Specialist Community Practitioner Children's Nursing


Course Description

Study at Liverpool John Moores University for this Registered Specialist Community Practitioner/Community Children’s Nursing qualification and have your professional competencies, as set out by the NMC, assessed in practice.

-Study for this Community Children’s Nursing qualification which has been quoted as an example of good practice by the Department of Health

-Explore a curriculum developed with partner organisations, stakeholders and families
-Have your professional competencies, as set out by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), assessed in theory and practice

The course is 50% theory and 50% practice and, alongside its strong academic framework, there is a series of placements to enrich your learning and allow you to experience a variety of partner settings.

You will spend time in a children’s hospice, a special school, A&E, a children’s walk-in centre and a neo-natal unit. These invaluable placements will enable you to build up a network of contacts and a greater appreciation of where your role a Specialist Community Children’s Nurse fits into the overall scheme of healthcare provision.

You can study full time (40 weeks) or part time (80 weeks), with modules delivered one or two days a week and clinical placements interspersing the classroom learning blocks.

Theory days can be used for activities such as non-module specific sessions, masterclasses, personal study and assignment preparation.

You will be appointed a personal tutor to support and oversee your progress through the course and you will work with an experienced practitioner - your practice teacher/mentor - on work placements.

Formal teaching takes place in Tithebarn Street in the city centre campus. This vibrant location offers everything you could possibly need during your studies. The resident Avril Robarts library, for example, is open 24/7 during semesters and has computer rooms, learning spaces and on site catering facilities.
