Course Overview

This module will enable existing Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC)-registered specialist community public health nursing (SCPHN) practitioners to expand their knowledge and skills to achieve SCPHN competencies in either 0 - 5 years for registered school nurses, or 5 -19 years for registered health visitors, therefore extending their professional practice to a 0 - 19 years service.

Please note: In your programme you may sometimes be expected to role play and engage in simulated clinical scenarios with other students, such as the practice and observation of practical skills in physical contact with other students. For some specific practices, this may necessitate modification of dress - e.g., to shorts and t-shirt. These activities will be conducted in a professional, safe, respectful and culturally sensitive way, under the supervision of academic staff, according to a defined protocol. This does not apply to Clinical Pharmacy practice modules as all of these modules are distance learning.
