The program aims to ensure that students are prepared to promote health and social well- being through the achievement of the standards of proficiency of specialist community public health nursing (NMC 2004) and adherence to The Code (NMC, 2018).
Practitioners are challenged to consider the socio-economic, political and professional factors that influence and reflect health care demands and provision.
