Course content

Make a difference in the lives and well-being of children and families while advancing your career with our PgD Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (SCPHN). Communities have diverse needs and challenges – and we’ve designed a programme that will prepare you to meet them.

As a health visitor or school nurse, you’ll have the opportunity to serve the common good on a daily basis, promoting better health at an individual, group and community level. And at GCU, you’ll get a world-class education from an institution with a long history of training in the field.

We’ll help you develop the skills you need for effective and efficient treatment, with a child- and family-centred approach that empowers providers and patients alike. With a focus on preventive and anticipatory care, you’ll take on a unique role in health service, collaborating with and encouraging new parents and their families.

You’ll use the lessons you learn in GCU’s friendly, diverse and thriving community to build rapport, offering support and encouragement wherever you go next.
