Between January and March 2012, the QNI contacted the District Nurse course leader of every university in England, Wales and Northern Ireland listed with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as an approved provider of the District Nursing (community specialist practitioner) programme.

The purpose of the contact was to request the numbers of student District Nurses on the programme at the time of the request, and to identify whether there was any concern at the numbers being commissioned currently.
