This multi-professional course is designed for qualified children's nurses wishing to advance their knowledge of the management of children with complex needs, life-limiting conditions and specialist care requirements.
It will provide students with the knowledge and skills to support families for whom the focus is providing care closer to home, enabling children to live at home and attend school with minimal hospital attendance.
You will develop knowledge and skills in decision making, law, ethics and multi-disciplinary teamwork, learning how to work with a wide range of services, both statutory and voluntary, for the benefit of the child and to further the agenda of integrated service provision.
Plus, you will have your professional competencies, as set out by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), assessed in theory and practice, and experience 40 days of practical clinical placements.
This Community Children's Nursing course is currently funded by the Workforce, Education and Development Services department of Welsh Government.
