Course Overview

Community children’s nurses provide a vital role assessing, and reacting to, the health needs of children in the community – including those with very complex needs. Approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), this postgraduate diploma gives you the in-depth grounding to take your career forward in this dynamic area of nursing. You can also top up to a full master’s, either straight away or later.

What will I study?

Specialist community nursing is an area of nursing practice which has a focus on assessing, and reacting, to the health needs of children, young people or adults with particular health needs in the community setting. Working in the community requires specialist knowledge, skills and behaviours that are distinct from working in the hospital setting.

Learning about the main aspects of contemporary community children’s nursing practice, you will study topics such as mental health across the lifespan, safeguarding and effective caseload management.

During your time on the course we aim to ensure that you develop your skills of leadership and independent learning. By the time you graduate from the course you will be able to demonstrate a refined level of decision making when providing quality care in the community, as well as enhanced decision-making in complex and unpredictable situations in the community setting.

How will I be taught and assessed?

Developing strong leadership, critical thinking and research skills, you will also learn to take a more strategic view of the way children’s healthcare is delivered in the community, drawing on the latest research, ideas and policy.

This course covers all the areas needed to meet the NMC professional requirements for community children’s nurses.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • understand the complexities of working in a community setting
  • better appreciate strategic influences on policy
  • take a critical approach to nursing care in the community, with a strong emphasis on providing holistic, evidence-based care to children in their homes
  • analyse how decisions about care are made, drawing on relevant research
  • work at the forefront of caring for children with a range of healthcare needs.
  • flexible, practice-based learning.

The course makes use of a range of flexible learning and assessment approaches, to ensure you learn in the way that suits you best. We will be looking, in particular, at how well you apply the theory to your own nursing and leadership practice.

You will benefit from strong support throughout, with personal and link tutors at the University, and a practice teacher supporting you to learn in your trust.

As well as spending half your time in practice, case study-type simulations will allow you to explore the kind of issues you will face as a children’s community nurse. You will also work closely with students from other community nursing courses at BNU, building your experience of working in a multi-professional way.

By the end of the course, you will have developed the higher level of skills and knowledge you need to become a leader in this specialist field of nursing. Your e-portfolio will provide evidence of this, to validate your learning with the NMC.

Using your extended knowledge of community practice and utilising a critical, evidence based approach you will leave the programme as a safe and competent Specialist Community Practitioner (SPQ).

What are my career prospects?

As a graduate of this course, you will be well equipped to advance your career as a team leader in community children’s nursing. Your specialist skills and knowledge will also be sought after in areas such as managing community services, other management roles and teaching.
