Introduction

This programme aims to equip nurses and midwives to develop an enhanced and applied knowledge base in Health Visiting Practice allowing you to exit with the required Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) recordable qualification as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse.

The programme is delivered in collaboration with NHS Health Board and local authority partners in Western Isles, Highland, Tayside and Forth Valley, combining academic teaching and practice learning throughout the programme.

On successful completion of the programme you will be able to respond to the demands of contemporary public health practice in the community and to work to influence and improve the standard of care for children, young people and their families.

Please note:

Students require a Practice Teacher to supervise and assess their placement learning. At this time in Scotland Practice Teachers are supplied by NHS Health Boards and local Authority partners. Recently Health Boards have advised that they are only able to provide this support to students that they are fully seconding onto the programme. As a result we are not in a position to recruit any independent students.

To apply for a trainee health visitor post applicants are encouraged to access the recruitment pages of the NHS SHOW website for Health Board and the MyjobScotland website for Local Authority student Health Visitor adverts.

Academic requirements

All entrants to the MSc/Graduate Diploma in Early Years Practice (Health Visiting) Programmes must meet the following requirements (NMC 2004):

- Valid registration on the Professional register maintained by the NMC;
- The registrant must have developed their own knowledge, skills and competence beyond NMC registration, i.e. normally two year’s post registration experience as a registered nurse or midwife however other relevant professional experience can be considered.
- In order to protect the public the NMC registrants are required to have an up-to-date membership of the Disclosure Scotland: Protection of Vulnerable Groups scheme
- Arrangements made to have a Practice Teacher allocated to the student for the duration of the Programme (allocated by the relevant health board area following successful interview).
- Students must demonstrate the ability to study at degree level (minimum academic SCQF Level 9) (NMC 2004; Standard 5);
- Understand the programme requirements regarding length of programme;
- Support from Senior Practice Line Manager.

Structure and content

This programme contains specialist modules that ensure students gain insight into the complexities of caring for children and their families in the early years and act as change agents to facilitate improvements in care provision. The programme consists of 50% practice learning and 50% theory, as prescribed by the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

The programme can either be studied at SCQF Level 10 or Level 11 and completion of the programme will allow students to graduate with either a:

- Graduate Diploma in Early Years Practice (Health Visiting) (SCQF Level 10) or
- Masters (MSc) in Early Years Practice (Health Visiting) (SCQF Level 11)

Students who enrol on the MSc programme will have ability to exit following successful completion of the 6 core modules with the award of Post Graduate Diploma in Early Years Practice (Health Visiting) and will register with the NMC as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse (Health Visiting).

Both programmes are available on full-time (1 year) or part-time (2 years) routes.

Delivery and assessment

Programme Delivery

The programme utilises a blended approach to learning with the content being supported by web-based materials including podcasts and discussion forums. In addition to e-learning students will attend face to face seminars, small group work and lectures.

Introduction

There is an increasing need for health professionals to be directly or indirectly involved with a range of research, evaluation, clinical audit and quality improvement activities as part of their practice. Current policy and practice developments are also placing greater emphasis on the Clinical Academic Career pathway and there are now many health professionals with a clinical/practice and research focus to their roles. These developments point to the need for rigorous, high-quality interdisciplinary and flexible research programmes to prepare health professionals for these challenging and rewarding roles.
The MRes Health Research provides this. There is a strong emphasis placed on the application of knowledge and skills. The course can be taken as an advanced qualification in its own right or as excellent preparation for doctoral level study. Students can choose to study for a postgraduate Certificate, Diploma or Master's degree. Stand-alone modules are also available for those interested in Continuing Professional Development.
The course has been designed to suit students from a range of backgrounds. Most students (and graduates) have a health professional qualification e.g. nursing, midwifery, pharmacy, occupational therapy. Other students are from the social care or research sectors. Our students are from across the UK and overseas with most choosing to study remotely online as that offers flexibility around their work and family commitments.

Key information

- Study methods: Online, Full-time, Part-time, Campus based
- Start date: Part-time: September and January - see Full time route: SeptemberStand-alone modules: most modules are available as Continuing Professional Development starting in September or January Please note that full-time route is not advised for those that are in full-time employment.
- Course Director: Dr Nicola Ring

Course objectives

The MRes Health Research develops skilled and knowledgeable multi-disciplinary health care researchers, able to understand and confidently use research techniques appropriate to their practice/subject area. Helping students to become conversant with approaches used by other social and healthcare researchers is also key as well as developing practical research skills, for example, in user involvement and the use of new technologies.
The course builds capacity and capability in individuals, and the healthcare workforce more generally, by promoting lifelong learning. It supports those who wish to access a range of research career pathways, and/or further research training by advancing knowledge, research and practice in different settings. There is a focus on both skills and experience concurrently and an emphasis on proactive team and network collaborations.

Other students wish to use their Masters study as preparation for a PhD. Our students have been very successful in gaining recognition for their research work and for winning funding for PhD study.

- Employability
The majority of our students are already working in health or social care prior to commencement and remain employed throughout the duration of their studies.
Our students develop a wide range of transferable skills during their study that make them attractive to other employers e.g. team working; IT skills; literature searching; critical appraisal; presentation skills; writing and data analysis. Many of our students use the MRes as preparation for PhD studies. The MRes has ESRC approval as part of the 1 + 3 years PhD schemes.

Delivery and assessment

Each module commences with a one day introductory session at the University. For international students, or those unable to attend the introductory session in person, there is the option to join in virtually, and we can set you up with our online system called Collaborate so you can take part in the session remotely. Learning then consists of 300 hours study over a 14-week period.
Apart from an introductory session, all teaching uses text and web-based distance-learning materials. The specially designed interactive website enables student interaction and tutorial support as well as providing online access to the course materials and much of the reading material required. Special emphasis is placed on a collaborative and problem-solving approach to learning and on encouraging reflective practice.
All modules are assessed through coursework and you experience a range of assessment including essays, evaluation reports, research proposals and literature reviews.
Students will require access to a computer with an internet connection; broadband or a link to a powerful LAN (such as in a college or University) is the preferred option, although dial-up with a minimum of a 56K modem will also work.

Why Stirling?

REF2014
In REF2014 Stirling was placed 6th in Scotland and 45th in the UK with almost three quarters of research activity rated either world-leading or internationally excellent.
