Course content

Are you ready to take the next steps in your nursing career? Do you want to increase your expertise? As a nurse it is good practice to keep building on your skills, so you can consistently deliver high quality, evidence-based care.

This course will expand your knowledge, help you make decisions more effectively, and enhance your existing qualifications and experience in either health visiting or school nursing.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the complexities of working in a community setting
  • Better appreciate strategic influences on policy
  • Take a critical approach to identifying the health needs of individuals, groups and populations in the community
  • Consider aspects of safeguarding children, young people and their families. As you may be working with at risk or deprived groups, it is important you recognise when a child is at risk of harm and what action to take
  • Develop leadership, innovation and management skills to be able to contribute to successful health outcomes for children
  • Show you have the necessary skills for working in the community, so you can qualify for the third part of the NMC register.
