Course content

Children’s nurses need to be able to demonstrate competence in the fundamentals of nursing care across people’s lifespan, with a particular focus on meeting the needs of children and families.

We recognise that as the context of healthcare delivery is changing, it is essential for nurses to be able to work flexibly, inter-professionally and collaboratively in a way that is meaningful and relevant.

Our curriculum is designed to give graduating Children’s Nurses the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to influence improvements in practice, and support them to develop their own professional responsibility towards advancing the profession.

If you have a relevant bachelor's degree, this three-year pre-registration Master's degree gives you the chance to undertake a Children’s Nursing course leading to registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. The course is available part-time and full-time on the Oxford campus.
