If you have already completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (SCPHN) or Specialist Practitioner Qualification (SPQ District Nursing / Community Children’s Nursing) in the UK, this programme will allow you to top-up to a full master’s qualification.

Gaining a master’s level qualification will help you develop your career further. It also encourages independent, life-long learning and research that will inform community healthcare practice.

Who is it for?

This course is suitable for professionals already working in community healthcare practice, as district nurses, health visitors, school nurses or community children’s nurses, looking to enhance their career prospects and gain a master’s in Community Healthcare Practice.

Applicants will need to be on the NMC professional Register and should be employed within a healthcare setting to facilitate application of the research to practice.
