This MSc/PG Dip is the professional qualification for nurses who wish to gain entry to part three of the NMC nursing register as a health visitor or school nurse. Places on this programme are sponsored centrally through service commissioners and in partnership with health visiting and school nursing service providers. Students will undertake core modules in leadership in public health, evidence-based practice, healthcare research, child protection, specialist practice and for health visiting students, nurse prescribing. School nursing students may choose a clinically focussed option after discussion with the pathway leader. The programme begins in mid-September. Assessment is predominantly by coursework but at least one module is assessed by examination. Most modules have a single assessment and in addition students write up a project that analyses the research base or policy in an area of their choice. Following successful completion of this course, students can opt to take a 60 credit dissertation as part of the MSc Specialist Community Public Health Nursing: Health Visiting/School Nursing course, where they can seek credit exemption (APL) for their 120 credits completed throughout this course.
