Course summary

This part-time course is for registered nurses working in a community setting who aspire to be district nursing leaders.

Currently all staff applying for band 6 and band 7 leadership positions within district nursing teams are required to have (or be working towards) an SPQ so this is an essential qualification to gain if you wish to enhance your career within community services.

This SPQ course is focused on developing your leadership and influencing skills so you will develop the confidence to implement quality improvements and lead large nursing teams. Successful completion will lead to registration of a Specialist Practice Qualification (SPQ) in District nursing.

This district nursing course is fully funded by the Welsh Government for the first two years and gives you a comprehensive and thorough understanding of the contemporary primary and community health agenda.

We intend to deliver our courses in a blended format; with a proportion of the teaching and learning being delivered digitally, and where it is safe to do so, some teaching and learning being delivered in person and using social distancing and/or mitigating measures as deemed appropriate in line with government guidance.

Assessment

You will be assessed using a range of methods including written assignments and case studies, formal presentations, poster presentations, examinations, literature reviews and clinical practice assessments.

Careers

Undertaking the MSc Community Health Studies (District Nursing) course ensures you will graduate with the knowledge, skills, competencies and capacity to provide safe and effective nursing care in community settings. Additionally, having employees with a specialist practitioner qualification is valued by nursing managers, commissioners and the Welsh Government.
