The Community Nursing programme offers the opportunity to study for BSc or Postgraduate Diploma in either Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (SCPHN) - Health Visiting or School Nursing or Community Nursing in the Home (District Nursing).
It is designed for qualified nurses (and midwives in the case of Health Visiting) who are registered on the appropriate part of the NMC register. You will also need to have evidence of academic study in the last five years. This programme aims to deliver a high quality undergraduate or postgraduate education, which will prepare students to be community specialist practitioners in accordance with the NMC standards for specialist education and practice.
The programme is offered at Level 6 BSc or level 7, PGDip, depending on your existing academic qualifications. It can be undertaken on a full time basis over one year (52 weeks) or part time basis (104 weeks) over two years. It runs annually from September each year. You will undertake a variety of modules appropriate to your chosen specialist pathway. The programme includes the V100 Community Nurse Prescribing Qualification, which is mandatory for the District Nursing pathway and optional for Health Visiting.
Qualification as a specialist practitioner is dependent on passing both the academic and practice elements of the programme. You will spend half of your time in practice where you will be allocated a qualified Practice Teacher who will support you in achieving the practice learning outcomes.
