Course summary

Overview

This pioneering programme is the first specialist route for mental health nurses in the UK to be accredited by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN). We aim to produce mental health practice leaders who can innovate in complex workplace settings to deliver highly effective care for diverse and complex patient groups. With mental health issues infiltrating all aspects of health care, providing education to advanced mental health practitioners addresses a national imperative and driver for state of the art mental health care provision.

Employability

We aim to develop a number of competencies required for advanced practice roles (RCN 2012, DH 2010). Successful completion of the course will equip you to undertake leadership roles and advance your career. As more Advanced Nurse Practioners in Mental Health are created, we envisage new and exciting roles being developed in services where their unique skill set can be best positioned to impact patient care.
