Are you seeking to train as a health visitor and build the knowledge and skills to achieve your career ambitions? Our PgDip SCPHN (Health Visiting) programme is NMC approved and delivered by our expert academic team working in in partnership with a number of local NHS organisations.
The Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (SCPHN) (Health Visiting) course from the University of Bolton is designed to provide you with a comprehensive overview of the health visiting profession, with the aim of equipping you with both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to succeed in your career. Our programme was the first in the country to be accredited by the UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative, which recognises programmes that support mothers in effective breastfeeding. We also provide training in the Solihull Parenting Approach, which supports practitioners in promoting emotional health and wellbeing in children and families.
Studying a course curriculum developed in line with the professional standards of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), you’ll cover subjects like leading health promotion practice, collaborative working for health improvement and safeguarding children. You’ll also have the opportunity to get hands-on and build your practical skills in partnership with primary healthcare trusts and within our state-of-the-art healthcare teaching and research facility, Bolton One.
This Specialist Community Public Health Nursing course is designed to prepare practitioners for the role of health visitor. If you’re a nurse or midwife and wish to further develop your career through working with clients and communities to improve health it should be of interest to you.
Health Visiting consists of developing, leading and managing activities that aim to promote health and social well-being, prevent health breakdown and improve ill health through working with individuals, families and communities. Health visitors seek to help clients take control of their lives and protect vulnerable members of society, by promoting social inclusion and reducing inequalities.
The course aims to help you gain a wide range of skills and supporting knowledge, including leadership, communication, enquiry, advocacy, critical reflection and analysis skills. We’ll support you as you learn how to think, read and write critically around contemporary issues, in order to become a flexible, autonomous and highly-skilled practitioner.
