Identifying and fulfilling self-declared, recognised and unrecognised health needs of individuals and social groups. Students of this course will discuss health inequalities and factors that contribute to health and wellbeing in the context of people’s lives, and learn how different factors contribute to policies that affect health.
There are two specialist pathways from which students can choose:
Health Visiting
This pathway will provide practitioners with a dynamic, innovative approach to public health nursing to promote health and well-being throughout the population. Practitioners will be prepared to work with individuals, families, groups, populations and communities, in a variety of contexts.
School Nursing
This pathway will provide practitioners with a dynamic, innovative, child-centred approach to school nursing which includes working with individual children, young people and families, schools and populations.
A flexible and inventive attitude and an ability to work successfully in partnership with all stakeholders will be encouraged to prepare practitioners for their role of tackling pressing health challenges in the school-age population.
