Take your career in community children’s nursing forward on this specially-developed specialist practitioner course.
Approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), it covers all the areas you need to qualify in to become a sought-after specialist in this dynamic field of nursing.
The advanced grounding you need
Community children’s nursing is a rewarding and rapidly-evolving area that requires a unique set of skills and knowledge. By studying at SPQ level, you’ll gain up-to-date skills and knowledge, and become highly skilled at caring for children in their own homes, and leading large teams of nurses to do so.
Take a bigger picture view
This specialist course takes you through key aspects of current community children’s nursing practice, from mental health across the lifespan and safeguarding to effective caseload management.
Developing strong leadership skills, you will also learn to take a more strategic view of the way children’s healthcare is delivered in the community, drawing on the latest research, ideas and policy.
One of the few places to study this
Highly regarded by students and practice partners for our teaching in this area, we are one of just a handful of universities in the country offering this type of specialist children’s nursing qualification. You will work with highly skilled academics, who have worked in community practice – and spend 50% of your time in practice yourself, consolidating and deepening your understanding and skills.
Who is it for?
This course is for qualified nurses with a diploma. You will be sponsored by a health organisation or trust and achieve a degree, while gaining advanced skills and knowledge in an area of community nursing you want to specialise in.
You can choose to study this course either full-time or part-time.
