We place a strong focus on nurturing positive relationships with team members and other colleagues, disciplines and agencies, and working in partnership with service users and carers to develop user and family-centred holistic care.
You'll evaluate knowledge relating to change and service improvement, and put forward your own ideas for initiating and leading service developments.
Completing the Specialist Practice (District Nursing) from University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) full or part-time alongside your work, and studying at a pace that suits you and your organisation, you'll put what you learn into practice in your work, supported by your own mentor.
Careers / Further study
NHS employers increasingly require district nurses to hold the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) recordable specialist practice qualification (SPQ) in district nursing. You'll achieve this by completing the course to PG Dip level.
You can choose to continue to master's level if you want to take your learning further, carrying out your own research on an area of practice that interests you.
You'll be equipped to lead teams of nurses in the community, and to work in more senior district nurse roles. You will be sought after for your leadership skills, strategic thinking, and ability to manage large teams of nurses in challenging and complex environments.
PG Dip / MSc Specialist Practice (District Nursing) leads to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) recordable specialist practice qualification (SPQ) in district nursing.
