This flexible programme has been designed to prepare and develop post registration nurses for diverse and complex roles within the community. It is aimed at nurses who currently work in a community environment and nurses whose role may move from acute to community settings in the future.
This is a modular programme for those wishing to pursue a BSc (Hons) in Community Practice and whose role does not require a community specialist practice qualification. Course fee funding is available from NLIAH, for nurses currently working in the community in Wales and for nurses whose future roles will be in the community, for the mandatory Fundamentals module and for additional modules in consultation with your organisation and the SONMS.
The BSc (Hons) in Community Practice is made up of 120 credits at level 3, with 30 credits awarded for the core ‘Fundamentals’ module, 50/60 credits from optional modules relevant to each student’s community role, selected from a choice of modules outlined below and 40 credits for the dissertation module. All modules are 50% theory and 50% practice. The programme may be undertaken either full time over one academic year or via a part time route over two to three years. All students will follow the two core modules and two optional modules that apply to their clinical area. On successful completion students will be awarded a BSc (Hons) in Community Practice.
