Course summary

Do you want to build on your experience as a health or social care practitioner? Are you keen to develop an understanding of the knowledge and evidence that positively contribute to the health and wellbeing of persons, groups and populations? Our innovative Person-Centred Practice (PCP) Framework offers a flexible suite of course routes that will give you a valuable, career-expanding qualification in person-centred practice.

With part-time and full-time options, this Framework will appeal to health and social care professionals and graduates in health or social care who wish to develop their careers. We have carefully structured the Framework to be as flexible as possible, so you can study the route that best meets your professional background and future aspirations.

This PgDip Person-Centred Practice (School Nursing) is NMC registered nurses and midwives already working in, or wishing to work in, the community in a school nursing capacity.

Why QMU?

  • You will engage with contemporary, creative and interactive learning approaches that are designed to help you thrive in your studies.
  • You will learn from passionate and internationally renowned person-centred practice academics including Professor Brendan McCormack and Professor Jan Dewing.
  • Flexible pathways, allowing you to personalise your learning to your own situation.

Course overview

This Framework is for graduates and practitioners who wish to develop their careers in the broad field of health and social care. You can personalise your learning to your own situation – for example mental health, social care, infection control, acute care or community health. You can also sign up to study single modules.

Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) registered nurses already working in, or wishing to work in, the community can undertake a specified group of modules that allows them to achieve a community qualification or registration recognised by the NMC in District Nursing, Health Visiting or School Nursing.

Teaching, learning and assessment

Our teaching, learning and assessment strategy is framed by our core philosophical concepts of personhood, person-centredness, human valuing, healthful relations, human potential and development, and supportive and enabling environments. Central to this strategy is the need for learners to engage in the learning experiences, a readiness to listen and explore, preparedness to be open to experiences and a resolve to keep going. This environment will generate an ethos of engagement and where students can explore and challenge theories, practices and different sources of knowledge creatively in an atmosphere of high challenge and high support.

Assessment strategies will encourage application to practice. This will be achieved through the use of varied strategies which draw on the student’s own areas of practice such as portfolio development, practice proposals, annotated bibliographies, simulation events, games, seminar presentations and self-determined contextual assignment topics.
