Specialist Community Public Health Nursing
Overview of the programme
The programme of study is made up of theory and practice based learning. This allows registered nurses and midwives to enhance their professional skills to a specialist level in one of the two routes offered.
The design of the course is grounded in public health practice. This is in keeping with its overall aim and the statutory requirements set down by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC 2004).
This 52 week full-time (or part-time equivalent) programme comprises 22.5 weeks of theoretical study and 22.5 weeks of learning in the practice setting under the supervision of a Practice Teacher and specialist mentor. This full time route comprises 2 days attendance at Wrexham Glyndŵr University, 2 days in practice and 1 study day per week during term time.
The course is funded by the Welsh Government and entry on to the programme is through joint application and interview by the sponsoring NHS Trust and Glyndwr University.
