If you are a qualified adult nurse, this course will enable you to specialise as a district nurse and register as a specialist practitioner in district nursing and community practitioner nurse prescribing with the Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC).

Your studies will prepare you to use your discretion and judgement to make high-level clinical decisions in the management and provision of quality care.

You will learn how to apply your theoretical grounding and practical experience in line with the NMC's core standards for safe and effective specialist practice, including clinical practice, care and programme management, clinical practice leadership and clinical practice development. Your clinical placements will develop your practice as an effective district nurse, and they will also enable you to build a network of contacts that will enhance your career options.
