Public Health with Professional Registration as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse (Health Visiting) Postgraduate Diploma

Bournemouth University

This course will prepare practitioners to work in defined areas of community public health practice. You'll demonstrate achievement of the ‘Standards of Proficiency’ required by the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC 2004) for Registration as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse (SCPHN) Health Visitor.

During the course you will be exposed to the breadth and depth of public health working and demonstrate your ability to participate safely in the practice of Health Visiting. You will be prepared to lead and manage the delivery of the Healthy Child Programme (DH 2009) provision in collaboration with other health and early year providers.

The course is equally divided between theory and practice based study, with attendance required at BU. 50% of the programme is practice based where your learning will be supported by a Practice Teacher within your seconding NHS Trust.

Applicants should apply via the local Dorset HealthCare (DHC) NHS Jobs adverts. Shortlisted applicants will be jointly interviewed by DHC service representatives and the BU Programme Leader. The academic application will follow your initial interview.
