About Community nursing
Masters degrees in Community Nursing develop the skills needed to assess, manage and monitor the healthcare needs of patients and families outside of a traditional hospital environment. Alternatively, you can study Community Nursing through a PGDip instead of as a Masters in Science (MSc).
Related subjects include Community Public Health Nursing and Community Health Studies. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Nursing, Midwifery or Medicine.
Community nurses are trained to establish strategies that promote health and well-being within community care settings, and to evaluate the current organisational and professional agendas that influence care delivery.
Training in this field typically involves work placements, undertaking activities such as health visits to residential buildings, as well as school nursing. You’ll examine key approaches including evidence-based practice, leadership and management techniques, and policy research.
Community nurses work within a variety of community settings, often working in partnership with other care providers such as social workers and charity volunteers. You may find work within community centres, nursing homes, and institutions like schools and rehabilitation centres. You might also explore avenues as an educator, administrator or health commissioner working on behalf of a charity, regulatory body or local government.
