Professional Practice: Children's Nursing PgDip / MSc
The portfolio of pathways focusing on children and young people is designed to foster a purposeful and child-centred approach that makes a significant impact to children's services and student career satisfaction.
Modules are delivered as standalone at both undergraduate and masters level and you can access a number of modules within the children's nursing portfolio. In keeping with a philosophy of inter-professional working, a number of modules are designed to meet the education needs of the inter-professional team.
The course framework offers a flexible approach to the sequence and time-frame in which modules can be taken. This is negotiated on an individual basis with the pathway advisors. Please see the Continuing Professional and Personal Development (CPPD) prospectus for further details or contact Kerry Shewan: email@example.com.
