(with NMC SCPHN registration as either a Health Visitor or School Nurse) Subject to validation and joint approval with the NMC in October 2012.

This course is designed to enable students to achieve both the professional and academic competencies required for the practice of Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (with NMC registration of either Health Visiting or School Nursing) along with the option to undertake integral to the course the NMC recorded qualification Nurse prescribing (V100).

They will develop the knowledge and skills to enhance personal performance and effectiveness in the provision of health care, which is underpinned by appropriate theory, research and evidence, and which reflect contemporary perspectives. Emphasis is placed upon acknowledging the multi-dimensional nature of human beings and in striving to provide health promoting care and support with the assistance of the multi-disciplinary team, appropriate organisations and agencies.

Teaching and assessment

Our teaching approach is ideally designed for studying at home and in the workplace. Study materials are available online in the DMU virtual learning environment. We suggest you will need to spend about 10-15 hours per week week studying the course material and undertaking assessment.

There is some attendance required at the university for UK-based students:

- An induction day, as you start the course, to introduce you to the programme team, the study facilities available to you, the course requirements and patterns of study.Two study days per year, where you will have small group tutorials about the assignments, do some further study in groups, and maybe sit a study day assessment, depending on the module

If you choose the independent prescribing option in the diploma stage this is taught partly by face-to-face teaching at DMU over 11 study days and two assessment days.

Assessments include written reports, clinical interventions, CPD cycles, presentation of patient cases and care plans. If students study the Independent Prescribing module, assessments also include OSCEs, oral examination and a reflective journal.


This is a modular course and each module is individually assessed. A variety of assessment strategies are used including essays, reports, assessed seminars and a research dissertation.

There is the expectation that you will take responsibility for your learning and will seek support from the academic team as necessary. The philosophy of the course reflects the belief that you will manage your own learning independently with support from the course tutors.

It is also possible to exit with a post graduate certificate or diploma.

You can get more information from the DMU website (PG Courses: http://www.dmu.ac.uk/study/postgraduate-study/postgraduate-study.aspx)
