Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

As a health visitor, you will have a crucial role in ensuring that people have the best possible start in life.

This course provides registered nurses and midwives with the opportunity to become a specialist community public health visitor on the third part of the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) register.

Combining both theory-based and practice-based learning, you will examine the complexities of delivering health and social care services, especially in relation to professional health visiting. You will develop the confidence and expertise to be able to take on leadership roles, influencing and implementing public health policies that will help children, young people and families improve their life chances.

You'll have a close partnership with your assessor and supervisor, and will develop in practice through leadership, multi-disciplinary working, implementing public health policies and influencing practice.

You will also have the opportunity to progress to our MSc, which incorporates a dissertation, systematic review or work based study, and offers you the opportunity to pursue research as a scholarly activity and influence practice.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
