Course summary

Overview

This course will provide you, as a registered nurse or midwife on Part 1 or Part 2 on the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) register, with the opportunity to influence the health and social care provision of children and families. The course will equip you with the higher level knowledge and skills to deliver safe and best practice in the role of Health Visitor as defined in the NMC Standards of Proficiency for Specialist Community Public Health Nurses (NMC, 2004).

The development and delivery of the course is supported by a multi-disciplinary collaboration with our NHS Health Board and Local Authority partners. This reflects the growing priorities that have been identified to provide an improved and more responsible level of care to support, protect and improve the health and wellbeing of children, young people and their families.

You'll be taught by a group of world-leading academics and your experience is enhanced by working in collaboration with other faculties and researchers. The course features an equal split of theory and practice to ensure you can put everything you learn straight to work in a professional setting. A unique feature of our course is the provision of master classes delivered by expert and key note speakers. You’ll also benefit from a varied approach to teaching that includes online guided study, traditional face-to-face lectures, group-work, podcasts and experiential learning. Support and guidance is on hand from your personal tutor, as well as your Practice Supervisor and Practice Assessor. Students can also exit with PGDip awards.
