The programme guide states: “This four-year honours degree will provide you with the skills and knowledge for a life-affirming career supporting the distribution of joy and cheer.
“As an Elf and Wellbeing Nurse, you will oversee the care and sustainable health practices in the supernatural habitat of a division of elite high-performance Elves.
“This course is suited to those with a caring nature, who are quick problem-solvers with a keen interest in a career in a very special and exclusive nursing discipline.
“This course is innovative in its approach, with a strong emphasis on practice-based learning, allowing you to apply your knowledge and learning as you progress through the course.”
It adds: “Note: As a qualified Elf and Wellbeing Nurse you will be bound by the Special Secrets Act (2006).”
Holly McSnowball, a service user and head of production at the doll division of toy production, Santa’s grotto, said: “The Elf and Wellbeing graduates from RGU provide a valuable service to allow us to continue to delight children around the world year-after-year.
“I think the placement provision really helps to allow them to hit-the-ground-running (sometimes literally) when they join us in a long-term position.”
The course is accredited by the Royal Society of Elf and Wellbeing, and graduates can also apply for membership of the Institute of Occupational Elf and Safety.
