Applications for the Graduate Diploma in Integrated Community Nursing closes tomorrow (31 July). There are 50 funded places available for nurses to take advantage of.
This course is a new 2 year part-time practice-based programme designed for nurses working at level 5 of the Career Framework for Health (Agenda for Change Band 5 equivalent) in district nursing, care home nursing, prison health and general practice nursing. It will equip them with the range of skills and knowledge they need to work flexibly and to their full potential across the integrated community nursing team.
The programme is suitable for nurses who are experienced or newly qualified; new to the community setting or experienced in the setting but with limited specific continuing professional development; with or without a first degree. The programme forms the first part of the NHS Education for Scotland (NES) integrated education pathway (Figure 1) and will enable nurses to continue their studies at postgraduate level to qualify as specialist, advanced and consultant nurses in district nursing, care home nursing, prison health and general practice nursing.
