The Postgraduate Diploma in Perioperative Children’s Nursing will prepare you to exercise an advanced level of clinical judgment and practice – beyond what is required of a registered general nurse (RGN) – in your specialist area of perioperative children’s nursing.
The programme aims to assist you in taking a leading role in advancing and developing nursing and midwifery in this area, and effecting policy change in professional practice and health service provision.
The programme is delivered part-time over one year, with an option to complete the programme over a period of up to three years if necessary. Once you have successfully completed this postgraduate diploma you may decide to progress to Year 2 of the Masters in Science (MSc) Nursing, in your chosen specialist area.
