- Format and assessment -
While on the programme you will undertake a range of modules in semester 1 and 2 that will lead to a level of proficiency which is commensurate with the specialist nature of community public health nursing practice (NMC 2004). It will also build on your previous knowledge and skills to develop reflective professionals whose decisions are based on the best available evidence and who possess an in-depth understanding of public health practice and the differing needs of various client groups. Throughout the duration of the course pathway specific modules will focus on the theories and competencies required to meet the standard for that pathway.
