About

Registered specialist community public health nurses (SCPHNs), ie, health visitors or school health nurses, aim to reduce health inequalities by working with individuals, families and communities to promote good health and prevent ill health.

We place emphasis on partnership working that cuts across disciplinary, professional and organisational boundaries.

This course prepares SCPHNs to work in complex and varied settings and have the knowledge, interpersonal skills and managerial capabilities to practise effectively in todays health service. Graduates are usually employed by NHS local health boards and wider employment opportunities are developing.

Programme Structure

Modules

  • Foundations of Specialist Community Public Health Nursing
  • Contemporary Developments in Specialist Community Public Health Nursing
  • Evidence Based Public Health
  • Promoting the Public Health of Populations
  • Law, Ethics and Safeguarding
  • Governance and Leadership

Successful completion of the above modules and the 24 clinical learning outcomes enables you to apply to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for Part Three registration as an SCPHN (in either health visiting or school health nursing) and exit the course with a Postgraduate Diploma at the end of one year if studying full-time.

If you undertake the 60-credit SCPHN dissertation module and successfully complete a dissertation, you will graduate with an MSc award. The dissertation requires critically examining a key area ofSCPHN theory and/or practice in health visiting or school health nursing, to develop and enhance your own practice and leadership ability. You usually submit this within a calendar year of ending the taught modules, if studying full-time. Please note that dissertation study is not funded by the Welsh Government.
