What will I learn?

Overview

Do you have a first degree and are ready to study at postgraduate level? Are you a qualified nurse or midwife and looking for your next career step? Perhaps you would like to progress into a leadership or management role. This course enables you to specialise in one of three areas and on successful completion of the course you’ll be a qualified Specialist Community Public Health Nurse in your chosen area. Our course is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), granting a license to practice, so you’ll be eligible to apply for specialist community public health nurse posts within your specialism. You’ll be at the forefront of specialist nursing and be able to influence and facilitate change within the community environment.

Once you have successfully completed the Specialist Community Public Health Nursing PG Diploma at Brunel, you’ll have the option to apply to complete the MSc qualification by registering for a dissertation module for an additional fee.

Careers and your future

Fifty per cent of the course involves supervised practice placements within your chosen area of specialist practice. These are generally arranged with NHS trusts and involve experienced practice teachers who attend study days at Brunel.

If you have specialised in Occupational Health Nursing you’ll gain practical experience within occupational settings in either the public or private sector, and be supported by a qualified and experienced practice teacher. Career opportunities are available within the private sector such as airlines or retail, with local authorities and within the public sector. Students can also exit with PGDip awards.
