Course summary

Overview

Mental health nursing is a constantly evolving field, with as many as one in four people experiencing a mental health issue each year. We'll help you to meet the challenges of effective mental health care provision. You'll gain practice experience in a wide range of in-patient and community settings, reflecting the diversity of mental health specialities. This could include acute psychiatry, child and adolescent mental health, forensic psychiatry, eating disorders, substance use and rehabilitation.

Employability

This course will equip you with the skills to work in a diverse range of mental health nursing roles across a range of settings, including the NHS and the private health care sector. Successful completion of the course fulfils the requirements for graduates to be able to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a Registered Nurse - Mental Health.

Professional links

The course is linked to the Nursing and Midwifery Council which regulates nurses and midwives in England, Wales. During the course you will spend time involved in both academic study and clinical practice within a broad variety of healthcare settings. A clinical practice placement allows you to put theory into practice by working with a range of health professionals in clinical situations to develop the skills, knowledge and experience required to become a competent nurse. Although sometimes initially challenging, practice learning is one of the most interesting and exciting aspects of learning to be a nurse.
