Why choose this course?

Wrexham Glyndŵr University is the only provider within North Wales offering the District Nursing Programme. 


The programme is 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 it 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).


Post-registration nursing courses can top up your study to degree level or, if you are already a graduate can be studied as a graduate diploma. Graduate students are offered a choice whether they wish to study the programme at level 6 (graduate diploma) or level 7 (postgraduate diploma). 

If you wish to study at postgraduate level please refer to our postgraduate courses.
