Specialist Community Public Health Nursing
Overview of the programme
The programme of study is made up of theory and practice based learning and is grounded in public health practice. This allows registered nurses and midwives to enhance their professional skills to a specialist level in one of the two routes offered.
Successful completion of the course enables you to register on Part III of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) register ad practice as a specialist community public health nurse. The course also includes the Community Nurse Prescribing V100 programme (integrated in the Specialist Practice modules), which you will be able to record with the NMC.
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 Wrexham Glyndwr University.
This course is also available as a part-time modular route (April 2018 entry). For further information please contact Janet Gargiulo, Programme Leader for Public Health Nursing.
