Course content

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

Our programme allows shared learning with practitioners from other specialities and draws on Surrey’s excellent research base, to assist you in developing these skills and enhancing your knowledge.

Students benefit from strong links with practice, and the programme is designed to be responsive to changing practice needs. It will also guide you in displaying the values required in modern healthcare, such as compassion, advocacy, good communication and teamwork skills, and respect for patients’ privacy, dignity and individuality.
