Course summary

Introduction

Accreditations and partnerships: NURSING AND MIDWIFERY COUNCIL

The Postgraduate Diploma course has been designed to produce knowledgeable and skilled public health practitioners, able to work inclusively with client groups across different settings within the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Code of Professional Standards (2018). You'll reflect this knowledge and skill development by demonstrating your achievement of the NMC standards of proficiency for Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (2004).

The NMC standards include four key domains which require a practitioner to search for health needs; stimulate an awareness of health needs; influence policies affecting health and facilitate health- enhancing activities in different public health settings. The course delivers knowledge and skills linked to the Public Health Knowledge and Skills Framework.

The course embraces a family/child/workplace-centred public health role with individuals, families, and populations, and focuses on improving health and tackling health inequalities. The approach requires you to work within a dynamic socio-cultural and service provision context across traditional boundaries, to network and develop services in partnership with service users, other professionals, and the voluntary sector. You'll learn to lead, assess, work collaboratively, evaluate public health provision, and accept responsibility and accountability for the safe, effective, and efficient management of that provision.

This course is for people who wish to register on the third part of the NMC register as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse: Health Visitor, School Nurse, or Occupational Health Nurse. The course requires effective registration on Part 1 (Nursing) or Part 2 (Midwifery) of the NMC register.

The aim of our course is to prepare specialist community public health nursing (SCPHN) students with the skills and knowledge to provide leadership and innovation in community health. Our wider goals are to improve population health, in particular the health of children and families, and to prevent illness. As a SCPHN graduate, you'll have the community capacity building skills you need to support the development of fair, inclusive and ever-improving community-based health and well-being services.

Careers / Further study

On successful completion of the course you will be able to:

register with NMC as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse
