Specialist Community Public Health Nursing

The primary aim of this course is to develop your professional career beyond initial registration as a nurse or midwife. To achieve this, the course aims to prepare you to meet the academic, practice and professional requirements that will enable you to apply to Part 3 of the NMC register as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse (HV or SN). It also aims to support your individual learning needs on your chosen pathway, either HV or SN and in the context of interprofessional practice; to practise as part of a team and apply professional judgement, to be accountable for decisions made in changing and challenging environments within the field of practice, either Health Visiting or School Nursing. Applicants are required to have current registration with the NMC as either a Nurse or a Midwife, and hold a diploma in Nursing or Midwifery (or have the equivalent academic credits i.e. 240 level 5 credits). If you have a degree and don't fulfil the criteria to study at Level 7 or do not want to, you can apply for the Level 6 Graduate Diploma. Your current NMC registration must be maintained for the duration of the course and as part of professional registration. If you don't have the academic credits we would advise you apply to undertake the Portfolio for Entry to Degree qualification in the CPD Scheme. Specialist Community Public Health Nursing is currently offered in both School Nursing and Health Visiting pathways.
