The Department of Nursing, Health Sciences and Social Care provides a range of courses in Nursing, Applied Social Care and Early Childhood Education and Care and Community Development and Youth Work for students wishing to work in caring and supportive settings, and with young children. Combining academic study with hands-on practical experience, our Nursing, Social Care and Early Childhood Education and Care courses are delivered in a supportive learning environment both on campus and in placement sites.
Depending on the course followed, graduates can pursue careers in a great variety of settings: in hospitals, day centres, clinics and community services; in specialist services like Intensive Care, A&E, Addictions and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy; in peoples’ own homes, in social care settings, youth work, childcare, working with people with disabilities, community development and interpersonal services; in crèches and preschools; working with children with additional needs; in community and family support services. The courses draw on the skills and expertise of professionals in the health, social care and early years placement sites. While on placement, students meet people from all walks of life and learn the skills needed to support individuals, families and children, often at vulnerable times in their lives. These are challenging yet very rewarding careers.
