Course content

Do you have a first degree and are ready to study at postgraduate level? Are you a qualified nurse or midwife and looking for your next career step? Perhaps you would like to progress into a leadership or management role. This course enables you to specialise in one of three areas and on successful completion of the course you’ll be a qualified Specialist Community Public Health Nurse in your chosen area. Our course is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), granting a license to practice, so you’ll be eligible to apply for specialist community public health nurse posts within your specialism. You’ll be at the forefront of specialist nursing and be able to influence and facilitate change within the community environment.

Once you have successfully completed the Specialist Community Public Health Nursing PG Diploma at Brunel, you’ll have the option to apply to complete the MSc qualification by registering for a dissertation module for an additional fee.

On the PGDip programme you’ll follow one of our three specialist pathways:

Health Visiting

You’ll learn to promote health and the prevention of ill health in a proactive and innovative way. This can be applied to individual, group and community levels within the context of national and international considerations.

Occupational Health Nursing

This course covers health and safety at work, risk assessment, management of occupational disease and the promotion of physical and psychological health among the workforce.

School Nursing

This course will prepare you to lead a school nursing team of variable skill mix, to promote school health and meet the health-related needs of children and adolescents at school and their families and carers.

Brunel University London also offers some modules from this programme as a CPPD (Continuing Personal and Professional Development). To find out more and to apply, please click here.
