Course content

Drawing on Surrey’s excellent research base and benefitting from strong links with practice, our programme is responsive to the dynamic and evolving nature of the primary and community care setting. It is designed to advance your ability to critically analyse and lead on innovation and change in the workplace.

A community children’s nurse needs high-level clinical skills and an in-depth understanding of the context within which primary and community care is delivered.

Our programme will provide these, in addition to nurturing the values required in modern healthcare such as compassion, advocacy, good communication and teamwork skills, and respect for patients’ privacy, dignity and individuality.

Our programme allows shared learning with practitioners from other specialities and draws on Surrey’s excellent research base within the School of Health Sciences. Students benefit from strong links with practice, and programmes are designed to be responsive to changing practice needs.
