Our BSc (Hons) Community Specialist Practitioner course is a top-up degree which has been developed to enable nurses to obtain a professional qualification in community nursing and an honours degree. The Community Specialist Practitioner course focuses on three areas of specialist practice: General Practice Nursing, Community Children's Nursing and Community Nursing in the Home.
The course consists of theoretical teaching combined with supervised practice in the student's area of professional work. This coherent programme of study enables practitioners to critically examine and reflect on their ways of working thus promoting the evolution of an adaptable, reflexive and responsive practitioner who promotes the highest standards of client care. Theory and practice will be closely linked in both course delivery and assessment.
Full-time: One year, Part-time: Over two years. The full-time programme will be delivered over a minimum of 40 weeks, including fixed annual leave. A part-time option is also available and this can be completed over two years.

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course Information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
