About

The Children's Nursing course at the London South Bank University will equip you with the knowledge and skills to assess and manage the nursing care needs of children and families, including those with acute and long-term conditions. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Children's nurses care for children and young people from birth to 18 years old in hospital and in the community. Children and young people can present with a range of conditions, from birth defects, accidents and injuries, to life-limiting or critical illnesses or which can result in the death of a child. Children's nurses work in partnership with the child/young person, their parents and carers, involving them in the planning and delivery of their child's care and treatment. Children's nurses, in collaboration with other professionals, strive to promote health in children and young people to ensure they enter into adulthood in good health. 

The Children's Nursing course at the London South Bank University  will also develop your abilities to consider the wider aspects influencing children's health needs, preparing you for future leadership in a changing and challenging health care system.

Employability

Day-to-day duties of a children's nurse are varied; from administering drugs and injections, recording observations on vital signs such as pulse and temperature, to explaining treatments and procedures to gain consent from parents/guardians.

With experience, there are multiple opportunities for specialisation as your career progresses – such as: counselling, intensive care, cancer care, child protection, ambulatory care, orthopaedics and asthma.
