If you are considering studying Specialist Community Public Health Nursing, then you are committed to working jointly with the NHS to demonstrate the values and beliefs of the constitution. Patients, public and staff have helped develop this expression of values that inspire passion in the NHS and that should underpin everything it does. Individual organisations will develop and build upon these values, tailoring them to their local needs. The NHS values provide common ground for co-operation to achieve shared aspirations, at all levels of the NHS.

The Occupational Health Nursing specialism develops skills in the provision of healthcare in the workplace. At Brunel we provide many opportunities and experiences within your degree programme and beyond – work-based learning, professional support services, volunteering, mentoring, sports, arts, clubs, societies, and much, much more – and we encourage you to make the most of them, so that you can make the most of yourself.
