Many nurses may wish to undertake training for a different part of the nursing register at some point in their careers. This programme provides a conversion course for nurses who wish to move from one part of the nursing register to another.
Successful completion of the course will lead to a qualification in BSc (Hons) Children’s and Young People’s Nursing.
Acceptance on to the programme depends on a number of factors. For example:
- Initial field of registration
- A 2:2 honours degree or equivalent in Nursing
- The date of the applicant’s original registration
- The availability of adequate resources to enable the applicant to join the programme with advanced standing e.g. vacancies within programmes, or placements.
The duration of the course will depend on your previous qualifications and experiences. The average time for a programme leading to a second registration is normally 18 months. However, the team needs to be assured that you are able to meet all professional and academic requirements. This decision is based upon your recent experience and evidence of study.
