Accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a recordable qualification, this programme meets the aims of all four groups of children within the NHS at Home (DH2011) document.

The course covers the treatment of children with: acute and short term conditions; long-term conditions; disabilities and complex conditions, including those requiring continuing health care and neonates and life-limiting and life-threatening illness, including those requiring end of life care.

As a community children’s nurse you must be able to demonstrate flexibility and creativity, working collaboratively with children, young people and their families and demonstrating high quality practice leadership to maximise patient independence in collaboration with partner organisations. 

The specialist practice experience and theoretical learning provided by this course will enable you to deliver seamless, high quality, holistic care. You will use your existing skills, knowledge and experience to provide holistic nursing care to children, young people and their families at home, or close to home. The course will also equip you to lead and develop community children’s services.

Informed by the very latest developments, the course examines: the role of the Community Children's Nurse, transition care from children's to adult services and leading and developing CCN services for the future. You will explore the development of Continuing Health Care Funding for Children; children's palliative care; clinical supervision and risk management.
