Primary and Community Care
Community-based care continues to be a priority at both local and national levels, reflecting government priorities to move from secondary to primary care, and evidence that shows that most care is best delivered at home. As a district nurse, community children�s nurse or general practice nurse, these professionals need high-level clinical skills and an in-depth understanding of the context in which primary and community care is delivered. Students also need to understand how care is commissioned, who funds it and how to influence these decisions. programme offers 3 pathways: Primary and community care (community children�s nursing); primary and community care (district nursing); primary and community care (general practice nursing). The programme is designed to be responsive to the dynamic nature of policy, demographic change and technological development within the primary and community care setting, and advances students ability to critically analyse and lead on innovation and change in the workplace.
Normally, applicants will have completed a Bachelors degree or have recently studied at FEHQ level 6; individual advice will be provided by the Director of Studies. Students will need to be entered on parts 1 or 2 of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) professional register, and will normally have at least 2 years� post-registration experience. Students applying for the Community Children�s Nursing pathway must have the Registered Nurse (Child) qualification to be accepted; applicants require a IELTS minimum overall score of 7.0 with no component scoring under this.
