Course summary

Overview

Get the skills to boost your career

A 2010 amendment by the Nursing and Midwifery Council now requires pre-registration nurses to have a minimum of degree level study. This means employers increasingly require mental health nurses from band five upwards to hold at least a degree qualification. Our course will help you top-up your knowledge and pursue a career in the mental health nursing field.

This one-year top-up course has been designed specifically for qualified and registered mental health nurses with a DipAdvanced, CertHE or DipHE qualification (who have engaged in credited CPD studies following qualification) to gain an undergraduate degree.

You’ll study many broad topics and practice approaches to build on your existing knowledge and to expand your skills. You’ll also get the opportunity to study clinical and professional practice-related inquiry methods that’ll help you engage in clinical and healthcare practice alongside organisational development.

This course will expand your skills, develop your clinical practice and boost your career opportunities in the field. After graduation, you can look forward to expanding your career into specialist and leadership roles or even undertake postgraduate studies. Your career options will include clinical manager, research nurse, clinical positions, and many more.

How you’ll practice your skills

You’ll undertake study projects where you’ll explore many different themes. Past projects have looked at service needs of patients with dual diagnoses in a community mental health forensic setting. Studying with other practising nurses will also go further in enhancing your learning.

We ensure you’ll receive career counselling guidance before, during and after your course, as well as support from senior staff.

Get the support you need

We ensure every student has adequate support throughout their time with us. That’s why you’ll get matched with a Personal Tutor as well as a Student Learning Assistant and a Graduate Academic Assistant. They’ll have experience in your subject area and will be able to help whenever you need
