Our course will develop your understanding of child health, so that you can work effectively in services for children and young people.
Already a nurse or midwife working with infants, children or young people, you’ll develop your expertise through a choice of optional modules, which include antenatal and newborn screening, and intensive care nursing. As well as this, you'll be able to sharpen your research skills by completing our Research Methodology module.
Our modules are designed to enhance your knowledge and clinical skills in your specific area of practice. Take up to three years to complete our part-time course and by the end of it, you’ll be able to influence practice for the benefit of children and families in your care.

Completing this course will give you the chance to progress further in your career, or to pursue postgraduate study such as our MSc Children and Young People.
We'll assess your progress in a number of ways, including case studies, portfolios, case presentations, and the development of individual learning plans (with support from your mentor).
The Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care is the largest in ARU, with over 7,000 students. Our Faculty is teeming with expertise and primed to meet the demand for creating health professionals, teachers, doctors, scientists and educators for the three districts we serve: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough.
We have been training undergraduates for professional roles for over 25 years, with a reputation for quality, dedication and ambition balanced with student satisfaction.
We know that to give our students the very best experiential learning, prior to getting into the workplace, simulation is second to none, for safe, realistic, learning environments. We have invested heavily in purpose built simulated wards, science labs and skills space, to support our students through their learning.
Our campus is close to the centre of Cambridge, often described as the perfect student city.
Our striking, modern campus sits by the riverside in Chelmsford's University and Innovation Quarter.
