About the Department
The Department of Child & Family Health aims to improve the health of children and their families through child-focused and family-centred education, research and practice. We are a team of around 25 staff incorporating tutors, lecturer practitioners, clinical teachers, lecturers, senior lecturers, and professors who teach across our pre- and post-registration courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
We offer two routes to registration as a Children’s nurse: Nursing with Registration as a Children’s Nurse BSc and Postgraduate Diploma Nursing with Registration as a Nurse (graduate entry). We also offer a large range of professional development modules, Masters degrees and research degree programmes. These include clinical specialisms in a range of areas across children’s nursing, family and public health.
We offer Specialist Community Public Health Nursing – Health visiting and School Nursing. These courses are for those already registered as a nurse and midwife who wish to develop public health roles. These programmes can be undertaken at undergraduate or postgraduate levels through full-time or part-time routes.
Research in our Department reflects the College strategy and Faculty research themes. This enables opportunities for collaboration within the Faculty, the wider College community, and with a range of external partners. You can view individual staff profiles for further details of current activity.
Our teaching and research enable the Department of Child & Family Health to develop and deliver excellent nurse education and research. This enables our students, the next generation of child and public health professionals, to provide high-quality care to children, their families and the communities in which they live.
