Keele University School of Nursing & Midwifery offer this pathway as an NMC approved, full-time one-year Specialist Community Nursing programme. Read more

Overview

Keele University School of Nursing & Midwifery offer this pathway as an NMC approved, full-time one-year Specialist Community Nursing programme: District Nursing. Specialist Community Nurses provide up-to–date, specialist and highly technical care to patients in their own environments as well as supporting families and carers. As a district nurse today you need to be highly skilled and educated to manage the changing demographics of communities and populations you will work within; you will be expected to lead teams of both qualified and support staff in a community setting. Recent government policy outlines a call to action and model for district nursing services and this award, providing a qualification in Specialist Community Nursing (District Nursing Pathway), is timely to support this, leading to a recordable specialist qualification with the NMC.

See the website https://www.keele.ac.uk/pgtcourses/specialistcommunitynursing-districtnursingpathway/

Course Aims

The course has been designed to produce specialist community nursing practitioners who are safe, competent, and professional, to lead district nursing in a community nursing setting. This includes meeting Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) standards for Specialist Community Nursing, Education and Practice. You will develop your leadership skills whilst on the programme, so that you are able to plan and lead services and initiatives which promote health, support long-term conditions, and provide specialist nursing care, including community practitioner prescribing as applicable to your role. You will achieve the recordable qualification through the Postgraduate diploma; however, there is the opportunity to undertake a dissertation through a part-time route to convert this post-graduate diploma to a Master’s Degree.

A new vision developed for District Nursing (DH 2013) Care in local communities: a new vision and model for district nursing will underpin the content and delivery of the pathway with a focus on 'Compassion in Practice' underpinning the new model focussing on:
- Population and case load management
- Support and care for patients who are unwell, recevoering at home and at end of life
- Support and care for independence

The aim of this programme is to support the development and enhancement of essential knowledge and skills in the registered practitioner to equip them for a career in specialist community nursing. This will be actualised through building upon the theoretical and clinical basis of their specialised area of practice, through delivery of a cohertent programme of study.

The District Nursing pathway will have a contemporary focus and is designed to meet the requirements of the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) Standards for Specialist Education and Practice (UKCC 2001).

The programme will support students in applying their skills of critical reflection to enhance their professional, personal and academic development. It will encourage the development of sound District Nursing practice based on the critical application of research and evidence and will introduce students to theories and practice of leadership and partnership working.

Additional Costs

Successful completion of the Postgraduate Diploma will lead to the NMC approved specialist and registerable qualification ‘Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (Health Visiting)’, ‘Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (School Nursing)’ or the Specialist Community Nursing (District Nursing), depending upon the route that the student registers for.

Students who have met the requirements for the award of a Postgraduate Diploma will be eligible to proceed into year 2, onto the Masters’ award – subject to the rules of progression. The award of an MSc Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (Health Visiting or School Nursing) requires successful completion of the Professional Practice dissertation (MSc route 1) or the Faculty dissertation module (MSc route 2), on a part-time basis.

The Specialist Community Nursing (District Nursing) programme will share modules with the P.G Dip/MSc Specialist Community Public Health Nursing Programme. This will enhance Inter-professional learning with other community specialist nurses working in primary care.

Training and support

The MSc by Research in Nursing Studies provides students with an advanced understanding of research design, data collection and data analysis issues in nursing.

The programme is designed for qualified practitioners and graduates and enables students to develop their understanding of debates about research, evidence and practice in relation to nursing and related fields.

The distinctive features of this degree include:

  • integration of generic social science and discipline-specific nursing studies research training and development;
  • social science approaches to research training in nursing studies; and
  • close links with other disciplines including medicine.

The PhD/MPhil programme is an advanced research degree enabling you to conduct in-depth independent research on a topic of your choice.

Normal progression for PhD/MPhil in nursing involves spending the first year preparing for the main research work; taking research training courses, reviewing literature, and developing your research proposal.

Progression to year two of the programme is dependent on a satisfactory outcome from a review board. Typically, the second year is spent doing the body of the research, usually empirical data collection and analysis, and the third year is spent completing the analysis and writing the thesis.

You will be able to attend a wide range of postgraduate seminar courses from across the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences. There is the opportunity to attend other courses in Nursing Studies as well as a wide range of postgraduate seminar courses within the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences and related disciplines across the University.

Nursing studies PhD and MPhil students join a 50-year tradition of scholarship. Our students share courses with others from a wide variety of disciplines.

Those doing higher degrees by research usually undertake research training courses, as well as carrying out their own research. PhD students normally have two supervisors, one of whom may be from a different discipline relevant to your interests.

Designed for registered nurses, these programmes will develop your knowledge, skills and professional confidence to integrate theory, practice and research to improve your nursing care and patient outcomes. Read more

Designed for registered nurses, these programmes will develop your knowledge, skills and professional confidence to integrate theory, practice and research to improve your nursing care and patient outcomes.

Responsive to current demands of practice, our courses will give you a deeper understanding of pathophysiological concepts and current nursing practice issues.

Develop your ability to carry out advanced assessments on patients to improve your clinical reasoning. Enhance your skills in locating, analysing, evaluating and applying information and research to your everyday work.

To study these programmes at the Graduate School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health you must be a registered nurse with a current practising certificate from the Nursing Council of New Zealand. You also need a Bachelor's degree from a New Zealand tertiary institution.

The level at which you study will depend on your previous academic achievements and chosen professional direction.

Workload

As a guide, for each 30-point course you take at the Graduate School, you should allocate around 10 hours per point for self-directed study, research, assessments and attendance at Schools.

If you’re studying full time, you can expect a workload of 40 hours of study time a week for much of the year. Part-time students doing one course per trimester will need to allocate approximately 20 hours of study a week. Make sure you take this into account if you are working full time.

How you'll study

Through a blend of research, class work and clinical experience, our academic team will support and work with you throughout your study, both face-to-face and through internet-based technology. You'll study a combination of core and elective courses, with both coursework and thesis-based research options at Master’s level.

Each course is made up of several ‘block schools’, with each block held over one to four days. They're a mix of lectures, tutorials and small group activities that give you time to study and access to staff for advice and guidance.

Held at Wellington Regional Hospital, the schools are a great opportunity for you to network with your peers and other health care experts—to share ideas and strategies for learning, identify areas for change and assess your progress.

Study while you work

Our part-time programme options make it easy for you to learn while you're working. We'll help you integrate academic life with work and family through our flexible delivery models that allow you to learn at home or on campus.

The distance component supported by Blackboard forms part of your courses and supports the development of the content delivered in the School.

Master of Nursing Science

The Master of Nursing Science is made up of two parts. In Part 1, you’ll gain an understanding of applied pathophysiology and develop advanced assessment and clinical reasoning skills. You’ll complete two further courses from an approved range, in an area of specialist practice or other focus of your choice.

After completing Part 1 and with the permission of the head of school, you can begin Part 2 with either a coursework or research focus.

If you choose to focus on coursework, you’ll complete a research review, practice project and further taught courses.

With a research focus, you’ll complete a research methods course and undertake your thesis—an advanced research project that contributes to nursing knowledge.

Nurse prescribing and nurse practitioner pathways

There are also two optional pathways within the Nursing Science programme: the nurse prescribing pathway or the nurse practitioner pathway.

Nurse prescribing pathway

The nurse prescribing pathway gives you the skill set needed for a prescribing role in your practice. You’ll take a set of four core courses including clinical pharmacology and conclude with a Nurse Prescribing practicum (HLTH 529) which will help you prepare for the Nursing Council of New Zealand registration process.

The entry requirement into HLTH 529 is at least a B grade for all prerequisite courses.

The Nursing Council of New Zealand requires that the nurse:

  • be a registered nurse with a current NCNZ practicing certificate
  • have at least three years equivalent full time practice in the clinical area intending to prescribe in, with one year of this in New Zealand
  • work within a multidisciplinary team
  • have the support of a clinical mentor who is a designated authorised prescriber and has experience mentoring
  • have the support from their employer to complete this course and support for ongoing professional development
  • identify a clinical area of practice and have up to date clinical knowledge relevant to this area of practice.

See the NCNZ website or contact the programme director for more information.

Nurse practitioner pathway

The nurse practitioner pathway has a distinctive structure within the Master of Nursing Science and gives you the knowledge and skills of an advanced health professional.

You will need to complete six core courses and two pre-approved elective courses. Your elective courses must support your development as a nurse practitioner and need to be approved by the programme director.

At least a B grade for all prerequisite courses is required in order to progress to the Nurse Practitioner Practicum (HLTH 531).

The Master of Nursing Science qualification meets the Nursing Council of New Zealand stipulated requirements for Nurse Practitioners.

Postgraduate Diploma in Nursing Science

You can complete a Postgraduate Diploma in Nursing Science on its own, but after graduating you may wish to apply for admission to the Master of Nursing Science programme. Your postgraduate diploma can be credited towards the Master’s, with exemptions given for the courses you have already completed.

The nurse prescribing pathway can also be completed as part of the Postgraduate Diploma in Nursing Science.

Postgraduate Certificate in Nursing Science

You can complete a Postgraduate Certificate in Nursing Science on its own, but after graduating you may wish to apply for admission to the Master of Nursing Science or Postgraduate Diploma in Nursing Science programme. Your postgraduate certificate can be credited towards either programme, with exemptions given for the courses you have already completed.

Nurses today need to be able to demonstrate competence in nursing care across the patient’s lifespan. To deliver this, they need to be able to work flexibly, inter-professionally and collaboratively in a dynamic and ever changing health care arena.

Our nursing programme has been written to take account of the key drivers in health care at local, national and international levels and was developed in partnership with our clinical partners, students, service users and carers.

During each year of the programme you will learn alongside colleagues in all fields of nursing, and will work with peers from the MN and the undergraduate nursing programme. The course is designed so that you will acquire in-depth knowledge and understanding which gives you specific skills, knowledge and competences to work within a variety of health-care settings. There is increasing nursing field specialisation as the programme progresses which keeps you abreast of the current developments within your chosen field of nursing. On completion, this course will support you to become a creative, innovated and dynamic nurse with an excellent grounding in nursing theory and practice.

Year 1 lays the foundations about what the role of the nurse is and introduces you to the Nursing and Midwifery code as well as theories and models of nursing and nursing skills. It also focuses on anatomy and physiology, determinants of health across the life span, communication, compassionate care, and ethics and inter-professional working. You will also begin to develop academic and research skills.

Year 2 to builds on the work undertaken previously, but also introduces factors which influence health and well-being such as global and national public health priorities. You will explore the impact of altered health status on the individual and their family/carers over the life span. In addition, you will acquire deeper understanding of inter-professional healthcare delivery which includes looking at aspects of co-production, individuals’ rights and inclusion.

Year 3 builds and consolidates your knowledge within your specific field of nursing. Here you will looks more specifically at complex health care needs, health care delivery, interventions, governance, leadership and decision-making. You will undertake a literature review which provides opportunities to build upon your prior learning and experience in an area of interest to you.
