Course content

This course provides student-centred and interdisciplinary opportunities for the development of a critically informed specialist practitioner in community nursing who will be instrumental in changing and developing nursing practice, and who will be a leader of their profession.

Why Study Specialist Practice Community with us?

Specialist practitioners are defined as leaders who are able to exercise higher levels of judgement and discretion.

The overarching aim of our course is to produce a competent, independent community practitioner working at postgraduate level, capable of promoting the development and delivery of community nursing practice across a variety of settings.

Pathways include:

District Nursing
Mental Health Nursing
Learning Disability Nursing
General Practice Nursing
Community Childrens’ Nursing
The course is 50% theory and 50% practice and this is integrated across the duration of the course. You will undertake the theoretical component in the University, and undertake the practice component in a community setting under the supervision of a qualifi ed Mentor or Practice Teacher from the defined area of practice.

What will I learn?

Our modules focus upon contemporary themes such as public health and leadership in addition to specialist practice. District Nursing students undertake Community Practitioner Nurse Prescribing as a module.

You will also critically explore current political drivers which impact directly upon clinical practice.

How will I be taught?

We use a range of teaching strategies within the course, such as lectures, tutorials and e-learning.

There is also the opportunity for the Pathway Lead to visit you and your Mentor in practice to aid learning and support. This will allow you to reflect upon your practice and to show progression within the course.
Over the 40-week course you will have up to 190 hours of teaching; this will mostly consist of University attendance, but there are also elements of online learning structured within the course.
How will I be assessed?

Practice is assessed via a Practice Learning Portfolio under the supervision of a qualified Mentor or Practice Teacher. Modules are assessed in a variety of ways, e.g. examinations, assignments, presentations, oral examination and portfolio.
