BSc (Hons) Nursing Studies (Child)

 

Working as an integral part of the health care team, Children’s Nurses deliver specialist nursing care to children and their families from birth to young adulthood. Children’s Nurses practice in a wide range of settings ranging from intensive care units and family homes to delivering care in global emergency situations.

Inter-professional learning with students from a range of health care professional courses will encourage your awareness of the roles and responsibilities of the wider multi-disciplinary team and foster team working skills.

As a student nurse, you will undertake practice placement in a variety of settings including the new Glasgow Children’s Hospital, community nursing and school nursing. These experiences will be supported by theoretical nursing knowledge and practical experiences developed in GCU’s state-of-the-art inter-professional clinical simulation centre.

l couldn’t have asked for a better place to learn. Without a shadow of a doubt I owe my career to GCU. The opportunities I had as a student were second to none. Not just through the lectures and seminars but the high-quality equipment and facilities students have access to such as the television and radio studios.
