Students studying child nursing will develop an understanding of the developmental, physical and social needs of children in hospital and at home.
Child nurses will work with other members of the multidisciplinary team during placements in hospital wards, community settings and in high dependency areas. They also work with the parents and other family members of the children in their care.
The role of the child nurse ranges from promoting health, minimising illness and protecting children who are vulnerable.
The nursing curriculum is currently under review, and is due to be approved during 2011.
Practice placements are provided in Tayside and Fife and students are allocated the majority of their placements in the vicinity of their term-time address.
It will be necessary for some clinical experience to be gained in placements further afield in order to provide students with exposure to a rich and diverse clinical experience.
