Study type Taught


The programme is designed to enable practitioners to adopt a strategic approach to the provision of specialist community nursing care, working effectively with individuals, families, groups and communities, involving, where appropriate, an active and effective collaboration with other disciplines and agencies. It fulfils the professional standards for the education and preparation of specialist community practitioners developed by the UKCC [2001] and is endorsed by the Nursing and Midwifery Council. The programme leads to a professional recognition in community children’s nursing, community nursing in the home – district nursing or general practice nursing, preparing students for an enhanced, specialist role with specific patient/client groups in the community with either an Independent Nurse prescribing award or community nurse prescribing award. The programme also prepares specialist community practitioners to effectively contribute to the current health policy agenda through the provision of quality specialist community nursing interventions that promote the health and well-being of individuals, families, groups and communities.
