Course content

This multi-professional MSc Children’s Community Nursing course is designed for qualified children’s nurses wishing to consolidate or prepare for a leadership role within a community context.

Being able to critically analyse and evaluate both policy and practice is a central focus of this course. It aims to develop professionals who can independently access information and use it to critically assess, evaluate and disseminate the evidence base for community nursing care.

It will advance your knowledge of the management of children with complex needs, life-limiting conditions and specialist care requirements, and provide you with the skills to support families for whom the focus is providing care closer to home.

You will develop specialist knowledge in decision making, law, ethics and multi-disciplinary teamwork, as well as the confidence to lead, develop and bring about change in community and primary care.

You will gain a recordable specialist practice qualification in Children’s Community Nursing as well as the Masters qualification, and have your professional competencies, as set out by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), assessed in theory and practice through 40 days of practical clinical placements. This Community Children's Nursing course is currently funded by the Workforce, Education and Development Services department of Welsh Government.
