Early Insights: Understanding the value of the specialist practitioner qualification
Jane Young and Kellie Norris
The specialist practitioner qualification, District Nurse (SPQDN), is a national specialist post-registration qualification. After a six-year absence from Anglia Ruskin University, the SPQDN program was re-established in January 2014. There is little national research to understand the value of the SPQDN qualification or to understand students learning and teaching needs. Using a qualitative approach, we conducted four Focus Groups over two years, Cambridge and Chelmsford Campus mapping to QNI voluntary standards and ‘being a student’. Early findings include understanding political and organisational agendas are important for the students, which increases confidence in team working and patient care delivery.
