Course Content

To fully prepare students for specialist nursing roles in the community, the course offers students the opportunity to learn new knowledge and skills. It also promotes shared professional learning about clinical practice, evidence-based practice and leadership. Learning reflects current public health and community care policy agendas.

Course Structure

The BSc degree in Public Health is usually undertaken as an intensive one year programme, it may be undertaken over two years of part-time study.

Successful completion of the School Nursing and Health Visiting routes allows graduates to register as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse (third part of the NMC register). District Nursing graduates can record their specialist practice qualification with the NMC.

The course consists of 6 core modules and one optional module (this optional module is specific to either the School Nursing and Health Visiting or District Nursing routes). All modules are offered at level 3 and M level. Students are taught together providing a unique opportunity for shared learning between school nursing, health visiting and district nursing students.

Alternatively students can take modules from this Masters degree as standalone CPPD (Continuing Personal and Professional Development) courses. In this case, course costs might vary. For further information please click on the CPPD links below each module.
