Course content

Unlock the skills needed to become a specialist community public health nurse on the third part of the nursing register. It will enable you to undertake leadership roles and develop the expertise to influence, drive and implement public health policies.

The Postgraduate Diploma prepares you to function as a specialist practitioner. You would normally be required to undertake the first six core modules listed below in order to achieve this. Our MSc will help you continue with your academic studies as you undertake an extended project, relevant to clinical practice. You will normally be expected to complete the additional 60 credit Research in Practice module in order to achieve this, which will take a further one year.

By critically analysing leadership and management in clinical practice you will examine the complexity of delivering health and social care services especially in relation to professional occupational health nursing.

You will gain a specialism in occupational health nursing, developing the skills to deliver quality and innovative health care to a working population and enable individuals to return to the workplace. There will be the opportunity to explore concepts of health behaviour and health needs within the legal framework to protect the health of workers and the impact on the wider community.
