Course summary

This one-year qualification is for nurses who wish to pursue a career as a specialist practitioner in district nursing. We combine the study of health, policy, research and evidence-based practice to focus your career. You will explore and debate policy, theory and research related to district nursing. Our expert tutors help you develop the required knowledge and skills to deliver patient care in district nursing services. You will learn essential leadership skills and how to head up your own team of staff responsible for this provision. Nursing skills theory is taught and assessed in our four laboratories on campus, which provide a safe and protected environment for your learning.

Half of your learning time will be spent in practical work placements, where you will be assessed by qualified practitioners. We are proud to report that all our work placements have resulted in employment, with our students being recruited through the trusts they are seconded/sponsored by.
