This programme is underpinned by three core values:

Further contributory values include collaboration, partnership, professional expertise and innovation. These values shape and inform both the theory and practice to ensure that high quality care is delivered to a rapidly changing and diverse primary care environment. 

Practitioners who undertake this programme will be highly motivated practitioners who demonstrate a strong commitment to developing District Nursing practice based on the integration of critically appraised evidence with professional expertise. It is expected that students will have a wealth of previous experience which will be utilised, challenged and built upon. The programme embraces a facilitative approach to learning, coordinated to support the practice element at the centre of the programme
