Nurse training

Watch this Royal College of Nursing film to see why you should train to become a nurse at Evelina London.


Evelina London is the second largest children’s teaching hospital in London.

We train children’s nurses from London South Bank University (LSBU) and Kings College London (KCL) on a Bachelor of Science three-year (BSc) degree or Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) two year programme.

However, we do offer elective placements to student nurses from other universities.

All our student nurses rotate through different disciplines gaining a wide variety of learning opportunities in both acute and community settings.
