Course summary

Overview

Do you have a desire become a School Nurse? Our programme will help you fulfil your career ambitions. This engaging course will train you to become a knowledgeable and skilled health care practitioner and successful completion makes you eligibility for entry onto the Specialist Community Public Health Nurse part of the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s register.

Delivered as 50 per cent theory and 50 per cent practice, you'll develop a broad knowledge of the complex issues of specialist practice.

What's covered in the course?

The aim of this course is to train you as a practitioner who can maintain and improve the health of defined social groups and populations through the use of best available evidence, reflective practice and practical, hands-on experience.

You’ll work to ensure protection of the public is assured by using best practice that works within the boundaries of the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s Code of Professional Conduct. We and our trust partners will ensure that you are fit for practice, fit for the award and fit for professional standing.

You’ll promote public health practice, develop evidence-based public health knowledge and skills, and promote inter-professional learning. We will prepare to practice safely and effectively from a health focus, within a public health context.

The knowledge and skills you develop will be reflected in your ability to meet the NMC standards of proficiency, incorporating the ten key areas of public health practice. You will gain the skills you’ll need to influence policies affecting health and facilitate health-enhancing activities.
