This master’s level course will build on your skills and experience in community children’s nursing, to deepen your practice, and give you the leadership capabilities to excel in this rewarding field.
Build on your knowledge and skills
Approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), the course covers all the key areas of contemporary community nursing practice, from mental health across the lifespan and safeguarding, to effective caseload management. Honing your critical thinking and leadership skills, you will learn to make better decisions, and be well equipped to lead large teams of nurses effectively in caring for children in their own homes. You will also learn to take a more strategic view of community healthcare provision, drawing on the latest research, ideas and policy – as well as carrying out your own piece of research.
One of the few places to study this
Highly regarded by students and practice partners for our teaching in this area, we are one of just a handful of universities in the country offering this type of specialist children’s nursing qualification. You will work with highly skilled academics, who have worked in the community – and spend 50% of your time in practice yourself, consolidating and enhancing your understanding and skills.
Who is it for?
This course is for qualified nurses with a postgraduate diploma in nursing. You will be sponsored by a health organisation or trust and achieve a master’s, while gaining advanced skills and knowledge in an area of community nursing you want to specialise in.
This course covers all the areas needed to meet the NMC professional requirements for community children’s nurses.
By the end of the course, you will be able to:
Understand the complexities of working in a community setting
Better appreciate strategic influences on policy
Take a critical approach to nursing care in the community, with a strong emphasis on providing holistic, evidence-based care to children in their homes
Analyse how decisions about care are made, drawing on relevant research
Work at the forefront of caring for children with a range of healthcare needs.
What are my career prospects?
As a graduate of this course, you will be well equipped to advance your career as a team leader in community children’s nursing. Your specialist skills and knowledge will also be sought after in areas such as managing community services, other management roles and teaching.
