Registered Specialist Community Public Health Nurses (SCPHN) School Nursing aim to reduce health inequalities by working with individuals, families, employees and communities, to promote health and prevent ill health. The emphasis is on partnership working that cuts across disciplinary, professional and organisational boundaries.
This Specialist Community Public Health Nursing / School Nursing course has been developed to meet the rapidly changing field of public health, providing you with a professional qualification that recognises your expertise.
Designed to meet the NMC (2004) SCPHN requirements of a balance of theory and practice, you will gain the knowledge, interpersonal skills and managerial capabilities to practice confidently, competently and effectively in your chosen discipline and sector. Graduates of this School Nursing course can apply to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for Part Three registration as a SCPHN School Nurse. Funded places are available for April.
These courses are normally supported by Welsh Government commissioners in collaboration with Welsh NHS University Health Boards.
