This Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (School Nursing) programme, offered by Teesside University, is for registered nurses or midwives who wish to gain registration on Part 3 of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) register as a specialist community public health nurse (school nurse) and be recorded as a community prescriber. It offers you the opportunity to gain registration as a school nurse, community prescriber and for academic development at master’s level.
You develop public health practice knowledge and skills in addressing health inequalities with individuals and communities along with public health leadership skills, to enable you to contribute to the new school nursing agenda.
Following successful completion of the required theoretical learning outcomes (120 credits at master’s level) and the specialist community public health nursing practice competencies (NMC 2004) you are eligible to register as a specialist community public health nurse (school nurse), and be recorded as a community prescriber on the NMC register. You continue your studies and complete a 60 credit master’s level dissertation module leading to an MSC Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (School Nursing). This is undertaken as one year part-time or six months full time study after SCPHN (SN) registration with the NMC. It must be completed within five years of commencing the PgDip.
The course prepares you to work as a school nurse and to take practice forward to meet the challenges of a dynamic school nursing profession.
