Learning outcomes for children's nursing students

Our learning outcomes for children’s nursing students are intended to set a standard for the level of knowledge and understanding of infant feeding that could be reasonably expected of a newly qualified children’s nurse.

The guidance document below introduces the learning outcomes, and makes suggestions for how these can be incorporated into children’s nursing studentsโ€™ undergraduate curricula. Supporting materials such as slide sets, guidance for lecturers and e-learning are planned. While there are no plans to provide full assessment and accreditation for these courses at this time, it is hoped that the learning outcomes will provide a stimulus to universities to start to consider what should be covered in relevant curricula and then to take action to make that a reality.

The learning outcomes are an expansion of our university programme, building on our success of developing an accreditaiton programme for pre-registration midwifery and health visiting programmes. Find out more about our university accreditation programme.
