Course content

Summary

The programme is designed to prepare students to register on the 3rd part of the NMC Professional Register in the following areas – health visiting or school nursing. This programme is only offered on a full time basis for Health Visiting and School Nursing students.

Practice learning

Students undertaking a programme leading to a Specialist Community and Public Health Nursing qualification complete 113 days of practice to permit you to attain the required specialist competencies and enable you to make the necessary links between theory and practice. Each student has a Teacher Practitioner identified who provides the support, guidance and facilitation necessary for the student to develop the competencies/attributes needed and assesses their achievement.

About

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.

Professional recognition

Recognised by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for the purpose of registration as a qualified nurse (adult).

Career options

Career prospects of graduates from this programme are excellent with the majority moving rapidly into permanent posts with their specialist area.

Upon successful completion you will be eligible to register on the 3rd part of the Nursing and Midwifery Council register.
