Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

Studying children’s nursing at UEA prepares you for a career that can be as varied or specialist as you choose.  Children’s nurses work with children and young people between the ages of 0-19 years, and on occasion up to 24 years of age, whilst also working in partnership with families.  Your career could see you providing health care for children and young people during and following an acute illness or injury, living with a disability or complex long-term health condition and supporting children to stay mentally and physically well.  Our innovative, accelerated course is ideal if you already have a degree and are looking for a fast-track into the nursing profession. Exposing you to theory and practice, our Master’s programme will build on your prior life experience, graduate attributes and enable you to qualify as a Children’s Nurse in just two years.
