MSc Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (Health Visiting)

University of South Wales

The MSc (Hons) Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (Health Visiting) will prepare nurses and midwives to become Specialist Community Public Health Nurses. You will gain the knowledge, interpersonal skills and managerial capabilities to practice confidently, competently and effectively.

This Masters course has been developed to meet the demands of this rapidly changing field, providing you with a professional qualification that recognises your expertise.

Registered specialist community public health nurses (SCPHNs), such as health visitors, aim to reduce health inequalities by working with individuals, families and communities to promote good health and prevent ill health. We place emphasis on partnership working that cuts across disciplinary, professional and organisational boundaries.

We intend to deliver our courses in a blended format; with a proportion of the teaching and learning being delivered digitally, and where it is safe to do so, some teaching and learning being delivered in person and using social distancing and/or mitigating measures as deemed appropriate in line with government guidance.

Assessment

You will be assessed by a range of methods including written assignments, an oral presentation, poster presentation, examinations, a recorded presentation and clinical practice assessments.

Careers

This course prepares SCPHNs to work in complex and varied settings and have the knowledge, interpersonal skills and managerial capabilities to practise effectively in today’s health service. Graduates are usually employed by NHS local health boards and wider employment opportunities are developing.
