The BSc (Hons) Specialist Practice Programme includes awards in Community Nursing in the Home, District Nursing and Community Mental Health Nursing. This award supports progression to specialist practice level in the chosen route and is an NMC recordable qualification.

An experienced award leader organizes and monitors each award. The aim of the awards is to provide and support opportunities that enable students to develop in-depth specialist knowledge and skills about their particular chosen route, demonstrating they have appropriate attitudes to carry out the professional role required by a Specialist Practitioner.

The carefully selected range of modules mean that students will be exposed to a range of opportunities enabling them to become critical reflectors; able to analyse and evaluate theory and practice from an evidence base; identify need; instigate, lead and manage change in complex and demanding clinical and community settings. In addition students are expected to demonstrate an understanding of the impact of local and national policy within their clinical environment and in health and health care generally.

A variety of teaching and learning methods are incorporated into the modules and assessment strategies are planned to ensure that theoretical concepts are linked to practice.

Practice based learning is supported by a Practice Teacher or mentor identified by the sponsoring Trust who works in collaboration with the academic team and has a key role in facilitating practice opportunities, providing support, supervision and guidance in clinical practice to ensure the award outcomes for practice are met.

Course content

The award has a flexible structure, comprising 50 percent theory and 50 percent practice; both components are equally weighted for assessment purposes. There is a strong focus throughout the awards to ensure the integration of theory and practice.

There are four core modules - Professional Practice, Leadership, Health Promotion and Research. Students are also able to select from a defined range of route specific and option modules. The V100 Nurse Prescribing module is a compulsory component of the District Nursing award and can be taken as an option module for the other award.

Trust involvement and support is essential in facilitating this and it is the Trust who allocate you a Community Practice Educator; these are the individuals who will co-ordinate and manage the clinical component of the programme. This practice based learning constitutes 50% of the programmes and both this, and the academic element, must be passed for you to complete the awards and be eligible to record your qualification with the NMC. The programmes are carefully planned so that your practical and academic pathways are clear to you at the start of your learning journey. Unfortunately, without Trust sponsorship students cannot be enrolled onto these programmes. You should make contact with your Trust to investigate the possibility of funding/secondment.
