This District Nursing programme combines theoretical study and supervised practice within a primary care setting. It involves a great deal of critical analysis, synthesis, evaluation, discussion, dialogue and debate.
The course’s student-centred approach values prior learning and experience and builds on existing clinical and theoretical knowledge.
You will be encouraged to share your past experiences as you network within your peer group and beyond.
Many sessions are co-taught with other community nursing programmes enabling you to gain a better understanding and appreciation of the roles played by, and the challenges faced by, other healthcare specialists.
You can study full time (40 weeks) or part time (80 weeks). Modules are delivered one or two days a week and clinical placements intersperse the classroom learning blocks. Theory days can be used for activities such as complementary module-related sessions, masterclasses, personal study and assignment preparation.
You will be appointed a personal tutor to support and oversee your progress throughout the course and you will work with an experienced practitioner on work placements.
