Course summary

Why choose this course?

This course provides you with theoretical knowledge and practical experience needed to register as a mental health nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. Our partnership with the South West London Recovery College offers you the opportunity to learn from and with mental health service users. Our mental health ward simulations have received Nursing Times Awards for 'Innovation in mental health teaching'. You will have the opportunity to take a national or international elective module at the end of your first year.

What you will study

Mental health nursing is underpinned by the notion of 'recovery', and you work collaboratively with service users to build on their strengths and manage their problems to encourage the best quality of life. The first year is divided into two parts. In part one you will undertake a bridging module introducing you to the foundations of nursing. In part two you will look at the context of nursing within mental health. In your second year (part three) you will learn about the analysis and application of research and evidence base, the complexities of nursing at an individual and organisational level as well as preparing for your transition to registered nurse.

Teaching and assessment

We offer a range of innovative and flexible approaches to teaching and learning which includes: classroom based learning; simulated practical exercises; case based learning; clinical placements; self-directed learning; individual and group working; research; and online resources.

After you graduate

This course enables you to join as a registered nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. You will be able to progress into a variety of nursing careers, from acute, community and specialist settings within the NHS or independent sector across the lifespan. This could include settings such as hospitals, GPs, community mental health nursing teams, prisons, drug and alcohol services, forensics, CAHMS, eating disorder units, private hospitals and third sector organisations.
