Children and young people’s nursing not only involves the child or young person but includes the wider family and community. Good verbal and non-verbal communication skills are vital, as well as the ability to engage with patients sensitively and minimise distress for all concerned.
You will deal with a diverse range of health and social problems which may include long term conditions, complex physical, congenital or genetic problems, as well as public health issues such as immunisation, trauma and mental health problems.
2020 entry requirements:
3 Highers at CCC, preferably including English and a science subject plus English, Maths and a science subject at National 5 (if not held at Higher).

Acceptance to all nursing and midwifery courses is subject to a health screening and satisfactory PVG clearance (previously an enhanced disclosure).
