Course outline

Whether you're new to the field of District Nursing or an experienced District Nurse looking to enhance your skills and achieve a postgraduate qualification, our Community Specialist Practice District Nursing programme can help you achieve your goals.

Community Specialist Practice in District Nursing is a recordable qualification with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) which allows you to tailor your learning needs to your client population. For example, undertaking the Public Health module will allow you to consider a public health issue within your field of practice, such as smoking cessation and diabetes. The Consultation and Physical Examination Skills module will enable you to improve your patients’ experience when assessing and formulating a treatment plan for a range of issues from a long term condition to the care of a wound.

We will help you link theory to practice through the assessment of practical skills. The programme is designed and delivered by our expert tutors who will offer their own knowledge and skills gained through many years of experience; you will also have access to a work place mentor to support the work-based learning element of the programme.
