You will spend time in a children’s hospice, a special school, A&E, a children’s walk-in centre and a neo-natal unit. These invaluable placements will enable you to build up a network of contacts and a greater appreciation of where your role a Specialist Community Children’s Nurse fits into the overall scheme of healthcare provision.
