You should consider this programme if you are a nurse or midwife with a degree who wishes to pursue a career in health visiting or school nursing.
This programme has been developed in response to on-going work by the Department of Health to re-affirm the essential role of the school nurse and health visitor in delivering a universal and early intervention service to children, young people and their families.
This programme has been developed with local partner healthcare organisations. It is intended to meet the needs and expectations of the new agenda and make a difference to the health and well-being of individuals and communities. This programme leads to a nationally recognised qualification and registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
Please note Prescribing for Specialist Community Public Health Nurses is not a core course for the programme. However, most NHS employers will require you to complete this within your programme of study.
The aims of the programme are:
- To enable you to integrate the study of health, policy, research and evidence-based practice within the context of specialist community public health nursing (SCPHN) practice
- To facilitate you to explore and debate policy, theory, and research related to health visiting and school nursing within the public health context
- To prepare you to meet the demands of delivering a service that meets the contemporary SCHPHN agenda
- To provide you with eligibility to work in a wide range of community-based settings mainly in health and education sectors.
