Strwythur y cwrs

The diploma course is divided into four modules that are credit rated. Each taught module offers 30 credits and all must be successfully completed in order for students to have their name included on the third part of the professional register as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse.

The course offers an optional dissertation for those who wish to move to MSc level.

The Pg Dip full-time route consists of four modules over a 45 week period, followed by a period of consolidation (which takes you up to 52 weeks). Each module is credit rated at M level and all five modules are compulsory.

Note: A clinical practice element will account for 50% of the taught programme, which is in accordance with NMC (2004) regulations. Students are required to pass assessment in both their clinical and theoretical work in order to achieve their qualification as a Specialist Community Public Health nurse.

Each student will be allocated a practice teacher (PT) who will take accountability and responsibility for assessing the student's clinical progress, which is evidenced through a clinical portfolio.

Students who complete the programme successfully will be awarded a Pg Dip in Specialist Community Public Health Nursing and registered at the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a Health Visitor. Students may proceed to Part 2 to obtain a Master’s Degree in specialist Community Public Health Nursing any time within three years of completing the Pg Dip SCPHN.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2020/21. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2020.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.
