Course summary

Overview

This MSc/PG Dip is the professional qualification for nurses who wish to gain entry to part three of the NMC nursing register as a health visitor or school nurse. Places on this programme are sponsored centrally through service commissioners and in partnership with health visiting and school nursing service providers.

Course detail

You will undertake core modules in leadership in public health, evidence-based practice, healthcare research, child protection, specialist practice and for health visiting students, nurse prescribing. School nursing students may choose a clinically focussed option after discussion with the pathway leader. These pathways are designed to furnish qualified nurses with the evidence to demonstrate eligibility to register their specialist practitioner status with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC). They may also suit registered practitioners who are supporting autonomous practice, supporting educational and practice development or exercising clinical leadership and who seek further educational opportunities to further this.

Teaching and assessment

The programme begins in mid-September. Assessment is predominantly by coursework but at least one module is assessed by examination. Most modules have a single assessment and in addition students write up a project that analyses the research base or policy in an area of their choice. Following successful completion of this course, students can opt to take a 60 credit dissertation as part of the MSc Specialist Community Public Health Nursing: Health Visiting/School Nursing course, where they can seek credit exemption (APL) for their 120 credits completed throughout this course.
