have you got a caring nature? Do you feel ready to dedicate yourself to nurturing and nursing children from the youngest ages to adulthood? 

If that sounds like you, there is now an opportunity to study for a BN (Hons) Degree at Wrexham Glyndwr University to become a Children’s Nurse.

Children’s nursing is a rewarding profession caring for children, young people and their family, from birth to young adulthood. 

Wrexham Glyndwr University will prepare you with the knowledge and skills to become a graduate and NMC registered children’s nurse. 

The BN (Hons) with 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.

It is an exciting time to join Wrexham Glyndwr as it has just 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.”

At Glyndwr University we pride ourselves on the support and guidance offered to students with an open-door approach. 

Throughout their studies each student will have a personal tutor who will support and guide them in their personal and professional development. 

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, for more information visit here.

Other prospective students may wish to fund their studies through a student loan. For more information, click here.

So if you can see a future for yourself as a children’s nurse, why not take the next step and apply today?
