Community Health Studies (Specialist Practitioner District Nursing) with integrated V100 BSc (Hons)

University of South Wales

This part-time course is for registered nurses working in a community setting who want to progress their careers. Successful completion of the course will lead to registration of a Specialist Practice Qualification (SPQ) in District nursing and V100 nurse prescriber status with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Currently all staff applying for band 6 and band 7 leadership positions within district nursing teams are required to have (or be working towards) an SPQ so this is an essential qualification to gain if you wish to enhance your career within community services.

Primary services are being increasingly developed to meet the increasing needs of a complex and ageing population providing care closer to home. Community nurses need to have the specialist knowledge to be able to lead and deliver these services while ensuring quality of care for their patients.

This SPQ course will enhance your knowledge of the management of adult patients and their families within a community setting. There is an emphasis on leadership skills, reflective inquiry, self-awareness, assertiveness and critical thinking skills. Excellence in case load management is also fostered, as well as optional modules in key areas such as long term health and diabetes care.

This course is funded by the Workforce, Education and Development Services department of Welsh Government.
