PG Dip Community Health Care Nursing (Community Children's and District Nursing)

Course Description

The teaching, learning and assessment methods are wide-ranging to fit the variety of student learning styles. In all cases these methods will focus on application to practice, and a critical approach to nursing care in the community. Academic tutor support is offered to all students to facilitate their academic development at a postgraduate level. Learning is facilitated in the community practice environment as well as the classroom and the methods used here are those of discussion as well as critical observation and demonstration, enabling you to analyse your decisions and the decision making process. The understanding of research based knowledge underpinning the decisions is of key importance. You are also encouraged to consider the development of innovative research into your specialist area of practice. Within the classroom, lectures, discussion and seminars are used to enable you to both build your knowledge and share experiences with your peer group. This sharing of experience is seen as a major element in the development of community nurses who are able to practice at a high level, taking responsibility for complex decisions within a multi-disciplinary, multi-agency environment.

Entry Requirements

A typical offer will include registration on the appropriate part of the NMC register and a first degree in a subject relating to nursing. You will also need to make arrangements for a suitable practice placement to run concurrently with the theoretical element of the course. Most practitioners who undertake the specialist practitioner qualification receive sponsorship from a Primary Care Trust. The practice placement is then arranged by the sponsoring Trust.
