Teaching builds on your existing clinical experience, extending your theoretical and professional knowledge and understanding. Many sessions are shared with other LJMU community nursing programmes, enabling you to better understand and appreciate the roles of other healthcare specialists.
As a public health nurse you must be able to work flexibility and creativity, demonstrating high quality practice leadership. The programme prepares you to take responsibility for vulnerable individuals, identify healthcare needs, facilitate health-enhancing activities, safeguard health and welfare and influence health policies.
You can study full time (52 weeks) or part time (104 weeks), with modules delivered two or three 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 - 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.
