The Primary Care Nursing programme at Anglia Ruskin University aims to meet the training and educational needs of nurses working at an advanced level in General Practice and a multitude of other creative primary and community healthcare settings. The PG Dip and Masters in Primary Care nursing will be delivered from Cambridge, Peterborough or Chelmsford and you can select which campus you attend.
If you are a nurse currently working in community settings, you can access a wide variety of specialist modules to update, upskill and embed your practice. You will build practical skills with an array of specialist and more general modules to expand and progress your professional direction. If you are new to primary and community care, you will find a variety of modules supporting you to become quickly established in the provision of care and services in this area.
Primary care and community settings will be brought to life and you will benefit from ongoing support from the University, which will include visits at your personal practice environment. Close contact and support from your personal tutor will help you manage your modules to gain the best possible learning experience throughout this course. Your personal tutor will be one of a number of highly experienced lecturers selected specifically to match your learning needs.
Nurses wishing to start a career in general practice, primary or community care nursing will find this course tailored to their needs. Those nurses already working in these areas will find that this course is the partner learning experience to support their current and progressive practice.
There is a wide variety of settings existing in the community where you may wish to start or develop your career pathway. Minor injury units, General Practice, District nursing, Health visiting or Paediatric teams, working in nursing homes, Integrated Care, community hospitals, Sexual Health, Drug and Alcohol, dermatology, Cardiac and Respiratory clinics, ‘out of hours’ and outreach services to mention just a few.
