Kellie Norris introduces ARU's Community Specialist Practitioner (District Nursing) degree course

District nursing is vital to the sustainability of the NHS, now and in the future.

Our one-year postgraduate diploma combines university study with experience in practice. With the support of Practice Assessors and Supervisors, you’ll enhance your knowledge of working and caring for people in the community.

In particular, you'll focus on population and caseload management; on supporting your patients to achieve and sustain independence; and on caring for those who are either unwell, recovering or at end of life.

As a graduate, you’ll qualify as a Community Specialist Practitioner (District Nursing), an NMC recordable qualification.
