About the Course

The Specialisation in Paediatric Nursing Studies is intended to meet the educational needs of nurses working in the various contexts of contemporary paediatric health care.

This course is intended to provide paediatric nurses with the knowledge and advanced skills needed to provide evidence-based care to infants, children, adolescents, and their families in a paediatric setting.

You will gain a thorough understanding of the scientific knowledge and research-based evidence that support paediatric nursing. You will apply this knowledge in clinical practise, focusing on children and families.

You will study this course over 12-weeks online, which will require approximately 10 hours of study time per-week including a two-hour online tutorial.

As the course is online you will have the flexibility to study when and at times that suit your work and personal life. Our online learning environment provides engaging and interesting lectures and discussion forums in bite-sized pieces and is available on your PC, laptop, or mobile device.

On completion, you may complete two further units over 12-weeks to earn a Graduate Certificate in Advanced Nursing (Paediatric Nursing) or expand your nursing career and study a Master of Nursing with IHM.
