About | Specialist Practice Qualification (SPQ) District Nursing at Teesside

Are you considering a career as a District Nurse?

Join us at our post-registration information event for Specialist Practice Qualification (SPQ) District Nursing.

With the increasing focus on care at home, the role of the District Nurse is growing in significance and brings new challenges.

At Teesside, we offer courses which lead to an academic award and the SPQ District Nursing, including the community practitioner prescriber qualification. These courses are available at degree level and postgraduate level, depending on your existing qualifications.

We currently work with the below trusts to support seconded staff to undertake the DN course:
  • County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust
  • North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust
  • South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

We are planning for this area to expand in September 2019 to include Trusts to the north of our traditional area.

If you are considering applying to a Trust in the northern region for sponsorship for the DN course starting in September 2019, then this open event will be of interest.

You can drop in at anytime throughout the event between 6.00pm and 7.00pm to speak to staff and there will be a scheduled talk at 6.15pm.
