From care homes to clinics, and health centres to patients’ own homes, community nurses work in a wide variety of settings. There’s a particular emphasis on taking care of elderly, disabled and vulnerable people, who might not be able to travel to hospitals. Community nurse jobs give you the chance to provide vital care to some of the most needy and isolated members of society.

Many people use the two terms interchangeably. But a 'community nurse' is someone working in community settings, with or without a specialist qualification. A 'district nurse' is someone who has completed additional training to become a specialist community practitioner.
Community nurses are in band 5 and 6.
As with all nursing roles, community nurses need a degree in nursing, and you must be registered with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC).
Community nurses working hours are generally between 8 am and 8 pm. Community nurses may also be on an on-call rota, covering hours outside standard service times.
