Course summary

OVERVIEW

Our 40-week, full-time course gives you the opportunity to gain a specialist practitioner qualification in District Nursing (CSPDN).

It’s designed for nurses registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and with active registration on specific parts of the register for the pathway you’d like to study, either District Nursing or General Practice Nursing.

When you’re at university you will study some units as a whole group, with core topics including leadership theory and the influence of local government on the health of individuals, communities and populations.

On this course, you will spend half of your time on placements, and so you’ll need to have a supported practice placement (most of our students are sponsored or seconded from an NHS Trust).

CAREER PROSPECTS

As a graduate, you’ll be able to apply for a specialist practitioner role in the field of practice you studied on this course. You’ll usually work in a variety of settings, including people’s homes, GP surgeries, community clinics, and residential centres.
