Overview of the programme

Broaden your understanding and develop a critical awareness of the role and responsibility of key aspects of district nursing, including the coherent an detailed knowledge at the forefront of care.


Our course is designed for qualified nurses who hold a current registration as a nurse (part 1) with the UK Nursing and Midwifery Council Register (equivalent to parts 1 or 12 of the NMC Register). The programme enables the student to qualify as a District Nurse and record the qualification with the NMC.


An attractive feature of the programme is that the Postgraduate Diploma element of the courses can be taken full time for 1 year (self-funded) or part time over 2 years (possibility of Welsh Government funding if you work in Wales) or flexibly by a module by module approach (over 4 years).


The Postgraduate Diploma (Level 7) is open to students who hold a minimum of 120 credits at level 6. On successful completion of the Postgraduate Diploma students can continue their studies and achieve a full Masters, titled MSc Health and Social Care (Community Specialist Practice).


This programme is also offered at Undergraduate level - see BSc (Hons) Community Specialist Practice for more details.
