Who is it for?

The Postgraduate Diploma in Child Nursing is designed for students who already have a degree and are looking for progression and further challenges which can be fulfilled by undertaking a rewarding and lifelong career within the nursing profession.

Throughout the course you will develop your knowledge, skills and interests in both general medicine and surgery in addition to specialist areas. You will learn through a range of methods including academic study, simulated practice learning and clinical placements where you will have the opportunity to work alongside other health care professionals in a multidisciplinary team.

Objectives

The Postgraduate Diploma in Child Nursing prepares you for a fulfilling and rewarding career caring for children, and their parents, at different stages of the developmental spectrum who have had injuries, suffered accidents, acquired disease or have a range of healthcare needs.

Children’s nursing is a challenging and fulfilling profession. As a child nurse you need to be committed and dedicated with the willingness to give time to others with care and compassion. You will learn the skills of clinical decision-making that is supported by knowledge and experience of providing healthcare to a diverse population.

The course combines theoretical study with clinical experience gained at London’s leading hospitals, trusts and community settings. The School's facilities feature an excellent Clinical Skills Centre, including a simulated wards, where you can prepare for your practice experience. Whilst on clinical placements you will also benefit from exposure to the capital’s diverse population.

Placements

Half of your time as a student will be spent gaining practice experience through laboratory-based simulated practice and through clinical placements in health care settings.

Simulated Practice

Simulated practice is a significant component of your practice learning experience and will provide opportunities for you to rehearse a range of practical nursing skills and enact scenarios in a realistic, but safe simulated environment in our excellent clinical laboratories.

You will be encouraged to explore, experiment and engage in nursing activities with the lecturers. The sessions will help you to understand the rationale and evidence that you will need so you feel safe when providing hands-on care.
