Do you have the leadership qualities to become a district nurse and inspire your own team in the community? Our postgraduate diploma will support your ambitions.
This one-year qualification is for nurses who wish to pursue a career as a specialist practitioner in district nursing. We combine the study of health, policy, research and evidence-based practice to focus your career. You will explore and debate policy, theory and research related to district nursing.
Our expert tutors help you develop the required knowledge and skills to deliver patient care in district nursing services. You will learn essential leadership skills and how to head up your own team of staff responsible for this provision. Nursing skills theory is taught and assessed in our four laboratories on campus, which provide a safe and protected environment for your learning.
Careers and placements
Will I have a work placement?
Half of your learning time will be spent in practical work placements, where you will be assessed by qualified practitioners. We are proud to report that all our work placements have resulted in employment, with our students being recruited through the trusts they are seconded/sponsored by.
How long is my placement?
Placement runs throughout the course either as week placements or two days a week plus the final ten weeks of the course are spent in consolidation of learning and on placement.
What are the financial arrangements?
To undertake this course you will be seconded or sponsored and therefore will be paid a salary by the employing Trust; this is independent of the university.
Do you provide employability services?
Our services are designed to help you achieve your potential and support your transition towards a rewarding graduate career.
The Employability and Careers Service provides support when you are preparing to apply for placements and graduate roles. It includes CV clinics, mock interviews and employability skills workshops.
Each School also has its own Employability Officer, who works closely with the industry and will provide specific opportunities relevant to your own course.
