Course summary

One in four people are expected to need help for mental health issues at some point in their life and helping people back to good mental health is every bit as valuable and satisfying as caring for those with a physical illness. For some people, mental illness can be triggered by a life event, such as the breakdown of a relationship, bereavement or the birth of a baby or personal circumstances, including work, an eating disorder or alcohol and drug abuse, for example. This course builds on knowledge of mental health, various disorders and innovative nursing care approaches. It is designed to equip you with the knowledge and competence to understand the experiences of people with mental health problems and to assist and facilitate their journey to recovery. You might help one person to take their medication correctly, while advising or providing another with relevant therapies or social activities. It aims to prepare you for the dynamic and fast changing health and social care system, developing you into an adaptable, flexible, reflective, competent and compassionate practitioner. From the outset, you’ll gain hands-on experience with real service users under supervision from qualified mentors, spending 50% of your time on clinical practice placements in a range of healthcare environments within the NHS in hospitals and community placements, at private hospitals and independent care providers.While the course has a clear focus on mental health nursing, a key benefit of our curriculum is the notion of collaboration across all areas of health and social care. Your studies will be complemented with significant insights into a range of potential challenges to health and wellbeing throughout the lifespan, such as learning disabilities, complex care and life limiting conditions. Our links with universities in USA, Australia, China, and Hong Kong provide opportunities for student engagement in online projects and field trips. European links are also in development with potential field trips and student exchange to Finland, Denmark and Spain to compare health courses and nurse education globally. We are also one of only four UK members of the European Florence Network, helping create further opportunities for student nurse mobility.**Key Course Benefits*** Nursing at Coventry is ranked 4th best in the UK by the Guardian University Guide 2020.* The Alison Gingell Building provides facilities for teaching and research, featuring an operating theatre, critical care settings, community housing and other real life nursing environments relevant to practice.* Opportunities for field trips within the UK include visits to Bethlem Royal Hospital and the Freud Museum in London, Broadmoor and Rampton High Security Hospital in Nottinghamshire and Glenside Mental Health Museum in Bristol.* Offering well established clinical placements, teaching and research links with local partner Trusts within the National Health Service (NHS) and other healthcare providers, such as private hospitals, hospices and community settings.
